    Sunday Suggestion: I went for a monster walk through orchards, platts, and hop gardens in the Matfield, Brenchley area on Sunday morning, and collected a top quality Sunday Roast from @THopbine Petteridge. James’ food is best quality and his vegetable selection superb. Support our pubs. No washing up just instant gratification, what more could you want on a Sunday. BTW your stiletto’s would definitely have been muddy

      I know The Hopbine VERY well!!! Lots of wonderful walking around that area you are right… It’s a great suggestion – thanks Martin. (And I do have wellies for such occasions – although just keep that between us!!)
