The Kentish Hare

95 Bidborough Ridge, Bidborough, ROYAL TUNBRIDGE WELLS, TN3 0XB

2 rosettes

Brothers Chris and James Tanner have transformed a closed-down pub into a dynamic, splendidly refurbished contemporary restaurant. Dishes that are squarely in the modern manner might include a starter of seared scallops, wafer-thin cauliflower slices, pine nuts and raisins in curry oil, which might presage a main course of deftly crackled pork belly accompanied by goats' cheese fondue and pickled mushrooms. An alternative route might be via chicken liver parfait with candied walnuts and pear jelly to smoked haddock risotto with leeks and a poached egg in grain mustard sauce. Finish with chocolate ganache with a liquid caramel centre ( la Rolo), served with salted popcorn and milk sorbet.
