Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Wheatsheaf at Bough Beech is an independent pub and restaurant serving freshly made, inspiring dishes created by chef David Fuller and his talented team. Situated on the edge of the High Weald in west Kent, a stone’s throw from Bough Beech reservoir and just five minutes’ drive from Hever Castle, The Wheatsheaf was once a hunting lodge rumoured to have been a much-loved retreat for King Henry VIII. It’s still a firm local favourite today – but don’t just take our word for it, go along and find out why.
Known for its beautifully presented, locally sourced food and a fine selection of wine and real ale, The Wheatsheaf is a cosy haven in the winter with roaring log fires, and in the summer you can soak up the sun in the beautiful garden. The menus take inspiration from seasonal ingredients grown in The Wheatsheaf’s own kitchen garden, along with the finest regional specialities from trusted local suppliers to create original dishes that are full of flavour.
Restored to its period glory back in 2014, The Wheatsheaf boasts splendid original features, such as exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace – a real treat for history lovers. Visit soon to explore its cosy corners and unexpected alcoves, and unwind in majestic style, just as Henry VIII would have done 500 years ago. Cyclists, horse riders, walkers and dogs are all welcome, and with plenty of parking available there’s every reason to visit – so what are you waiting for?
