Sitting pretty in countryside a few miles from Canterbury, this centuries old brick-and-tiled pub used to be regarded as a no-hoper that lived solely off its James Bond connection (author Ian
Fleming had a special seat in the garden and wrote You Only Live Twice here – according to a blue plaque on the wall outside). But its fortunes have been revived with the arrival of chef Jim Shave,
who made quite a name for himself at The Granville in Lower Hardres. Local and seasonal ingredients are given a
good stir in the kitchen, producing the likes of game terrine with red onion chutney, mussels steamed in wine and garlic or guinea fowl with wild mushroom sauce, while lemon and vodka trifle
provides the perfect finale. Meanwhile, beams, standing timbers, wood floors and a crackling fire make the bar a must for locals and drinkers.
