About half-way between Faversham and Whitstable, this single-gabled 18th-century village inn stands amid wooded hills and fruit orchards – this is the Garden of England, after all. Its matchboarded, wooden-floored interior is warmed by a log-burner, creating agreeably comfortable surroundings in which to enjoy a Shepherd Neame ale and hearty food. Team up and order a sharing 'Polski platter' which features a selection of Polish hams, ham hock terrine, home-made Scotch egg and pickles. Mains include grilled sardines with new potatoes, salad and home-made Piri Piri sauce; or gnocchi with pesto sauce, glazed goat's cheese, semi-dried tomatoes and rocket salad. Outside is a gorgeous cottage garden complete, appropriately, with dovecote and doves; and a pitch for summer games of ‘bat and trap’, an old pub game that survives in Kent.
