Gather up ye families of Kennett and Silvester and let’s have a Hey Nonny Noo and go exploring in the country-side.
Off to The Plough, a beautiful place, built just outside Teynham, Kent in 1350. That’s not too bad is it – two trips in 2 weeks to two pubs nearly 700 years old a piece!
Apparently the original building is from 1260, with the pub finally taking shape in 1350. It’s one of those beauties with huge fireplaces, beams, dried hops and clearly a lot of history. I heard that it has some popular folklore that a man once shoed his horse actually at the bar – go figure, beats changing a flat tyre I suppose!
Did we need the fireplace today though? No not at all. We were sat at the front, table for 11 under the welcoming shade of a huge walnut tree. Oh yes!
Here she is!
