The beautifully restored farmhouse and grounds of this popular restaurant are set within seven and a half acres of rolling Kent countryside, just 15 minutes from Deal. 

Enjoy a cocktail on the terrace before being invited to feast from a seasonal menu, featuring produce from award-winning local producers. Menus are small, hyper seasonal and use the best of local and European produce and change on regular basis to reflect what’s best. Everything is cooked over wood in the open kitchen. There is a short list of exciting wines of limited availability, local beers and seasonal cocktails.
