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 Kent pubs offering great refreshment and accommodation. Pubs like the White Hart in Newenden, the ideal antidote after a busy day out, or the charming Anchor & Hope near Sevenoaks, where your dog will also be very welcome, too.

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 sample first hand one ofThe Cricketers, Meopham Kent’s most famous assets, local wine.

The Grove Pantry at Upstreet sits beside the River Stour and has gained much praise for the food and drink served their. As has The Woolpack in the chocolate-box village of Chilham.
