The Mount Vineyard – Shoreham

My three favourite things – Kent, food and wine.

This website seeks to bring these favourite things together, sharing with the wider world all of the best restaurants, food events and even places to stay in  this fabulous county I am always so grateful and relieved to call my home.

Whilst I will never claim to be a professional restaurant critic, I do understand good food and nothing pleases me more then finding somewhere really special to relax and have a decent meal – and Kent is blessed with so many of these places.

So relax, enjoy and plan the next place you are going to eat at in Kent
