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”.

“Original and always excellent” – this country pub out in the sticks between Canterbury and Ashford makes a top destination on account of its refined gastropub cuisine and cosy interior. (In September 2017, it won Food Pub of the Year, in John Smith’s Great British Pub Awards).

A “charming country pub out in the wilds”; it’s “not easy to access”, but worth the hassle owing to its “consistently excellent” food and “great hosts”.
