Review on Three Chimneys

Eagle-eyed visitors will notice that this renowned 400-year-old pub near Biddenden called Three Chimneys, actually only has two chimneys. Its name is a corruption of the French 'trois chemins' (three roads) – a local junction that marked the limit allowed for French soldiers to walk when imprisoned in Sissinghurst Castle during the Seven Years' War.

This is a country pub with great virtues and great character. The interior is a maze of tiny low-ceilinged rooms with open fires, weathered brick floors and hop-garlanded beams. Top-notch real ales are tapped direct from the cask and imbibers might also find locally brewed cider as well as tipples from Kentish vineyards.

The blackboard menu covers a lot of ground, encompassing everything from Thai crab cakes with sweet chilli sauce to confit of duck with braised Puy lentils, chorizo and bacon. In between, you might spot curried parsnip soup, loin of venison with braised red cabbage and port jus, and fillets of sea bass with a chowder of sweet potatoes, coconut and coriander, as well as desserts such as vanilla and strawberry crème brûlée or chocolate and praline torte with pistachio ice cream.

    Average food; overpriced

    Stopped for a quick lunch and ordered two beers, two ham ploughman's with two side orders of chips; total cost £33.10! There was no advertised price for the ploughman's on the menu board but I did find the side order of chips on-line, £3.50 each !! (skinny fries). Service was great, nothing to write home about the food though, less than average I'm afraid and way overpriced. If I want skinny fries I'll go to McDonalds next time.
