Pubs & Inns

  • Lunch with a view: 11 top waterside eats

    Ahh, is there anything better than a stroll along a water's edge? Actually, yes - a long lazy lunch with some stonking views across Kent! Come on landlubbers, let's tuck in.

  • 21 gorgeous pub gardens

    Fancy a pint? Hell yes! While there are new rules to navigate, when the sun shines, you want to make sure you have a table booked in one of the best pub gardens in the county. Here are 21 to get your chops around.

  • The Curlew, Bodiam

    A warm, relaxed and sociable slice of rural locally-sourced foodie heaven from a top chef to watch, perfect for large rowdy gatherings of friends and family or date night.

  • The Great House

    Who doesn't love a fully laden cake stand? We tried Afternoon Tea at very handsome pub, The Great House in Hawkhurst. Pass me another macaroon!

  • Kent’s top gastropubs

    Foodies rejoice! 5 of Kent's fabulous pubs made the cut in the national Top 50 Gastropub Awards. Meaning that outside London Kent has the highest number listed - woo-hoo! Book your table now!

  • Review: The Potting Shed

    This pub boasts a bit of everything - stylish interiors, large beer garden, rooms to stay and decent, down-to-earth food. Muddy just had to dig it out for you (boom)...

  • The Three Chimneys

    As a longstanding Muddy favourite, we thought that it was high time that we revisited one of our well-loved haunts in Kent. Recently voted as winner of The Good Pub Guide County Dining Pub 2019, we soon discovered that it is still is a jewel in Kent’s crown.

  • Kingshed Pizza

    You know we love The King’s Head in Wye, a gastro pub which has been pioneering the trend for championing local produce since it opened in 2013, and now we have started a not so illicit affair with its new food venue next door – KingShed.

  • Pig & Sty

    Oink Oink, listen up - The Pig & Sty, part of the Elite Pub group has just opened its doors and so we took our trotters down there to check it out...

  • The Red Lion, Stodmarsh

    The Red Lion in Stodmarsh encapsulates everything that we are about at Muddy – quality, cool and quirky. As well as being easy on the eye. Shall we?
