MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

It’s long been about food at this wind-blown spot by the sea wall of the Thames Estuary, which has hosted an inn since the 17C and farmland since the 12C. True, it might look like a pub with its traditional furnishings, wood panelling and tiled floor – and you can still drop by just for a pint as many regulars do – but the main draw here is the cooking, and what cooking it is. It’s run by Stephen and Philip Harris – with Stephen overseeing the kitchen and Philip manning the bar – and comes complete with brightly painted bedroom cabins in the garden. Top local ingredients including fish from the Thames Estuary and vegetables from the kitchen garden make up the core of the menu, which is chalked up on the blackboard. Carefully prepared, confidently executed dishes follow a ‘less is more’ philosophy, relying on just a few ingredients and their natural flavours to impress. Choose the 5 course daily tasting menu or ask to extend it to 9 courses when you book.
