They try to present it nicely when its just standard food. Not very impressed. The staff were grumpy and kept forgetting our drinks. we had to ask for the... More

Called in today for midday meal as we were visiting friends in the area. The food and service were exellent and the desserts outstanding but I was very disapointed to be told that there was only one beer on and that was not one that I would have chosen, but for this it would have been five stars.

Description
Under new ownership since April 2015, The Goudhurst Inn is now part of Hush Heath Hospitality which also owns Hush Heath Estate & Winery among other venues. After a full refurbishment both inside and out, The Goudhurst Inn now offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, 7 days a week. We have also created 4 beautiful boutique hotel rooms with luxury and comfort in mind. Our menu features traditional pub classics as well as more elegant, refined dishes all made using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients The bar area offers a more relaxed dining environment while The Conservatory and The Hush Heath Room are that bit more formal with wonderful views of the Weald of Kent and a regularly changing A La Carte menu. We also offer a fixed price menu for lunch and dinner from Monday to Friday 12noon-3pm and Monday to Thursday 6pm-9.30pm inclusive. Outside, a large terrace and garden area offers a perfect place to enjoy pizza from our dedicated Pizza Shack which houses a professional wood-fired clay oven for really authentic pizza. Pizzas are available all day to eat in or take away. A kids menu is also available and often kids eat free on special promotional weekends. Breakfast is served in The Conservatory from 8am. The bar has an English Wine focus serving all the wines and ciders of Hush Heath Estate by the glass and bottle. We also have an enviable and eclectic wine and craft beer list from around the world as well as the best in spirits and whiskeys.
