Welcome to the

Chiltern Hundreds

 

Nestling on Penenden Health, amongst the breathtaking beauty of the Kent Downs, the Chiltern Hundreds is a very special country pub with a very special charm. Pretty on the outside with delightful summer hanging baskets, and cosy on the inside with a distinct olde worlde ambience, the Chiltern Hundreds is a delightful place to refuel after exploring the myriad charms of Kent. The Chiltern Hundreds is situated just off Junction 7 on the M20 and only a 12 minute drive away from Leeds Castle, the 'loveliest castle in the world,' set in 500 acres of beautiful parkland. You'll receive a warm welcome at the Chiltern Hundreds, the only problem may be what to choose on the delightful menu, from the good old favourites and mouth-watering seasonal specials to the steaming, sumptuous Sunday roasts, not to mention the selection of fine wines and cask ales. Recorded as ‘Pinnedenna’ in the Domesday Book, the name Penenden Heath is taken from the Old English ‘pinia’ meaning to ‘punish.’An apt name as, in the darker days of the Middle Ages, as well as being a place of execution, Penenden Heath was also the place where the landowners of Kent would gather to receive important notices. If they failed to attend, a forfeiture of one hundred shillings would have to be paid to the King. Penenden Heath is perhaps most famous for its connection to the Peasants Revolt of 1381. This was a direct revolt against wage freezes and the poll tax. During one of the skirmishes, leader of the revolt, Wat Tyler, led a mob of protestors from Penenden Heath down to Union Street and into Maidstone, before marching on London to confront Richard II.
