Nobody is sure of the exact date our timber-framed building was constructed but it is listed as a grade I building with ‘medieval significance’.  A fine causeway of historic Bethersden Marble still present today lines the property and leads up to the fine entrance of the restaurant.  It is believed that originally the buildings on this side of the road were workshops, shops and cottages for specialist clothiers, whose sought after fabric was transported to the nearby town of Cranbrook and then later sold on to wealthy London speculators.A warm and cosy bar area welcomes you to the restaurant, The setting is intimate, romantic and instantly relaxing.  Rich colours, carefully chosen furniture and the authentic dark beams creates an ambience of elegance and luxury.

Our ‘a la carte’ menu changes monthly to offer our customers as much choice as possible, whilst reflecting the regularly changing seasonal produce.  We also have a special menu, which changes daily for both lunch and dinner.  It is our policy that whenever possible we buy the very best locally grown Kentish produce, especially in the warmer seasons when we have village suppliers of beautiful summer fruits, cob nuts and all manner of vegetables.

The environment is very important to us, we consider ourselves extremely lucky to be located in such a beautiful area, which harvests wonderful homegrown produce.  We buy meat from our local butcher and try to acquire locally landed fish from the nearby seaside towns.  In addition, Biddenden, the surrounding villages and towns produce award-winning wines, aperitifs, liqueurs and ciders, which are always available on our menu.
