Inside Kent Magazine recently wrote in their article Food, Glorious Food,
“Your partner fancies pie and mash, you want something a bit special – where do you go? The Jackdaw, that’s where. The traditional pub in Denton offers a fantastic menu of classic English fare such as Fish & Chips and Ploughman’s Lunches, but also boasts a full menu suited to the gourmet in all of us including dishes such as Coriander-crusted Lamb Rump and Pan-roasted Chicken Breast with Thyme Risotto…..
…..When visiting The Jackdaw for a mid-week lunch, the first thing I noticed was the simple beauty of the exterior. The landscaping and building are impeccable, with a lovely lawn and scattered tables out front for enjoying a drink on a warm spring day. As it most definitely wasn’t a warm spring day when I visited, I headed straight inside to a most welcoming cosy interior and settled down at my table by a blazing fire……
…..Whether you want a hearty home-cooked meal, a Kentish cream tea, a simple glass of wine or a gourmet dinner, The Jackdaw has something for everyone. The secluded but convenient location makes it the ideal choice for a quick bite or romantic event – even for those with the most opposite of tastes.”
As the reviewer has said, our menu caters for a wide range of tastes and changes with the seasons. There are also specials which change on a daily basis. Our well qualified and experienced chefs are eager to please!
