High Street, Goudhurst, TN17 1AL
If a visit to the old spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is in your plans, The Star & Eagle on nearby Goudhurst's High Street would make an ideal port of call. Its 14th-century origins are evident in vaulted stonework that suggests this rambling, big-beamed building may once have been a monastery; in the 18th century it was a base for the infamous Hawkhurst Gang.

Harveys, Wychwood Hobgoblin and a guest ale are always on offer, and a good selection of wine is served by the glass. While quaffing, unwind and enjoy choosing between traditional British and Continental dishes prepared by head chef Scott Smith and his team, under the watchful eyes of proprietors Karin and Enrique Martinez. Tapas-style starters such as deep-fried whitebait sprinkled with Spanish paprika, or large pan-fried Portuguese sardines can be served in large portions for sharing. The blackboard displays daily specials, or look to the house specialities for the likes of roast guinea fowl with Chantenay carrots, bubble and squeak, orange and ginger sauce. For fish lovers, the lemon sole with prawn and lemon butter sauce is a popular choice. Desserts include English favourites: apple and blackberry crumble and sticky toffee sponge pudding are both served with vanilla custard, or choose a selection of Kentish cheeses served with grapes and chutney.

Standing 400 feet above sea level, The Star & Eagle's breathtaking views survey the orchards and hop fields that have led Kent to be known as the Garden of England
