The Great House

Gills Green, HAWKHURST, TN18 5EJ

Tucked away along a lane in a tranquil hamlet is this eye-catching Kentish weatherboard inn. Over 400 years old, it displays equally appealing character in the range of rooms that cater well both for drinkers - beers from the ever-reliable Harvey's Brewery are stocked - and diners. With beams and trusses; open fires and stone floors; country furniture and very eclectic decor, there's a relaxed atmosphere here. This spreads informally through the three dining areas; whilst an orangery and secluded terrace suggest undertones of the Mediterranean linking to the peaceful beer garden. The menus combine classic English dishes with a dash of French brasserie-style cooking. Offering starters like seared pigeon and fig salad; mains run to Kentish wild boar burger with fried duck egg, streaky bacon, smoked cheddar and pickled red cabbage; or beer-battered fish and chips. Accompanying a meal can be Kentish cider and wines, and the pub hosts a beer festival every year.
