Pubs in Kent

From mysterious marshlands to dramatic white cliffs, from sleepy villages, historic castles and towering cathedrals to bustling seaside resorts, Kent has something for everyone.

Known as The Garden of England, there is far more to Kent than just orchards, vineyards, lavender fields and oasthouses. 

At Dover soaring cliffs of dazzling white chalk mark the end of the North Downs, inland the massive towers of Canterbury Cathedral soar high above the town,while at the water’s edge England’s Napoleonic defenses crumble.

Kent may boast 12 blue flag beaches, exciting animal parks, enchanting castles and a maritime history that has shaped its illustrious past, but among the small towns and villages is a less obvious feature - charming rural pubs offering great refreshment and accommodation. Pubs like the White Hart in Newenden are the ideal antidote after a busy day out.

These green rolling hills, wooded valleys and far reaching open landscapes are perfect for exploring on foot, bike or horseback. Along the way are many pubs where you can sThe Cricketers, Meophamample first hand one of Kent’s most famous assets, local wine. The Five Bells at East Brabourne and the Black Pig at Hawkhurst, have both gained much praise for their wines from local award-winning vineyards.

Local is also the keyword when it comes to produce and beer. At The Beacon in Tunbridge Wells they grow a high proportion of their own fruit, vegetables and herbs. The Bull in Benenden was the first pub in Kent to sell 'Curious Brew', brewed at the award-winning winery Chapel Down Vineyard.
