Boughton Monchelsea is a picturesque Kentish village that is home to the Cock Inn, a divine Elizabethan rural inn and restaurant which is filled with low beamed ceilings, an Inglenook fireplace, hand-written blackboard menus and general good cheer. The Cock Inn is dog and walker friendly ��� free biscuits and towels for the dogs, and a warm welcome to the walkers ��� and specialties from the restaurant kitchen include the seafood platters, the belly pork with crisp crackling and Brambly apple mash, and the slow-roasted braised lamb shank with minted gravy on a bed of creamy mash.
