Latest reviews from Chiddingstone Hoath

“I love this place. Had been hoping to check out the pubs of Maidstone but an all day event became an afternoon one so no overnight stay. However I still dropped in here and the hour long drive, partly down dark and narrow lanes was worth it. This pub is in the middle if nowhere and has the appearance of an ancient cottage. Tiny car park so there were cars vans parked down the road. When I worked out which door to use I was created warm conversation and a crackling fire. Three small rooms. A small nook with a few chairs to the left. A slightly larger room, the dining room (maybe 6 tables) to the right. You then have the bar in the middle. You get the impression that it was added to a cottage because whilst being L-shaped, one side only has a few feet spare. A couple if blokes were on bar stools there so had to look between them to see three hand pumps. Luckily my quary, Larkin' s Porter, was on. Ordered a half of this and a half of the Traditional. Got them served to me in one glass. The blokes laughed that this is what the locals do and said, "Don't worry we'll pay for that one." Top notch atmosphere - everyone seemed to know each other and the pub just came across as really friendly. Possibly one of my top pubs??? I really did like it - although on my way to the M25 did spot two other pubs I want to check out. Oh yeah, the booze: the Traditional and Pale are permanent, with one seasonal. Then there are 6 kegs: a local Chiddingstone cider and then some more mainstream offerings (I remember Kozel and Aspinells).“
