The inns and outs

Special place, special times

If you’ve walked below our dragon tie beams, sat in our cosy nooks, or warmed your hands on our open log fire, you’ll know that The Plough is a truly special place. It’s a traditional independent inn – an genuine grade II listed medieval Wealden Hall house – that’s been lovingly preserved for decades. Even better, that traditional warm Kentish welcome is still very much intact, too.

Popular with films crews for offering a quintessentially English setting – you might recognise us from The Darling Buds of May – we’re a venue where history meets the best in modern hospitality. Our dining area wraps around the bar to provide an authentic English inn experience, and you’ll also find quiet corners if you fancy hiding away like the smugglers who passed through in times of old.

Introducing your hosts, Richard and Marianne

The Plough Inn is owned and run by chef-patron Richard and professional hotelier Marianne. They have over thirty years’ combined experience in hospitality and, perhaps unsurprisingly, they’re both self-confessed foodies.

Richard has spent much of his life cheffing in the South East, whilst Marianne has worked for over a decade in hotel operations. A one-time finalist in the prized Savoy Gastronomes Olive Barnett Award and past Acorn winner, Marianne strongly believes in supporting local suppliers – a philosophy shared by her husband.

Together, Richard and Marianne have made The Plough a place where you can eat, drink and make merry whether you’re a visiting couple, family, or group marking a special occasion. So come and enjoy some fabulous food, delightful drinks, and leave your troubles far, far, behind. Cheers.
