Street End, Lower Hardres, Canterbury (Nr.), Kent, CT4 7AL
Although still a proper ‘local’, this pub is run by the same team who have the Sportsman at Whitstable (q.v.) – and is worth a detour if wishing to eat in the area. 

You’ll find wooden farmhouse-style tables and their food offerings displayed on a blackboard; and while the cooking might be called ‘homely’ in presentation, not many people eat at home at quite this standard – even their excellent home-made breads are not to be missed. 

Expect the likes of ‘Smoked Mackerel with Potato Salad and Horseradish’; ‘Locally Smoked Widgeon Breast with Herb Salad and Mustard Fruits’ and ‘A plate of Bresaola’ (thinly-sliced cured beef) to begin.  Maybe ‘Crispy Duck with Sour Cream and Chili Sauce’; ‘Pork Belly with Crackling & Apple Sauce’ or ‘Gilt-Head Bream with Rosemary and Garlic’ or seasonal game for something more substantial. 

Desserts include ‘Crème Brulée’; ‘Tart Tatin’, home-made sorbets and the like.
