Pub of the Week: The Walnut Tree, Aldington

Posted: 11th October 2017

The Walnut Tree is an historic pub in the village of Aldington. Built during the reign of Richard II, the pub, which would have started life as a modest wattle and daub hut, retains many period features, including oak beams and an inglenook fireplace.

Today, the pub is known for its excellent home-cooked food, including a popular Sunday roast, and for their famous ‘sizzling grillstones’. This ancient cooking method involves cooking meat on hot stones on the tables, to your liking. In addition, the menu offers a range of classic British dishes, plus vegetarian options, bar snacks, a children’s menu, and daily specials.

To accompany your meal, enjoy a pint of cask ale, or something from the wine list. The Walnut Tree is well known locally for its very affordable prices, with weekday lunches for just £4.95, and Sunday roasts from £6.95 up to £9.95 for the very generous ‘Kingsize’ option.

Inside the pub has a comfortable bar, and separate restaurant.  Outside to the rear you’ll find a large, family friendly beer garden, and ample parking. The pub overlooks the village green.

There’s a quiz night on the last Sunday of the month, free wi-fi, and BT Sport on TV in the recently refurbished Sports Bar, complete with cosy log burner.

They are now taking bookings for Christmas.
