Takeaway from The Kentish Hare

The Kentish Hare is an award-winning restaurant with two AA Rosettes and was awarded with a Bib Gourmand by the highly respected Michelin guide in 2021. More recently we were placed 13th in the Estrella Damm Top 50 GastroPubs awards, which was a huge climb from #28 in 2020. We are situated in the picturesque Kent village of Bidborough and opened in May 2014 with the Tanner Brothers, James and Chris at the helm. The Tanner brothers have assembled a great professional team focusing on delivering the best of local food and complemented by a specially selected range of superb wines, beers and spirits.
