Review on The Three Mariners

An atmospheric setting down among the salt marshes, creeks and boats in Oare a little village not far from Faversham, the Three Mariners still clings to its seventeenth-century roots. Genuine Kentish hospitality is the order of the day, with Shepherd Neame ales on tap and a menu of no-frills British food based on good local ingredients.

Fish from the local day boats is a strong suit, and the kitchen makes the most of the catch for dishes along the lines of skate cheeks with lemon, garlic and parsley, fillets of red mullet with a herb dressing, roast peppers and Pink Fir potatoes - plus easy items like herring roes on toast.

Otherwise, the menu trawls its way through chicken liver parfait with spicy onion relish, herb-crusted rump of lamb, and braised oxtail with ceps and red wine (served with champ). There are some decent cheeses on show, in addition to no-nonsense desserts such as autumn fruit crumble with clotted cream and Valrhona chocolate, prune and Armagnac cake with espresso ice cream. There's plenty of good drinking by the glass on the well-spread list.

    Fabulous Restaurant

    Anyone who terms this a gastropub doesn't know what they are talking about. There is an excellent choice of food, well cooked and well served. I have eaten here six times and never a bad experience. I introduced my family to it and they were impressed too. I have had better experiences here than at a nearby restaurant with a Michelin star! I would recommend it to anyone.
