Our Restaurant

Welcome to The Forge House

Situated in the High Street of the picturesque village of Otford In the Darenth Valley just 100 yards from the only listed duck pond in the country, Forge House is itself a Grade II listed building.

Built in the 16th century, it was originally three one-up one down cottages situated next door to the Blacksmith on what was the main Pilgrims Way from London to Canterbury.

The former cottages were converted from a private house into tea-room in the 60’s,then became the Forge House Restaurant.

Low-beamed and retaining much of the original character, it is cosy and welcoming which contributes greatly towards a relaxed and intimate atmosphere.
