The Muddy Stiletto Awards Finalist

The Muddy Stiletto Awards champion the very best local independent businesses and celebrate the most unique and inspiring local lifestyle companies across 24 categories.

We are very proud that The Beacon is one of five finalists for Kent’s Best Restaurant Award. Thank you to everyone who has voted for us, but we now need one last push as voting not only goes back to zero but closes on Wednesday, 22 May.

Everything we do at The Beacon is for our guests. We source quality ingredients from local and independent suppliers who are as passionate about their produce as we are.

We would love your support for the final push with the Muddy Stiletto Awards. Please place your vote for The Beacon, it would mean a lot. 


Over the next couple of months, we have some exciting shows in our homes at I’ll Be Mother. We’re opening our Amphitheatre at The Beacon with a fast-paced comedy, The 39 Steps, and we have a magical immersive dining experience of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at our woodland kitchen, Kingdom. Both are shaping up to be incredible evenings, and neither are ones you want to miss. Check out our new What’s On page to find out more.


English Breakfast or Bacon and Maple Drizzled Pancakes are our favourites so we are now introducing these choices for Brunch for £10, which includes coffee and a juice.

This will be available every day. Go ahead and treat yourself.

Also, for a limited time only, if you come in during the weekdays and when booking, quote ‘Love Spring’ and you will receive a free glass of wine alongside our Set Menu. So, starting tomorrow, come along and experience the blossoming views, with a glass of wine, and some great food.


Megs’ incredible brunch every day we hear you cry? Well, you’re in for a treat. The Twenty Six is currently undergoing a spring clean and a slight transformation to turn it into the go-to place for brunch. We’re going to be opening our doors 7 days a week and that means you can come and enjoy Megs’ inspiring and inventive dishes whenever you wish. Follow us on our facebookpage to find out more.


At Kingdom we have an extra soft spot for our four-legged guests, even the ones that can’t fit through the door! So while our customers are finding new ways of visiting us, we’re finding ways of striding forward and improving ourselves. We have a lot of exciting news coming in the near future, but starting this weekend, coinciding with St Patrick’s Day, we are going to be introducing our new Green Matcha Lattes! Packed with antioxidants, Matcha also helps to increase your metabolism, calms the mind, relaxes the body, increases your mood and aids in concentration; so not only is this a perfect excuse for an Instagram post, but also very good for you!
