  • Muddy eats: Framptons

    Next time you’re in Tunny Wells you might want to check out Framptons – a cool new Café Bar & Kitchen that opened just last month. Located in the heart of the Pantiles and split over two floors it’s the kind of place you can drop in for breakfast through mid-morning coffee, light or full […]

  • Eat here: The Twenty Six

    I think I’m right in saying that this restaurant is Mr Muddy K’s favourite place to eat (do correct me if I’m wrong there, dear. Heaven only knows, *eye roll*, you usually do)… If you haven’t yet discovered the joys of The Twenty Six, then step this way, and let me show you around – […]

  • Muddy eats: The Vine, Goudhurst

    Ah, now I’ve been excited to tell you about this little find for a couple of weeks. Those of you who know this pretty little corner of Kent will probably raise your eyebrows when I mention the word ‘cool’ (yeah I saw you do it). But I’m not kidding, The Vine pub, right in the heart […]

  • Muddy Eats: The Warren, Tunbridge Wells

    On one sunny September lunch time I visited this new restaurant right in the middle of Tunbridge Wells that is offering something never been seen (or tasted) before on the High Street. Food at The Warren comes straight from farm to fork. To my knowledge they are the first food establishment to do this in […]

  • Muddy eats: The Terrace, One Warwick Park

    I’ve been keen to have a nosey around the much anticipated One Warwick Park Hotel in Tunbridge Wells since it opened in June. Sadly the launch party, which I was lucky enough to have been invited to, clashed with the Muddy Awards drinks (the highlight of my calendar, obvs!) so I couldn’t go. But actually to […]

  • Muddy eats: The Swan at Chapel Down, Tenterden

    The first time I was invited to ‘try a Wine Flight’ I thought I was signing up to an afternoon in a jumbo jet full of journos knocking back the Chardonnay (wide-eyed young magazine writer that I was). Clearly, as all you more worldly folk know, a Wine Flight doesn’t actually involve travel – it’s more a tasting journey […]

  • 10 Kent places to eat with amazing views

    In this county we are truly blessed – beautiful countryside on the interior and stunning coastline around the edges. So I’d like to start this post with the caveat that I am fully aware that there are many, many wonderful pubs and restaurants in Kent with truly awesome views. In fact I could probably list […]

  • Muddy Reviews: Brighton’s i360

    I heard about last week’s opening of the shiny new i360 in Brighton — the world’s slenderest building — otherwise known as, ‘that big tower with the doughnut up it’. And as it’s a perfect day-trip away for us Kent folk I hurried to chat about it with Muddy Sussex, aka Debbie who knows all there is to […]

  • Birthday at the Bistro: Hotel du Vin

    It’s my birthday this weekend and as all grown-up little girls know, ‘No fuss’ means, ‘Just a little bit of fuss. Nothing too demanding. A bunch of flowers. A bottle or two of fizz. A dressing gown made entirely of peacock feathers. Or, at the very least, a cake containing a Chippendale, or baby panda.’ So […]

  • Muddy eats: The Kings Head, Wye

    If you haven’t yet explored the Kent countryside at the foot of the North Downs (and just North East of Ashford) – here’s 3 reasons Why you should visit Wye. 1) It’s gorgeous location. 2) The fab food at The Kings Head pub and 3) Cool place to stay alert! The pub has just revamped 8 ensuite stylish […]
