Seafood
Whilst we specialise in award-winning seafood there’s plenty of choice for non seafood lovers. Most recently we've introduced the Bistro menu. These one plate meals add a delicious versatility to the offering and were designed to cater for fans of traditional 'Pub food', stews, casseroles and pies.


We love a culinary challege. Let us know what your needs are, with enough warning we can plan and shop for the ingredients to create your special meal.

    Yet another wonderful meal at the Dering Arms! The food, service and ambience are second to none and I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Worth a drive to get there or take a train like me if you can as it is literally almost inside Pluckley station.

    We are out of towners to this place but unlike other country pubs we were made to feel welcome The food was absolutely outstanding, probably the best we’ve had. Our homemade gin and tonic was very good as well ( shame I was driving). Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

    We did not feel rushed or overcrowded. Food was good, service friendly but inexperienced. No vegetarian option

    Excellent seafood served in wonderful surroundings. Food: Sardines followed by an enormous Lemon Sole. Chorizo followed by Tuna Steak. Everything beautifully cooked and served without any fuss. An excellent venue for my wife's birthday lunch.

    Understated, welcoming and deceptively good cooking awaits you at The Dering Arms. A particular strength is their 'specials' board laden with fish dishes. And there is a very practised hand in the kitchen that certainly knows how to honour the best that halibut, sea bass, bream, crab and so on have to offer. Very good; very hidden away; very worthwhile seeking out. PerM
