In a time when every eating establishment is fighting for custom, a really good quality, traditional pub meal is actually quite difficult to find. There are some beautiful pubs dotted all around Kent and some are exceptional, but in my opinion, too many are trying to be all things to all people. I get it. Everyone is fighting for the custom. And the surge of foodies and interest in fine dining makes it increasingly difficult to focus your menu. But if you want return business, pick something and be great at it. Rather than mediocre at everything. There are a couple of pubs that I think serve truly tremendous food, in an authentically beautiful setting. Ones that I will – and do – return to regularly.
