What cuisine is on offer at The Plough Inn?
With 2 AA rosettes and just being awarded 'County Dining pub 2020' the menu at The Plough Inn boast pub classics alongside the dishes youd expect from a 2 AA rosette restaurant with plenty of modern twists. Ingredients are sourced as locally as possible, and are always of the very best quality. Menus are changed to reflect the seasons, and there is a good range of daily specials on offer. The Sunday roast is a firm favourite and as quoted by James on November 2019 on Tripadvisor 'I have been in search of the perfect Sunday roast and I have to say I think the search is over.'
What is the signature dish at The Plough Inn?
Kentish rump of lamb, complimented with vegetables and potatoes to bring out all the flavours of the season, perfectly paired with a glass of GSM or a bottle of McManis.
What makes a meal at The Plough Inn unique?
From classics such as burgers and fish and chips to fine dining dishes, everything is prepared on-site by head chef, Richard, and his team. In the summer, guests can see out as far as the coast, and in the winter months, with two open fires the atmosphere is warm and cosy. The Plough Inn might only be small, but it has an extensive bar, including 16 wines by the glass, 45 wines in total, 26 gins (the landlady's tipple), 16 rums (the head chef's tipple), 18 whiskies and a great range of no/low alcoholic drinks for the designated driver!
Delighted to have been able to add 6 letting bedrooms to the pub - located in a seperate barn building close to the pub, you can still soak up the atmosphere of the pub and return to your quiet little haven. All 5 of the superior rooms are on the ground floor with ensuite facilities including a double ended bath and walk in shower. The upper floor boasts views out to the Kent coast line, a sofa (sofabed) and dinning area where you will be served breakfast. The master suite on the other hand is the other way up so the bedroom is upstairs with a dining & lounge area downstairs. The double ended bath has views out to the coast and your bedroom view when you wake is pure kent countryside!
