The Barrow House

This historic pub is located in the idyllic village of Egerton, known for its magnificent views across the Weald of Kent, picturesque cottages and local history. Previously known as The George, the inn was originally built in 1576 using timbers from sailing ships and traditional cob and straw plaster, which still remain behind the 17th-century timber frame, weatherboards and Kent peg tiles.

The Barrow House has an interesting history dating from the last century too: it was the local of choice for Canadian and American squadrons based at nearby airfields during World War II. The signatures of these pilots can be found in the bar, alongside cask ales from Kentish breweries, great beer and a wide selection of wines by the glass. 

Passionate about flavour and quality, the kitchen team believe that great seasonal ingredients deserve respect: handcrafted burgers are made in house, bread is baked daily and everything from the kitchen is prepared from scratch and freshly cooked. Ingredients are mostly sourced from a 20-mile radius using a range of local suppliers who deliver the freshest seasonal produce on a daily basis. Chicken, beef, lamb and pork are all free range and often rare breed, and fish is sourced from sustainable waters. There’s something for everyone on the menu, from traditional pub classics, soups and sandwiches to more adventurous smoking flavours, chargrilled treats and tempting puds.

For those who want to spend more time in the village or explore the local area, there are three beautiful bedrooms upstairs all with luxurious en suite bathrooms and enormous beds to ensure the most comfortable overnight stay or relaxing weekend getaway. Contemporary fabrics and restored furniture give each room a distinct personality, but they share in common a feeling of space and light with large windows looking onto the village and valley.

The village is popular with walkers and positioned on some great cycling trails as a result of its tranquil lanes and landmarks that include a 13th-century village church and a Bronze Age barrow – the unique Ancient Monument that inspired the pub’s name.
