The Poet is a country pub and restaurant that takes full advantage of its location in the Kent countryside. We serve  varied food made from great quality, British produce. Our varied spaces and menus mean we are able to cater for everything from that impromptu light snack whilst on a country drive to a lavish three course dinner to celebrate those special occasions. We also have the facilities to cater for larger groups, coffee mornings and business meetings so please get in touch if you would like to find out more.
