A warm welcome awaits at the Bonny Cravat - a traditional, family-friendly pub in the village of Woodchurch, near Ashford.

With three cosy fireplaces, two large bars, a separate dining area, a spacious garden and a great games room, it’s a place to really make yourself at home - whether you’re here for a great meal out or just a relaxing pint and a game of pool.

There’s plenty that’s unique about the Bonny Cravat - not least the name. For while nobody truly knows where it comes from (some say the pub was a meeting point for smugglers who traded with Frenchmen using a boat called La Bonne Curvette), the pub’s title is a genuine one-off in Britain.

The cellar has its own unique quirks too, with an old tunnel leading to the church opposite, dating back to the time of the Reformation.

Of course, the cellar is also where the Bonny Cravat’s beautiful beer is kept. A trio of top-class cask ales are available here, courtesy of Kentish brewer Shepherd Neame, while there’s also a wide variety of lagers, wines, spirits and more.

Drinks are served up alongside hearty, traditional pub food - and a Sunday carvery so good, it too can be described as one of a kind.
