Dirty Habit

I want to tell you about my Dirty Habit experience.  No not that kind of Dirty Habit!  The Dirty Habit.

The Dirty Habit is a gorgeous 11th century pub in the picturesque village of Hollingbourne

in Kent.  I’d had it recommended to me by a foodie friend and was dying to give it a go! 

The opportunity presented itself last Friday. The sun was shining, I had a day off work, what better way to spend the day…..so off we went!

I was enchanted with Hollingbourne itself.  It has a very olde worlde charm with glorious chocolate box cottages.  Hubby described it as a typical old Kent village and he was absolutely right.

I’m pleased to report that the Dirty Habit didn’t disappoint.  It is beautiful inside with lots of beams and a lovely beer garden.  We opted to sit indoors by the open door. The staff were friendly and attentive.  Not too much attention, just the right amount. I thought it was good value for money too.  3 courses each and a bill in the region of £70.  We only had soft drinks  but we had a couple each.

I was surprised to find that The Dirty Habit was part of a chain but that said, I can’t wait to try the rest of the pubs in the chain!  Watch this space!!
