Food and Drink

Michelin-starred restaurants, world-class wineries, tangy cider and classically-brewed beer - Kent overflows with fine things to eat and drink.         

In Kent, people are never short of ideas for what to make for dinner, or what to drink with it. Fabulous locally produced food includes just-caught fish, superb oysters, tender Romney Marsh lamb, sweet soft fruit, tangy apples. Wash it down with locally-made wine, a crisp cider or a zesty beer.           

From sleek Michelin-starred restaurants to characterful eateries graced by log fires or stunning sea views, Kent has incredible places to eat and drink - with everything from fine dining to great pub grub. Farmers showcase their wares at countless markets across the county, or visit during a food festival where excellent produce comes with tastings, cooking demos, workshops and art events too. 

And whenever you come, look out for the Kent Breakfast symbol, so you can enjoy a tasty, locally-sourced start to the day.
