Local food and a friendly vibe. Great local beers, handpicked wines or pots of tea and coffee, comfy seats by big fires

Sharon and Sally-Anne took on the run-down Queen's Inn in 2014 having run a successful catering company for many years. Rather than deliver food to different venues across Kent, it was time to provide the venue to showcase Sally Ann's cooking and this rambling old village inn fit the bill perfectly. Revived with panache, the wisteria-festooned Georgian façade hides a cosy, beamed 16th-century interior: a bar with wooden floor and huge fireplace. Downstairs, rustic and modern combine in the dining room, with its ancient plank floor, brick fireplace and contemporary print wallpaper. Relax with a pint of Hophead or tuck into Moroccan spiced rack of lamb, sea bass with samphire, crab and chive sauce, Park Farm sausages and mash, baked vanilla cheesecake. National Trust treasures (Sissinghurst & Bodiam) and Pashley Manor Gardens are on the doorstep.
