Description: Nestling in the picturesque North Downs it���s hard to believe that Maidstone is only a stones throw away from Thurnam���s Black Horse Inn. Looking from the outside like the most traditional pub in Britain ��� white washed, tile hung, sash windowed, sign swinging in the breeze ��� inside will come as no great shock. In winter you���ll find a roaring fire in the imposing brick fireplace, dried hops drape from the ceiling and antiquey dark wood is in abundance. In summer diners can head outside to a paradise of shadey pergolas, ponds and green lawn or eat in the conservatory. Homegrown produce is key in a sophisticated menu which combines traditionalism with contemporary dining with impressive results.

I struggled to choose what to have from the extensive menu but opted for the risotto with salmon. Absolutely delicious!

Check out the range of fruit wines as well as the local cider. You won't be disappointed!

Had a late Sunday roast great to see a vegetarian option ! But roast with vegetarian gravy yes!! Roast potatoes were delicious , as was the vegetable sides esp the red cabbage . My friend had the chicken would have been better if it had been free range or organic . Good selection of puddings I had the poached pear and honeycomb . They serve glasses of prosecco , was sad they no longer sell glasses of mead ! But they do still serve ginger wine.

Wow! Stopped here after a long walk in white horse wood, had an amazing roast dinner, pleased we didn't have starters as the portions are generous. Polite attentive staff and good value. Will definitely be coming again and trying something else on the very varied menu. Highly recommend, also very child friendly.
