High Street, Hythe, CT21 5JU

Occupying a prime spot on Hythe’s High Street is Wells, a calm oasis in the town’s busy thoroughfare. The building is Grade II listed and dates back to 1620, with beamed ceilings and uneven flooring adding to the venue’s charm. 

In the candlelit restaurant you’ll find a baby grand piano, as well as a diverse menu. Delicious starters include Southern-fried chicken goujons accompanied by a spicy dip, meze options like hummus and olives, and the highly popular crispy whitebait paired with tartare sauce. The selection of mains is just as tempting, and includes a great range of burgers, seafood and grilled meats. If you fancy a burger, we recommend the vegetarian option, which comprises beetroot, butternut squash, potato and goat’s cheese in breadcrumbs. However, if you’re a fan of chicken then the chicken burger – breaded chicken encased in a brioche bun and served alongside onion rings, salad and house fries – is the meal for you. Those having difficulty choosing between the fish and the grill will be pleased to hear that Wells serves an excellent surf and turf. On Sunday, the restaurant offers a traditional roast that has gained a following of its own, so booking is recommended. The accompanying drinks offering encompasses craft beer, ale, wine and an array of spirits. Why not plump for something a bit different and go for the sticky toffee pudding beer, or perhaps the intriguingly named Waggle Dance? 

Outside there’s a spacious south-facing garden, from where you can see the venue’s original catslide roof – one of only three left in Hythe. Here, visitors can dine al fresco, or simply relax with a glass of wine from the extensive selection. 

Wells is the ideal spot if you’re looking to host a special event, and can cater for private functions and even weddings of up to 30 for seated guests and 50 for a buffet. Get in touch with the experienced team to discuss your requirements.
