The Fitzwalter Arms is the hub of village life, attracting both locals and tourists visiting the gardens of neighbouring Godmersham Park, while its no-nonsense simplicity extends to a rustic daily menu that seldom misses a beat. With around five dishes per course, each usually a demonstration of loyalty to fresh local produce, the food is rough round the edges – nothing fey – but cooked with intelligence and care.

Brawn with parsley, red onion and caper salad, for example, then black bream fillet with squid and gremolada, are appealing choices, or there could be a richly flavoured, traditional coq au vin, locally reared pork or seasonal game. Treacle tart and raw Jersey cream makes a good finish. House wine is £11.95.
