More than 100 people attended the official opening of The Kentish Hare, Bidborough’s new pub and restaurant. The evening provided a chance to meet Chris and James Tanner, the renowned chefs behind the pub, owners and local residents Sir Keith and Lady Maureen Mills, head chef Sam Spratt and general manager Melvyn Strange. Lady Mills pulled the first pint for competition winner Gary Thorne, before guests were invited to explore the new restaurant, bars, terrace and landscaped garden. The pub will serve the finest local produce and real ales, alongside a selection of wines served by the glass and carafe.
