In picturesque Sissinghurst, this 16th-century, former hall house is very much the hub of the village. With its timber beams and Tudor fireplace, the pub has considerable charm with locals supping pints of Kentish-brewed Old Dairy Brewery ale mingling with destination diners tempted by the acclaimed food. Most of the produce comes from a 20-mile radius of the pub and dishes such as pink peppercorn crusted venison, parsnip and horseradish dauphinoise; or pan-fried John Dory, lemon beurre blanc, sautéed potatoes sit happily alongside innovative home-made pizzas and a top-notch children’s menu.
