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.

    No garlic chips. No bottled beer of my choice. Very slow service although very friendly. Nice surroundings. Vegan son would have gone hungry if he had been there.

    No jacket potatoes at noon yesterday.
    Waited 35 minutes for food. Veg pie cold in the middle. It was appalling.
    Been loads of time before had problems a couple of times now.
    Won't go again.

    It was not the worst dining experience I've ever had but neither was it the best.The staff were friendly and smart but the service was a bit slow and they had run out of sweet potato fries, (which I love), and orange juice; which my mother and I wanted! Food was ok but very plain and some of it lacked flavour. Also they recognise in their allergy info that, like me, people are intolerant to dairy, yet they do not provide a single dessert that we can eat? A simple sorbet would have done. Definitely had better experiences elsewhere.

    I booked this restaurant for my boss and her guest as it is the nearest decent eatery near our offices. My boss has used Poppy Fields on quite a number of occasions but although she was happy about the food she was very disappointed when ordering drinks. Her guest wanted a soda and lime and was told they didn't have any so she ordered two orange and lemonades. They then wanted to finish off the meal with a coffee only to be told that the machine had broken and they couldn't serve it! If my boss's guest was an internal person it wouldn't really have mattered as much but as this was an external professional, she felt rather embarrassed. Needless to say she has now asked me to find an alternative venue for such meetings. It is a shame as a lot of us have our occasional office lunches there and we have never been disappointed before.

    Have eaten at Poppyfields Maidstone many times but very disappointed on my visit yesterday. Ordered the gammon from the lunch menu but it was almost inedible. It was so salty that my friend had to decline hers and had to be brought a piece of chicken instead. I persevered with my gammon but it was not an enjoyable experience. I believe it to be the fault of the meat suppliers rather than the restaurant, but maybe it should be taken from the menu, or come with a warning until the problem is resolved. Really spoilt my lunchtime experience. I might also suggest they buy in some Diet Coke. Diet Pepsi is not to my taste, so had tap water instead.

    Meal took over an hour to arrive. It was cold and the bread was hard
