Lamberhurst Down, LAMBERHURST, TN3 8EU
Built more than 300 years ago, original elements of this country roadside pub are reflected in the quirky stuffed boar's head mounted above the huge brick-built fireplace. Leather sofas, wingback and parlour chairs mix easily with the rustic look and chunky wooden furniture, whilst the eye is taken by a mural illustrating the well-established wine-making craft in the area. The pub is next door to one of England's oldest vineyards and there's a carefully chosen wine list and 20 served by the glass. Fans of the hop are rewarded with firkins from microbreweries such as Old Dairy. From the kitchen comes a pleasing mix of top-notch traditional English and regional French brasserie dishes: seared scallop with sweet potatoes and cumin purée to start, then wild mushroom and tarragon open lasagne; or stone bass fillet with roasted squash, wilted spinach, and crayfish hollandaise, finishing with iced plum pudding parfait with poached pear and chocolate shavings.
