Welcome To The Walnut Tree, Aldington

THE historic “Walnut Tree” pub in the village of Aldington was built during the reign of Richard II.

It started as no more than a timber-framed wattle-and-daub hut with a thatched roof, but in the mid-15th century a small bedroom was added at a higher level – it was reached by ladder.

But during the Napoleonic wars with France the village was the stronghold of the Aldington Gang – an infamous band of smugglers who roamed the marshes and shoreline.

High up on the southern side of the pub is a small window, through which the gang would shine a signal to their confederates on Aldington Knoll. The ghost of George Ransley, a bygone smuggler, is reputed to haunt the inn and many strange happenings have been reported. The “Walnut Tree” has an excellent restaurant which serves fine food – sizzling grillstones, the oldest form of cooking meat on stones on the table. The inn prides itself on home-cooked fare and Sunday roasts. It also has outside bars and a marquee can be arranged for large functions such as weddings. The pub is opposite the village cricket green and there is ample car-parking space and an excellent beer garden.
