Murphy went for lunch in July 2017. We parked in the square in front of the pub in this beautiful Kentish village. Elham is one of the unspoilt spots in Kent’s countryside and boasts many historic buildings. The square has an information board with a map of The Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty. Murphy went for a walk along The Elham Valley Way (leave the square along Duck Street in front of the church to find the footpath near the bottom of the hill). We planned a circular route returning via a byway and country lanes but were thwarted by a field of bovines including calves; so went ‘there and back’ instead. It was a hot day so Murphy was pleased to find the water bowl at The Kings Arms. We were warmly welcomed in the bar by patrons and the landlord alike. Alan quickly downed a pint of lime and soda whilst a pint of one of the three real ales on offer was poured. We then retired to the beer garden for lunch. Murphy flopped in the shade under one of the picnic tables while Alan demolished a proper steak pie with new potatoes and veg. Veggie options available too, including a bean burger as well as specials to supplement a full menu. Good food, good beers (and plenty of other drinks to choose from!) and very friendly people – why wouldn’t you? We are glad we did!
