Review on Froggies at the Timber Batts

'An excellent find,' raved one Mobile Food Guide user after negotiating the network of narrow country lanes that leads to Froggies at the Timber Batts - a truly delightful country pub/restaurant in the lovely Kent countryside.

A warm feeling of friendly hospitality immediately hits you as you enter the cosy red-brick and low-beamed fifteenth-century building. Menus are chalked up on blackboards and the choice varies from day to day. Ingredients - from seasonal game to Romney Marsh lamb - are sourced locally where possible and the kitchen deals in traditional French cuisine with plenty of long-term favourites including superb stuffed mussels, confit of duck salad, rack of lamb with herbs, and fillet of beef with Roquefort sauce (a signature dish).

A separate slate of desserts promises even more comforting delights in the shape of profiteroles, tarte Tatin and Froggies crème brûlée special (six different fruits plus a sorbet). To go with the food is a quality list of French wines (the house wine is actually grown and produced by Joel Gross's cousin in the Loire Valley).

If you want to indulge in a bit more Gallic atmosphere, don't miss the French market that is held outside Froggies on the last Sunday of each month.

    happy day

    Found this by chance after a cider tour down the road, just went in for lunch and wow! I didn't realize at first it was French , which is my favourite so had a real treat, unfortunately its 60 miles from where I live but I will definitely be making the trip back
