The charming market town of Westerham nestles in the River Darent valley in the middle of some of Kent's most beautiful countryside. Between the High Weald and Surrey Hills, the town also has excellent connections to the M25 and London, making it popular with visitors and commuters alike. Excellent produce abounds in the Garden of England, and the town also has its very own brewery and vineyard to wash it all down. There has been a settlement here since Roman times and a Celtic fortification has been discovered that dates from 2000 BC. With such historical and natural attractions it's no wonder that the town is so popular and restaurants in Westerham serve a large number of visitors along with the lucky locals.
As one of the richest agricultural counties of England, Kent has an enviable supply of fine local ingredients. These include the famous Kentish cobnut, a variety of hazelnut that finds its way into many regional dishes. Kentish pudding pie is another well-known local delicacy, featuring a rich filling of raisins soaked in sherry. Salt marsh lamb from Romney Marshes is succulent and full of flavour, while Whitstable oysters and Dover sole are just two examples of the excellent seafood from the English Channel. With an abundance of fruit from local orchards, Westerham restaurants have one of the best local larders in the country.
The combination of London commuters and lots of visitors has resulted in a cosmopolitan atmosphere in Westerham, with restaurants offering a huge range of dishes. Take Da Peppino, for example. This top-notch Italian has been delighting diners for 25 years. Its recipe for success is classic Italian food cooked with skill and care, along with friendly and attentive service. Cotoletta alla Milanese (pan-fried escalopes of veal served with spaghetti arrabbiata) is just one delicious dish on the menu you really should keep an eye out for.
