This is an inn worth trying to find - the atmosphere is terrific and the food is wonderful (honestly). It is important to book a few days ahead if you want a weekend meal and it is well worth the effort.
The bar faces an open fireplace with seating and a low table - just right for a winter's evening. behind the bar is a room housing an old Aga cooker - presumably once the kitchen - but which now has tables for those who want to taste their delectable food. OK his is not an 'haute cuisine' establishment - it doesn't charge silly moey - but the food is really wonderful and the choice is remarkably extensive considering the quality. There are usually many fresh fish 'specials' in addition to their regular menu and all of them sound very good.
The staff are clearly very well trained (or naturally well mannered) as the welcome is genuine. The location is deeply rural - a hamlet on the greensand ridge near(ish) Maidstone - you couldn'twish for a better spot.
Wine? Well if the fabulous, and quite reasonably priced, Primitovo di Manduria we had last week is anything to go by then the wines are excellent.
Judi and I love it so why not give it a go?:
