The Sports­man, Seasalter, Whit­stable, Kent An inn men­tioned in 1642 on land that be­longed to the kitchens of Can­ter­bury Cathe­dral in the 11th cen­tury, this place was farmed by me­dieval monks and vis­ited by pil­grims. Meat and game still come from the sur­round­ing woods and marsh­land and fruit and veg from the kitchen gar­den. Tom Parker Bowles says this ‘charm­ingly ram­shackle place with its back to the Thames Es­tu­ary is no or­di­nary pub’ and it won the Na­tional Restau­rant Award 2016. How to get there Take the old coast road be­tween Whit­stable and Faver­sham and, as you ap­proach the sea wall, turn left af­ter a row of huts Re­mote­ness rat­ing 4 (01227 273370; thes­ports­man­seasalter.co.uk)
