If you picture Kent as the Garden of England, then this fantastic pub/restaurant is everything you'd imagine it should be. Set on the edge of an idyllic village, surrounded in beautiful countryside, the pub even has a series of walks at the entrance - you can just park up, pick up a leaflet showing a lovely walk, and then return afterwards for a fantastic meal, or just sit in a comfy armchair, surrounded by interesting decor, by a roaring fire and enjoy a gin and tonic - you'll be asked what sort of gin (several on offer), and lemon or lime....service is great - not stuffy and formal, but young and polite in an uplifting way. If you do stay for food, you won't be disappointed. The menu is extensive enough to whet your appetite, but sufficiently limited to assure you that it's being done properly. The seafood platter is amazing - served on a slab of slate, so simple, but such a range of different flavours....just WOW!
