The Kents is located in Wellswood, just a two-minute walk from the fascinating prehistoric Kents Cavern. This family-friendly venue is split into a cosy traditional bar, a relaxed dining area and a sheltered garden. This popular eatery offers visitors a menu bursting with hearty but modern pub classics. We opted to start with a couple of moreish, tapas-style dishes from the grazing menu, plumping for honey-roasted baby chorizo and homemade fishcakes. I followed with one of The Kents’ speciality gourmet burgers, the Truffle Shuffle – an indulgent combination of wild mushrooms, spinach and Stilton, topped with truffle mayonnaise and liberally sprinkled with crispy fried onions. My companion enjoyed the beer-battered haddock with chunky chips and buttered crushed peas. To top it all, they have the accolade of being in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

This establishment believes in the importance of quality and locally sourced produce, and you can taste the freshness. This top-notch pub has a fantastic selection of drinks – the comprehensive craft gin collection includes over 45 varieties, making this a haven for gin enthusiasts. We sampled the gin tasting board, which featured three different types: Bad Fagan’s Devon Gin, a citric-centric peppery gin; a sweet, tangy Tarquin’s rhubarb and raspberry gin; and Revenge Navy Gin, which packed a real punch. We completed our delightful meal with two sumptuous desserts – homemade Bakewell tart with crème anglaise, and creamy rhubarb and custard crème brûlée.
