04 Go for a posh pub lunch

Esquire (UK) - - Style -

Ford­wich, one of Bri­tain’s small­est towns (with a pop­u­la­tion of around 400), has just gained a Miche­lin star thanks to award-win­ning for­mer Clove Club chef Daniel Smith, his pas­try-chef wife Natasha Nor­ton-Smith and som­me­lier Guy Palmer-Brown. Why did they choose to bring fine din­ing to some back­wa­ter pub just out­side Can­ter­bury? Who cares? The Kent lo­cale of­fers an idyl­lic coun­try walk be­fore or af­ter eat­ing. Com­pli­men­tary amuse-bouches pre­cede sump­tu­ous plates like Sevenoaks veni­son with dam­son, the roar­ing fire, wood-pan­elling and dog-friendly vibe cap­ping any win­ter week­end.

Lunch is served: veni­son, cele­riac, dam­son and smoked bone mar­row at The Ford­wich Arms, Kent
