50 brill outside dining spots

Stretch out the late summer days with a simple lunch in a beautiful spot. We've share the pubs, restaurants, cafes and gardens in Kent where the food is yum and the views are wow!

With summer coming to a close it won’t be long before we’re cuddled up in front of a roaring pub fire, but until then, we’re determined to make the most of the balmy temperatures (yup, we’ve got our rose-tinted glasses firmly on). 

Whether you want your green space overlooking a winery, a mural, a river, a meadow or the sea, we’ve scoured Kent for the best in show. Here’s our guide to the best places in Kent with fabulous scenery, wholesome food and views you can drink in…

PUBS | RESTAURANTS | CAFES | VINEYARDS & GARDENS

PUBS

The Lantern Inn, Dover

A hidden gem nestled between Deal and Dover, The Lantern Inn is a 17th century cosy pub with timber beams, room to stay and delicious food. There is of course the classic Sunday roast, with locally sourced meat (cider braised pork belly is a favourite), crunchy roast potatoes, yorkshire puds and seasonal veg. Delicious gastro-pub food, tick. Roaring fires, tick. Fabulous interiors, tick.

The Rose Inn, Wickhambreaux

Say hello to The Rose Inn, expect quintessential English vibes set in a picture-perfect location deep in the Kentish countryside with stunning British food, sourced from local farms and producers, with an exceptionally talented chef at the helm. Standing proud in the heart of Wickhambreaux village, this timeless 16th Century beauty is cosy and welcoming on the inside, with plenty of space to drink, dine and dance on the outside.

The Eight Bells, Hawkhurst

This gorgeous country pub is within easy reach of the Kent and Sussex borders and is perfect for a hearty post-walk lunch or dinner with a beautiful large garden with heated/covered pagodas. The garden overlooks the Church and Village Pond making it rather special. There’s a pétanque pitch for the grown ups and a giant sandpit to keep the little ones entertained. They serve food all day and with live music on Saturdays, it’s the perfect place for long summer afternoons!

The Duck Inn, Pett Bottom

The foodie fanatics in Kent will no doubt already be familiar with this pub and restaurant set in the beautiful Kent countryside, as the kitchen has steadily gained a strong reputation for dining excellence. Plus there’s a James Bond connection – what more could you want?

This is a great traditional, out of the way country gastropub, serving modern and traditional British food in a relaxed environment. Doggie-friendly and muddy boots welcome, (oh, we like!) with a Summer Garden Braai (South African BBQ) in warmer weather and Sunday Roasts to get us through the winter and beyond – there’s something here for all palettes.

The Bull Hotel, Wrotham

Stunning al fresco dining? Check! The Bull Hotel is a family run, historic Kentish Inn (having been first licensed by Henry VIII) and is set in the pretty village of Wrotham, close by to Sevenoaks. We love the recently renovated courtyard with the gorgeous covered and heated Glasshouse with with retractable arched roof, sliding doors, sleek glass and cool metallics. Perfect for enjoying a meal or drinks with friends outside come rain or shine! The courtyard can be hired for private functions and weddings, so always wise to book ahead if you’d like to eat outside.

Barbecue fans will be excited to hear about the new Smokehouse at The Bull, courtesy of a specialist Ole Hickory Pits wood-burning smoker (the only one in the whole of Kent!). This cooks the meat low and slow for hours using a secret combination of carefully selected woods, deepening the flavour, leaving it moist and butter soft.

The Red Lion, Hernhill

A charming, characterful pub, near Faversham and Whitstable, sitting over-looking the pretty village green – where you cans the original stocks used in the Middle Ages – adding to the history and character. They’ve got a strong foodie offering, that includes all your classic favourites and a gorgeous garden complete with children’s play area for long, lazy summer days. The green at the front has been known to host jazz nights too!

The Phoenix Tavern, Faversham

If you are looking for serious food in a relaxed, happy setting, look no further than the The Phoenix Tavern in the historic market town of Faversham. Head Chef Scott Pendry (credentials include: Gordon Ramsay and Fordwich Arms, impressive right?) and his team have created a delicious menu of regularly changing, freshly cooked local food. All in a beautifully restored building with beams and character galore with a lovely walled garden with undercover and heated tables plus it’s dog friendly!

The Ferry House, Isle of Sheppey

The Ferry House is a beautiful 16th century venue on the Isle of Sheppey that boasts edge of the world surroundings – a wild and wonderful setting, full of swaying grasslands, waterways and water birds flying low across the marshes. Whether you are staying or simply visiting to enjoy a meal, you’ll love the AA Rosette restaurant, a two-time Taste of Kent award winner. The Ferry House firmly believe that local is best – as evidenced through their use of bountiful produce form their large kitchen garden, beef and game from their family farm and local estate, plus award-winning spirits distilled from their own grains. Just don’t forget your walking boots!

The White Horse, Boughton-under-Blean

Nestled in the tranquil village of Boughton-under-Blean this gorgeous hotel, restaurant and bar is the perfect spot for delicious meal or a weekend retreat. It is the perfect location to visit the historic city of Canterbury or trendy coastal Whitstable. We love the restaurant with its natural light, beams and inglenook fireplace and there’s also a peaceful terrace for summer dining or a pre-dinner cocktail in the sun.

The Dove, Dargate

The Dove in Dargate ticks all our boxes, only 15 mins away from Whitstable and Canterbury and has a fast-growing reputation for seriously good food. Plus children are well catered for – phew. There’s a lovely garden with plenty of outdoor seating which is a great venue for live music.

The Chequers, Lamberhurst

Valentina Occasions Dining Pods

This characterful 15th century inn has new owners and has benefitted from a full facelift. The Chequers has a stylish, but low-key vibe and it’s now one of our firm family favourites. There’s even a large and pretty outside garden, making it a perfect sunshine dining destination. Found in the middle of Lamberhurst, this conveniently located picturesque is within easy reach of top day trip destinations, like Scotney Castle, Bewl Water and Bedgebury for starters.

The Leicester Arms, Penshurst

The Leicester Arms Hotel has been at the heart of Penshurst village for several centuries, once forming part of the Penshurst Estate. It is loved by locals, ramblers, cyclists, local businesses and over-nighters alike. The restaurant itself is kid-friendly, with a great menu. Secondly there’s the beer garden outside lends itself well to stretching restless legs. Thirdly, the location is day-tripper heaven.

Nestled in the most scenic surrounds, near Biddenden, The Three Chimneys is an exceptional pub. The food is fabulous, there’s loads of pockets of outside space – from sunspot terraces in which to sink an afternoon rosé to the spacious back garden where kids can roam freely (although it’s a more grown up space – personally I’d prefer to enjoy this one Mini Muddy-free).

This local village pub, offers a warm welcome, friendly service and excellent food. The George & Dragon in Chipstead has a menu that changes daily, so you can be assured that everything is fresh, seasonal and they use local produce where possible. They’ve just opened a brand new play area so there’s something to keep the whole family happy – we hear there’s a Beach Hut and BBQ too! Relax in their garden, pop in for coffee, a quick drink after work or enjoy a tender piece of venison and a glass of Claret.

The Red Lion, Stodmarsh

The Red Lion in Stodmarsh has been a familiar staple in Kent for many many years with tip top food and stunning rooms to match. It really ticks all of the boxes for the quintessential English pub. It’s one of Muddy’s preferred spots during the summer as the extensive beer garden blends seamlessly into the English countryside so you can enjoy good food and good view simultaneously. Plus the kids are well catered for too – hurrah….!

The Kentish Hare, Bidborough

Getting rightful recognition to hold onto this sought after distinction of a Bib Gourmand restaurant from the Michelin Guide 2022 – every time we’ve visited this eatery it always makes the gourmet grade. It’s welcoming and stylishly designed (with the hare theme and quirky furnishings dotted around the place). There’s a beer garden with lots of pockets of space here, perfect for some lunch in the sunshine where you can watch the chefs cooking steaks on two Big Green Eggs.

Walk along the promenade between from Deal to Kingsdown and reward yourself with a bite to eat and tipple on this beachside pub.

The Small Holding, Kilndown

The Small Holding offers wonderful home-grown and reared produce, hence the name. We are not alone in our love of this amazing eatery (which won Best Restaurant in Kent in our Muddy Stilettos Awards in 2019). Food critics from all over the country have been drooling into their plates at The Small Holding, with chef owner Will Devlin recently recognised as Chef to Watch in the Good Food Guide 2020 and credited with ‘an instinctive feel for food’.

There’s a sunny decked area overlooking the smallholding at the front, so it’s perfect for weekend walkers and inside there’s a cosy bar, wooden floorboards and old farm equipment decorating the walls. Kids are welcome but the surroundings and menu are fairly grown up. Makes the perfect date-night option and definitely one for the foodies.

Cave, Canterbury

Looking for a date-night destination, girlie getaway or planning a wedding?

    How about Verdigris in Tonbridge? It’s directly on the river, and you can while away the hours watching the ducks and the boats whilst you eat.
