I have been twice in the last week to the Goudhurst Inn, once for a weekday lunch and once for a Saturday evening dinner. On both occasions, the atmosphere was great (very busy and buzzy on Saturday night, more relaxed on weekday lunchtime), and the food was good rather than exceptional. It's on the pricy side for local restaurants, but they do make a point of saying that they source many items locally and that will never be the cheapest option. The range of food on offer is excellent with a main menu, a special and a lunch menu, and they are very flexible on chidlren's portions. The wine list was more limited, but fine for our meal. Service is friendly but was extermely slow on Saturday night - it was more than an hour after we ordered that we received our starters. Lunch was better, and given that the food was presumably cooked to order (I had a cheese souffle) I didn't expect it to be any faster. I would definitely return, and would recommend it.
