In The Sportsman you will find a dining pub of near-impeccable reputation. Nurtured lovingly by Chef Stephen Harris, it has become the apple in the eye of foodies far and wide. 

The menu is sheer, unapologetic brilliance. The chef has claimed that he can see nearly everything he cooks from the window; and indeed what graces the plate is just-foraged fruits of woods and sea. This is a place to savour, set in the mouth of the Thames estuary, suffused with the light of the sea at its back and filled with the flavours of Kent's age-old seafaring traditions.
