Tucked away among the rolling hills of Lenham is this foodie sleepover pub, which delivers extravagant live events, delectable seasonal menus, decadent cocktails and exquisite bedrooms. It’s the ultimate package for a heavenly Kent staycation.

Behind the doors of the Wishful Thinker, the talented head chefs focus intensely on mastering beloved pub classics, infusing them, too, with their creative flair and twists. They serve classic staples such as chicken thigh kebabs and burgers, enhanced with seasonal delicacies such as king prawn saganaki, guinea fowl supreme and lamb rump. Firmly believing all meals should end just as fantastically as they began, they also offer an array of tantalising desserts, acting as the perfect outro to your dining experience. If this alone isn’t enough to warrant a stopover, their sumptuous vegan bread and butter pudding served with smooth vanilla ice cream surely is!

Why not turn an evening meal into a short weekend break? As a destination pub, The Wishful Thinker is an idyllic retreat, ideal for a mini trip. It has 17 bedrooms, with family rooms and sofa beds available, and a room with stair lift access for customers with limited mobility. Each bedroom is spacious and expertly designed with customers in mind. After a soundless slumber, guests can ready themselves for the day ahead with the plethora of sweet and savoury breakfast dishes on offer. There’s something to satiate every craving, from bacon baps to a full English and pancakes. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

When it comes to things to do, there’s no shortage of nearby activities available. Leeds Castle is just around the corner and there are ample countryside ambles to explore. Several treks loop around the venue, with suggestion on the pub’s website, to make planning your route easy. After getting in your steps for the day you can return to the pub to rest your weary feet and tuck into a hearty meal. No one needs to miss out on the fun, as both families and dogs are more than welcome.

Guests can also discover exciting events, including live music and tribute nights, followed by a DJ for those who love burning midnight oil. Packages are available enabling you to save money, plan the perfect getaway and make the most of every minute. The private dining room is also available to hire for functions and celebrations to make it an unforgettable occasion. One thing’s for certain, you’re in no danger of wishful thinking here, as everything you could need or want is made a reality!
