Pubs in Kent
Kent, also known as ‘The Garden of England’ is a vast county that is fortunate enough to have miles of beautiful coastline as well as some of the most breath taking countryside in the country. Of course, here at Kent Ideas, we may be slightly biased as we are primarily concerned with everything worth knowing in Kent.
Over the coming months, Kent Ideas will bring you up to date information on Pubs in Kent, what they offer, the facilities they have as well as keeping you up to date on What’s on in Kent. The team here have been on their travels to find the most interesting Pubs in Kent and have found some real gems like The White Horse in Maidstone where home cooked food and a friendly atmosphere are just part of the attraction. The White Horse hosts regular live music evenings with a good crowd and some great musicians.
Heading out of the County Town of Maidstone we found The George and Dragon in Westerham which boasts traditional oak beams and a welcoming open fire in the winter.
The Pub used to play a central role in village and town life, but over the years, as people are busier there has been a gradual decline. A lot of fantastic pubs across the county of Kent have been forced to close which is the driving force behind us wanting to discover some of the remaining rural and town pubs that still act as a social centre for both the young and old.
It is refreshing to know that many Kent Pubs still hold on to their traditional roots and have not opted to target the ‘Gastro Pub’ format that was very popular in the last decade. It is also refreshing to know that it is still possible to enjoy traditional pub games such as darts, pool and shut the box while enjoying a pint of real ale with not an alcopop in site.
Kent Ideas are continuing their journey to discover fantastic pubs both traditional and modern throughout the county where pride is still taken in both service and quality of food and entertainment.
