Stylishly renovated country pub in Darling Buds of May country – delicious food and a cute bar popular with locals

You get a little time travel at the Barrow House: a 14th century inn, 17th century timber frames, 21st century comfort and design. It’s a great little place – friendly and stylish – in a pretty village surrounded by open country with Leeds Castle up the road. Known as the George for centuries, it changed its name in deference to the Bronze Age barrow that rises in a field on the edge of the village. Back at the inn, there’s a smart terrace for lunch in the sun, then a couple of open fires inside to keep things cosy. They serve their own ale, craft beers and well-priced wines but you can pop in for an espresso, too. As for the food, most is sourced within 20 miles. You’ll find soups and sharing plates, burgers and fish and chips, or a three-course feast, perhaps smoked salmon, slow-cooked beef, marmalade Bakewell tart.

Dane & Sarah Allchorne:

  • Halfway between Maidstone and Ashford on top of the Greensand Ridge, Egerton is beautiful rural village characterised by woodland and trees, fields and farm buildings and hedgerows filled with wildlife.
  • 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.
  • The inn’s unusual name was inspired by Egerton’s Bronze Age burial mound (or “barrow”), which is a registered Ancient Monument.
  • The Barrow House is just a short drive from Leeds Castle and Godinton House and Gardens, as well as some of the area’s renowned local vineyards and breweries.
  • From nearby Pluckley station, you can reach London by train in just over an hour. Gatwick Airport, The Channel Tunnel and Dover are within an hour’s drive with Heathrow not much further.
  • Don’t miss the lively Egerton farmers market every Friday where you can buy local meat, eggs, cheese, fruit, vegetables, bread, cakes, chutney and more!
