Set back from the road and tucked between the cottages of the sleepy village of Rolvenden Layne, the Ewe and Lamb doesn't make a song and dance about itself - then again, it doesn't need to. As you enter, you'll be greeted with the warmth and homely smells of a log fire. The gentle chatter from the locals at the bar and the genuinely friendly welcome from the staff set the atmosphere gently buzzing.

To look around the Ewe and Lamb is to see provincial France and rustic England seamlessly combined to create a warm and homely feel. In the restaurant area one of the large dining tables is flanked by an old church pew, and on the wall beside the inglenook fireplace there is a bookshelf crammed with old hymn books. For those interested in the brewing side of things there are numerous curios dotted about the place - sure to arouse your interest.

The menu offers a whole range of classic dishes including mussels, baked Camembert and Welsh rarebit to start, followed by a tasty selection of mains; choose from a variety of steaks and homemade pies as well as more rustic dishes like venison and game. The homemade cream of cauliflower soup was excellent, with its powerful flavour and subtle blend of spices. The tempura prawns with a twist of lime prepared the tastebuds perfectly for the main course - tender guinea foul cooked in a dash of Chinese spices, surrounded by Puy lentils and poached pears. The melt-in-the-mouth chocolate tart and the dangerously tempting treacle tart were just too hard to resist, and ended the meal on a high note.

Complete your evening with a quiet drink at the bar or relax at your table in the comfortable country-style restaurant before stepping out into the peaceful village again; the uninterrupted glimpse of the stars above is the icing on the cake.
