The Mulberry Tree
Hermitage Lane, Boughton Monchelsea, ME17 4DA
Since opening, The Mulberry Tree has attained a medley of accolades. It was named Kent Restaurant of the Year two years running, and has held two AA rosettes and featured in The Michelin Guide since opening. Most recently, the restaurant was a finalist in the Taste of Kent Awards, testament to the high standards that the team at The Mulberry Tree maintains. These high standards are found in everything from the efficient service to the delicious food. Free-range and organic produce is sourced from local suppliers, to create dishes that are delicious but don’t break the bank. The menu changes regularly to make the most of the ingredients available, though there’s also a set lunch menu available from Tuesday to Saturday and an evening option running Tuesday to Friday. Tempting courses might include confit duck leg paired with mash and red cabbage and drizzled in red wine jus, and wild mushroom and goat’s cheese filo parcel accompanied by buttered leeks, sautéed potatoes and moreish pesto cream. The extensive wine list complements the à la carte perfectly, offering diners a range of New World varieties from lesser-known vineyards as well as more established options, with the vast majority available by the glass. If wine doesn’t tickle your fancy, The Mulberry Tree also serves draught and bottled beer, and local soft drinks.
