Restaurants in Kent

Restaurants in Kent: a view of the southeast

Kent is a verdant county in the very southeast of England. It shares a northwest border with Greater London, a western border with Essex, and Surrey to the west. One of the warmest parts of Great Britain, Kent’s climate is perfect for growing fruit, hazelnuts and many other agricultural products. It’s also Britain’s top hop producing region, and the Kent countryside is dotted with the conical hop kilns known as oast houses, where green hops are dried before being used in beer brewing. Naturally, produce from this region, colloquially known as the Garden of England, makes its way into the kitchens of most restaurants in Kent. The hops make it into the cellars of the alehouses, too. With such abundance at their doorsteps, it’s no surprise that the best restaurants in Kent endorse local, seasonal produce.
