Larkfield Priory Hotel
Just a few miles east of Maidstone, surrounded by countryside, you can completely unwind here. The beautiful 19th-century Larkfield Priory Hotel boasts stylish rooms and a restaurant that produces delicious food. The hotel has recently been refurbished and boasts stunning countryside views. The restaurant’s Sunday roast is hard to beat, with an offering of top-notch meat with all the trimmings. From the à la carte menu, we started with Portobello mushroom stuffed with smoked bacon and Cheddar. The burgers are reasonably priced and are served with chips and coleslaw. El Pablo is especially popular: this spicy burger is topped with jalapeños, cheese and onions. For dessert, try the rich Belgian waffles with toffee sauce, vanilla ice cream and strawberries. The fully stocked bar showcases draught lager, guest ale and a variety of spirits, making Larkfield a great place to host a party or wedding too. The lounge menu is available seven days a week from noon until 9pm.
