See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This charming country inn was built during the reign of Richard II (1377-1399) in the year of the crusades and was the stronghold of the Aldington Gang, an infamous band of smugglers that roamed Romney Marsh and shores of Kent plying their nefarious trade. The gang's prolific leaders, Cephas Quested and George Ransley, both natives of Aldington, made the Walnut Tree their headquarters and drop point for their illicit contraband. The restaurant cooks by the ancient method of grill stones. quiz nights are held on last Sunday of the month.
