The Wife of Bath, Hastingleigh

First opened as a restaurant in 1962 this historic Grade 2 listed building has long been regarded as one of the finest food destinations in Kent.

Upon acquiring the business in 2016 the restaurant and rooms have undergone full renovation, breathing new life into the premises whilst retaining the traditional charm that underpins this quintessential Kentish location.

Named after one of the characters in Geoffrey Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales', who supposedly visited Wye as one of the last resting places before arriving in the historic City of Canterbury, both the building and the surrounding area are steeped in history. The building itself does not date back quite that far but it still retains many of the original Victorian features from the period it was built that lend it it's charm and individuality.

All five rooms have been furnished to the highest possible standard offering comfort and individuality in equal measure.

Traditional oak beams and sash windows are contrasted with top of the range Nespresso machines and flat screen TV's, while all beds are dressed in the best Egyptian cotton. Each room boasts access to our unique pantry areas for once the restaurant and bar areas have closed.

The restaurant serves English and European inspired menus, utilising the stunning local produce available to us on our doorstep.
