A 15th Century Kent Pub and a well respected French Chef combine to make for a memorable dining experience. Joel Gross (Owner and Chef) is a long time friend of both David and Richard, Trish and Carla joined us, the weather was delightful. English Country Pubs and French Food – do they mix? Oh yeah! Timber Batts? They’re the verticle timber thingys that David and Joel are leaning on in the picture above. Late afternoon we journeyed on to Richard and Shelley’s new country ‘cottage’ – like every good Aussie home – the BBQ is very important.
