Had a lovely Monday afternoon at this pub set right... More

What a lovely meal we had at the Fordwich Arms on bank holiday Monday. The owners were so welcoming and my compliments to the chef for tasty and fresh delicious food. Would highly recommend the food to all my friends and I cannot wait to go back there again.
