Nestling in the picturesque North Downs it’s hard to believe that Maidstone is only a stones throw away from Thurnam’s Black Horse Inn. Looking from the outside like the most traditional pub in Britain – white washed, tile hung, sash windowed, sign swinging in the breeze – inside will come as no great shock. In winter you’ll find a roaring fire in the imposing brick fireplace, dried hops drape from the ceiling and antiquey dark wood is in abundance. In summer diners can head outside to a paradise of shadey pergolas, ponds and green lawn or eat in the conservatory. Homegrown produce is key in a sophisticated menu which combines traditionalism with contemporary dining with impressive results.
