Cranbrook Road, Goudhurst,
t: 01580 212605
The Goudhurst Inn, pub, restaurant and hotel is located in the picturesque village of Goudhurst in the heart of Kent. The historic building has always served as the village pub, but since undergoing a total refurbishment, both inside and out, now boasts ample outdoor seating with breath-taking views over the Weald of Kent, a children's play area, and an outdoor Pizza. The Hush Heath Room, the Conservatory, and the bar areas are cosy, yet luxurious and modern. Upstairs are four individually designed bedroom suites with en-suite bathrooms; all with 5* facilities.
Local suppliers are used wherever possible to create fresh, seasonal, British menus, featuring traditional pub favourites and elegant modern classics. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served seven days a week together with weekend brunch and Sunday Roasts.
Situated on Cranbrook Road in Goudhurst, the Goudhurst Inn is just a short drive away from the award-winning vineyard and winery, Hush Heath Estate. The Estate’s delicious wines and ciders are served in the bar and are also available from the Hush Heath wine table d’hote menu; this is a set menu where each course is expertly paired with a wine or cider from the Hush Heath Estate.
Menus and specials change regularly and special dietary requirements are catered for but please call ahead before visiting to arrange.
Restaurant dining is available in the Hush Heath Room and The Conservatory, both of which have doors opening out onto the terrace in the summer months. These rooms offer a more formal setting, with a refined A La Carte menu.
Launched in mid-summer 2015, The Pizza shack is situated on the terrace with stunning views over the Weald of Kent. Freshly baked pizzas are served using homemade dough which is baked to perfection in a clay oven.
Why not combine a visit to the Goudhurst Inn with a free self-guided tour of the Hush Heath Estate, or for groups of six or more consider booking onto one of their guided vineyard excursions which includes a walk through vineyards, apple orchards and ancient oak woodland with a wine expert before finishing in the winery itself where half an hour is spent learning about the sparkling winemaking process, made famous in Champagne. Each tour is rounded off with a tutored tasting of the Estate’s still and sparkling wines and ciders.
