It was the price of hops that made Lamberhurst a Kent - rather than a Sussex – village, as hops were gaining a better price in Kent so the business-minded people of Lamberhurst decided to pay their rates there too.

Now the town is equally well known for its vineyard, which comprises 32 acres of prize-winning grapes in the middle of the rolling Kent countryside. Located next door is the seventeenth century Vineyard pub and restaurant, which has recently been refurbished and features a mural recounting the story of wine making. Traditional English and French brasserie-style food is available, as well as a highly respectable wine list.

Foodies will also to be interested to hear of the Lamberhurst Farmers’ Market, which takes place on the third Wednesday of every month in the Memorial Hall and brings quality regional product to the village and supports local businesses.  Stalls feature everything from home-made beer and ginger beer to plants, fruit and vegetables, artisan cheeses, fish and meat, while a café is also onsite.
