An unassuming building in sleepy Saltwood in the Hythe hinterland is a most unlikely spot for a restaurant of this calibre. Expect simple, minimal decor – navy blue leather seats at unclothed wood tables, creamy walls with colourful framed photos, and plenty of light through full length windows. This used to be a village shop and the old shelving and cabinets are now a feature wall for wine. Service is well informed and friendly, and menus change seasonally with frequent tweaks to dishes. The cooking here is highly skilled with great accuracy, purity, depth and balance of flavours, superb ingredients and an impressive lightness of touch.

About the area

Discover Kent

The White Cliffs of Dover are an English icon – the epitome of our island heritage and sense of nationhood. They also mark the point where the Kent Downs AONB, that great arc of chalk downland stretching from the Surrey Hills and sometimes known as ‘the Garden of England’, finally reaches the sea. This is a well-ordered and settled landscape, where chalk and greensand escarpments look down into the wooded Weald to the south.

Many historic parklands, including Knole Park and Sir Winston Churchill’s red-brick former home at Chartwell, are also worth visiting. Attractive settlements such as Charing, site of Archbishop Cranmer’s Tudor palace, and Chilham, with its magnificent half-timbered buildings and 17th-century castle built on a Norman site, can be found on the Pilgrim’s Way, the traditional route for Canterbury-bound pilgrims in the Middle Ages. 

In the nature reserves, such as the traditionally coppiced woodlands of Denge Wood and Earley Wood, and the ancient fine chalk woodland of Yockletts Bank high on the North Downs near Ashford, it is still possible to experience the atmosphere of wilderness that must have been felt by the earliest travellers along this ancient ridgeway.
