Welcome to our homely little slice of Kent. The Grove Pantry Pub is an old Georgian manner sitting on The Great River Stour in the middle of the Stodmarsh Nature Reserve. The Georgian manner is now our very own pantry pub with pigs, goats, chickens, pheasants and quails all in our gardens and helping us to be proper country folk. Our menu is brought to you by our very own forager chef who trawls the countryside each season to bring you fresh ingredients. If our chickens are up to it the eggs on your full English will be freshly laid and collected that morning and if you cant quite polish the breakfast of don't worry Lily and Pickle our pigs will eat the left overs except for the bacon naturally. If you are naughty during your stay the team might rope you in to helping pick the fresh veg, herbs and fruit from our garden or feel free to volunteer and you might get a free slice of cake. But don't forget there is loads to be seeing and doing in the local area including boat trips chartered from the pub and pleasant walks around the nature reserve that boasts some very rare birds and beautiful panoramic views of the marsh and river. Don't expect a glitzy spanking hotel but expect loads of character, lovely old rooms with all the facilities you need to spend a weekend in the country with the added benefit of a short hop to the beach or Canterbury itself. The pub has its very own pantry area where you can pick and choose items made by the team, we have open fires and stoves, plenty of comfy chairs, a menu to make your mouth water, ales racked up on the bar and some scrumptious wines. The rooms are big and airy in that typical Georgian fashion, each is individually styled and has its own bathroom. All rooms have large sash windows overlooking either the river or across our front garden into the nature reserve. oooh!

We 'escaped the kids' and stayed here 2 nights ago. The room was lovely,large and comfy, with a balcony overlooking the river. Our evening meal was very nice and reasonably priced. We ate Sat next to an open fire, in a quiet restaurant. Our breakfasts were amazing. I seriously

My husband and I booked in last minute to stay for two nights here. Having lunched here frequently as a child, I had high hopes that it would be the cosy, warm and friendly place I remembered. Essentially: it could be that place with minor tweaks but it’s not yet fulfilling

Where do I start. Dirty rooms, no home cooked food, website totally misleading, pictures must have been taken years ago. Overpriced accommodation and drinks. Dirty floor in bar area with sticky tabletops. Stained carpets, no hot water and sometimes no water at all in the shower.
