A refurbished gastro pub in the historical village of Eynsford, The Plough Inn serves a selection of modern British dishes. With sheepskin-covered chairs, exposed stone walls & leather armchairs, the bar & restaurant provide plenty of cosy corners to enjoy a drink or a hearty meal.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Plough Inn menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Plough Inn bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Plough Inn in Kent is a 3-minute drive from Lullingstone Castle & World Garden, a 9-minute walk from Eynsford Castle, and a 10-minute walk from Eynsford Rail Station.

    Friendly service and delicious food. Not everything on the menu was on offer which was a shame but still plenty to choose from.

    Good service, excellent food and a really good children's menu and willingness to accommodate children's strange food requests.

    The restuarant is small and cosy and the furs on the chairs adds a very warm feeling to the ambience. The food was well presented, staff attentive and provided a good service.

    I had the lamb with beetroot as main course, which was lovely. My friend had the chicken and also enjoyed that.

    Would definitely go there again.

    I'm afraid to say the visit was deplorable... I really am sorry to say that everything that occurred on Saturday afternoon/ night was awful. My family and I catch up 4 times a year with all of the children & we book nights like this weeks in advance.

    We arrived promptly at 4:30 for our table but were advised that our table was not ready, which initially was acceptable.

    We were then seated at 4:50 and waited a noticeable while for our drinks order to be taken, so long in fact that we ordered our mains at the same time. The children's meals came out again, after a noticeable while. We had to ask for the drinks (forgotten) & then add more to it as others had been finished. The children were finished before we realised that the adult meals were still not delivered. At that point, enough was enough. I spoke to management who advised they were ready & would come up shortly. He advised the children's meals always go through with starters (of which we didn't have) so I didn't buy that excuse.

    Two meals were cold, we were nearly delayed for the firework show. They offered to cook two more meals but at 5:50 we simply didn't have time. Finally, our waitress came over eating & asked to borrow our ketchup!! (Must have been on a break - before our meals were delivered) The whole slate was wiped and we won't be returning. Such a shame as it wasn't even busy (by that I mean many tables were still free)

    Beautiful pub, gorgeous fire but no management!
