Where to Wine and Dine


(The list below are only suggestion of just a few of the local establishments and there are many more, your feedback is welcome )




The Woodcock Inn 15 minutes brisk walk


Our local Inn, one mile up the lane, best to have a torch and high viz if walking back in the evening as there is not a pavement. Can pop in for a drink but you must pre book if you wish to dine as it's a cosy place with a garden , very popular and privately owned .


Woodcock Lane, Iden Green, TN17 4HT  01580 240009



The West House   15 minutes drive 7 miles


Mr Garrett has an unsurpassable record of providing outstanding dining since the turn of the century and has one many many accolades, the best kent secret! Modern European.

You probably should have booked in their tiny family restaurant before you thought of coming to stay here at Waters End.

Fine dining in a less formal manner- not to be missed

Popular quirky old inn in the centre of Ticehurst, great for a drink and or eating, must book for food, lovely for alfresco dining (weather permitting)

The White Dog  (16 minutes drive 6 miles)


Ewehurst village pub, customer and dog friendly bar, fabulous views over towards Bodiam Castle from the garden and good vitals. Very busy on a sunny day so book to avoid dissappointment.


Village Street, Ewhurst Green, Robertsbridge TN32 5TD 

01580 830264




The Three Chimneys   (15 minutes drive 7.6 miles)


Famous old pub  that if you mention you have visited the gardens of Sissinghurst the next question is "did you go to TheThree Chimneys".

Deceptively larger than you expect and at least a glass of ale should be consumed.

Hareplain Rd, Biddenden, Ashford TN27 8L

01580 291472






The Globe Inn ( 30 minutes 12 miles)


An Inn without a counter, more of a display of scrumptious delights tempting you before you have even got the menu. Can only book if large numbers so either be patient or go early or late, worth the wait.


10 Military Rd, Rye TN31 7NX

01797 225220






The Standard Inn (30 minutes 12 miles)


Easily miss this charming little Inn as you walk down Rye high street,smallbut tasty menu, not possible to book, pot luck but usually do not have to wait too long for a table, sensibly priced.


The Mint, Rye TN31 7EN

01797 225231

Landgate Bistro (30min drive  12 miles)


Unusual these days to find such pride and effort combined with good service, offering a small menu of well prepared food. Personally I want better than I can have at home and this little bistro hits that spot. Each dish is considered, well prepared and delightfully presented, good wine list and if you can it's worth leaving room for cheese

The bill will be high but effort costs money and the value is there.

Must book

5/6 Landgate,Rye, East Sussex TN31 7LH

01797 222829




The Woolpack Inn  (30 minutes drive 13 miles)


Food oriented, lovely old pub comfortably bought into our time with some quirky additions. Good beer and good vitals and a cracking Sunday lunch, allow an hour and a half to walk there along the Military canal from Appledorne or drive in 30 mins (13miles)


Church Lane Warehorne, Ashford TN26 2LL

01233 732900




Kitsul Sushi  (40 minutes drive, 20 miles )


If your in Tunbridge Wells, a sushi lovers dream, with plenty of sides, pork noodles and tempura and much much more, you will be floored for choice.

It's little more than a cafe, with formica tables but if you don't book you won't get in.

You can park in the multistorey opposite and as they do not have a liquor licence  pop around to Tesco and treat yourself to a decent bottle of something chilled to wash it down.

Very good quality and great value for money!

Ps: You can only pay with cash!


82a Victoria Road, Tunbridge Wells TN1 2PW  01892 515510
