Nestled in the Kent countryside, a few miles east of Canterbury, lies the hidden gem that is the Red Lion at Stodmarsh. This unique and quirky Country Inn continues to build upon its reputation for high quality food and outstanding customer service.

Next to Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve, The Red Lion is the perfect country pub to spend all and every occasion, whether a family Sunday lunch, a romantic dinner for two or a walkers’ drink by the fire. With a cellar of over 60 wines, and ever-changing local guest ales it is able to provide a tipple for all tastes and budgets. Seasonal menus vary depending on what is brought back from the market each morning, whether that is locally reared Romney Marsh Spring lamb or freshly caught Whitstable oysters.  With comfortable bedrooms and hearty breakfasts, this is the perfect place to stay for an idyllic experience of the Kent countryside.

The Bench is an exciting and innovative Wine Bar & Tapas Restaurant in Ramsgate, Kent’s beautiful harbour. With its stunning design and unique concept in wine service, it is the first of its kind in Kent and beyond.

With a cellar of over 48 wines, our beautiful wine dispensing machines allow you to sample every one of them by the glass at the perfect temperature.

We have worked hard to create an exclusive experience for the area and so all of our wines, as well as many of our delicious spirits, ales, beers and ciders are unique to us and can not be found on any other list locally. Our staff are passionate about what they do, and our welcoming and friendly customer service is second to none. Everyone that walks through the door is not only given the very best in food and drink, but also the very best service.
