The Dog at Wingham is an award-winning restaurant and bar with rooms. Having come under new ownership in October 2016, the family run Dog underwent a complete refurbishment and has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors from further afield. In its first year, The Dog at Wingham was awarded an AA Rosette, Four AA Silver Stars, won Kent Pub of the Year, was finalist in two categories in the Kent Food & Drink Awards and a finalist in the Kent Tourism Awards.


The original 1661 building is a mix of quirky and modern, and the welcoming atmosphere is complemented by oak beams, cosy fireplaces, and striped floorboards with stylish decor. There are two bar areas offering a selection of branded and craft beers, a gin bar with over 50 gins, and an excellent wine list. There is a main restaurant area and a second more private area for social gatherings and family Sunday roasts.


There are eight luxurious en-suite bedrooms, all having been refurbished and decorated to an extremely high standard by owner, Marilyn Bridgen. All rooms are individual, ooze style and boast an eye for detail throughout, with monsoon showers in each bathroom adding to the luxury.


The AA Rosette-awarded restaurant offers an ever-changing and exciting menu with plenty of choice for whatever mood you are in. It brims with local, seasonal offerings and is changed on a regular basis to keep it fresh. There are set price lunch menus, à la carte menus, Sunday roasts, tasting menus, and a monthly Dining Club offering special nights like ‘Game with Wine Pairing’, ‘Oyster & Crab’, ‘Spring Lamb Evenings’ and guest chefs.


There is an excellent and dedicated team of staff, from attentive waiters to passionate chefs and caring management; you’re sure to receive excellent service and attention from all at The Dog who are certainly setting the benchmark for quality food, attention to detail and superb value for money. For 2018, ‘The Dog’s Dinner’ with B&B package includes a drink on arrival, three-course à la carte meal, one night in one of their luxury rooms and a beautiful breakfast in the morning. Prices start from £149 per night for two guests. Be sure to book in soon!
