A family-friendly country pub in Maidstone, Poppy Fields offers a contemporary gastro-pub menu alongside silky Marston’s cask ales. Succulent rotisserie chicken stars on Poppy Fields’ diverse, easy-dining menu.

Juicy rotisserie chicken joins 14-hour slow cooked ribs and other pub favourites on the Poppy Fields menu. ‘Rotisserie Ruby’ curry options incorporate the very same, sumptuous chicken into lively Indian recipes, while indulgent gourmet burgers and flame-grilled steaks are meaty companions for nutritious fish dishes, light wraps and salads.

A fun and accessible ‘Little Monsters’ menu at the Poppy Fields restaurant in Maidstone provides wholesome options for little diners, with indoor and outdoor play areas for added entertainment. For adults, there’s a comprehensive drinks selection, including an enticing line-up of ‘saints and sinners’, among which fresh and light cocktails contend with rich, decadent options.

Poppy Fields takes its name from the stunning crimson fields in the local area, and is in the picturesque village of Allington.

    My friend and I have enjoyed the visits we have made to Poppyfields. Neither of us has a big appetite and we do appreciate the fact that we can have a child's portion which is more than enough for us. It also means that we sometimes have room for a dessert!!
    Unfortunately we can only go to Poppyfields when friends take us as we no longer drive and there isn't public transport available,
    When we are invited out by friends with cars we usually recommend Poppyfields. The staff are always very welcoming and give excellent service.

    We arrived at 8pm our starters came at 8.20 five minutes later we were asked if we wanted a dessert menu to which we replied that we hadn't had our main course at 9.30 our main course arrived . Steak was asked for rare but when it came is was well done, lettuce in salad was brown. We complained to the manager who apologised saying it was a human error, we were with friends and because I made the booking I felt totally embarassed and disappointed.

    The place is lovely and staff were good but no impressed by the food at all . We ordered drinks and they came then we ordered the food taking into account it was fairly busy our food was served almost straight away - Fish and chips which I think had been pre - overcooked as was dry and chewy warm chips not very good . Dessert was nice but a very small amount of custard and it was just warm .

    The place is lovely but not enough staff on, parts of my food were cold, but so busy no one to ask, had to get our own drinks at the bar, had to find someone to take our food order, it's a shame because I really like the place but needs improvement, second time now my food has been cold,
    I won't be going back any time soon unless changes are made.??????

    Great meal and a good choice. Mum walks with a Zimmer frame and I have asked for a table where we could park the frame so it was accessible, was not a tripping hazard for others. Good table, not poked away in corner and excellent service.

    We were very disappointed with our meal and will not go there again. My mother had chicken and fries, I had ham egg and fries and my husband had me X tiger tops. My husband meal was not value for money, the lettuce on his plate was not fresh, it was wilted and did not look at all appetising. My ham was very nice, however the fires had been warmed and were not fresh, my egg still had raw albumin around the yolk. My mothers fries were the same as mine not fresh and her veg was over cooked.we had food at 13.45 so not that late to expect warmed up food and wilted lettuce.
    Not impressed.
