We visited for lunch (4 adults and 5kids). Service was very friendly and welcoming. Food was delicious (we tried lamb koftas, sausage rolls, salads, bagels and scotch eggs followed by a selection of yummy cakes). Comfortable and great decor in a very pretty village.

Hamerton Jones is a wonderful cafe in a Goudhurst serving homemade salads, pastries and cakes. They also sell gifts and other bits and bobs. Very friendly service. Can't wait to revisit.
