Independent cafes and restaurants
There are many things that Sevenoaks district does well, but if we had to choose just one, it would be cafes and tea shops!
Sevenoaks’s café culture runs the gamut, from award-winning French patisserie at Dulce’s Patisserie to the fine brews served by Darcey’s Coffee Co. For a brew with a view, try Kingdom, a café in a fantastical wood-and-glass structure on a hillside overlooking the northern edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The restaurants around here are just as remarkable. There are atmospheric pubs aplenty, highly rated restaurants run by passionate chefs and more family-friendly places to eat than you can shake a spoon at. In Weald, family-run Giacomo’s serves up authentic, homemade Italian dishes. At The George & Dragon in Chipstead, you can feast on fine dining in a 16th-century building that creaks with character.
