Having opened under new management in December 2017, The Fordwich Arms has already received huge praise from both locals and visitors alike. The stunning Georgian building lies at the heart of Fordwich and the new owners have revamped the menu, the decor and the dog-friendly garden while keeping most of the traditional features. With two log fireplaces either side of the bar, the warm setting is welcoming. Fordwich is Britain’s smallest town yet Fordwich Arms is set to be a massive success. Head chef Dan Smith, his partner Tash Norton and sommelier Guy Palmer-Brown are joint owners of this new Kent venture, whose offering of modern food in an historic building is proving a hit.

The menu changes regularly allowing Dan to produce innovative dishes to feature on the tasting menu and à la carte. Every dish that comes out of the kitchen is intricate and attentively presented. You can expect to find five or six dishes on the tasting menu, which might feature the likes of smoked trout, Jerusalem artichoke and red grape to begin, followed by an optional course of hand-dived Cornish scallops with bacon and shallot, and Stour Valley pheasant dumpling paired with roasted onion and a herb broth. The next course might feature roast suckling pig with carrots and prunes drizzled in sherry, and a salted milk chocolate and caramel bar with crème fraîche to finish. Take your tastebuds on a tantalising journey – the tasting menu starts at just £65.

The Fordwich Arms is not your average pub serving typical food. By retaining the classic pub features and offering an evolving menu that’s hard to beat, the team offers immaculate food in a comfortable and friendly environment. The wine selection has been carefully fashioned and the well-stocked bar has something to suit every diner’s taste. Whether you’re local to Fordwich or not, the journey to this lovely eatery is more than worth it.
