From 1st August 2020 we will be operating as a Room Only establishment, offering bedrooms with self-check in and Zero face to face contact with staff or other guests.

We have made plans to re-open the hotel for business to serve our community and retain our fantastic core team of staff in the long term.

Of course, at the forefront of our minds is the health and well-being of our customers, community, staff team and their families.

We will do our best to keep our guests, employees, and our community safe whilst continuing to operate a place to stay safely and happily in comfort.

While the service offered will, of course, be limited initially it is hoped that in time necessary restrictions will be lifted and we will be able to offer an enhanced level of service.

We will continue to refine and update the plan as experts provide us more

There will be no bar or restaurant facilities available for guests or public use until further guidance from government.



So, you’ve probably heard that we love to #KeepitKent here?

It’s true! We really do love to look close to home for inspiration.

The kitchen team love to be playful and go with the flow when it comes to what they produce, using the best of what’s local, in season and all that’s simple, fresh, tasty, wholesome and occasionally a little naughty.

Our fish and shellfish comes from local day boats at Deal, Whitstable, Folkestone or straight off the beach at St. Margaret’s Bay.

Our meat is carefully sourced from local farms and vegetables where possible are farmed locally or foraged from the wild.

Chef Andrew has a bit of a sweet tooth, he is an expert at making lovely puddings from seasonal fruit and making home-made ice cream is one of his passions.

We have a certain pedigree… The kitchen team work under the watchful eye of owner, retired Michelin-Starred Chef Chris Oakley formerly a head chef with the highly acclaimed Roux Brothers. After spending over half a century in kitchens Chris’s guiding hand has helped steer the focus to the simplicity of the ingredients treated with reverence and a light touch.

The welcome is warm, the place is run by the second and third generation of the Oakley family and the crew are locals with a passion for all that is native to Kent.

And to drink… Well there’s a raft of carefully selected beers & ciders on tap from around Kent alongside a great list of wines from near and far, a dozen fabulously wicked gins, fine old rums and much more.


The Kitchen is at the heart of the bunkhouse and makes a great place to eat with an overnight stay in one of the collection of 16th century buildings that house boutique ensuite bedrooms, apartments and a penthouse Loft suite.
