Restaurants we Recommend
16th Century Inn in nearby Hawkhurst. The Great House is an old smugglers Inn which has been tastefully renovated and is now a popular dining pub in Hawkhurst. Serving traditional English cuisine, regional French brasserie style cuisine created by our French chef as well as local seasonal game.
