A “proper rural pub” with “exceptional food” – Rob and Donna Taylor’s rural inn is in “beautiful walking country” between Canterbury and Ashford and makes the most of its “lovely location and delightful interior”. It manages to be “relaxed but very focused” – and is fast “gaining popularity”. (For some walkers, “the only downside is that they no longer allow dogs in the restaurant” – although you can eat with the pack outside when weather permits).

“The best pub restaurant we have been to in years!” – Rob and Donna Taylor’s rural inn above the Downs between Canterbury and Ashford is “going from strength to strength” with “beautiful” (but not unnecessarily fancy) food that’s “always consistent”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
