The Griffin’s Head pub is set in a charming 13th century Grade II listed Kent Hall House.  It is the social heart of the village where locals from all walks of life come to meet up, chat, and generally put the world to rights.  The pub is now fully open for dining and bar service.  Click here for further Enquiries.

Chillenden Windmill is now closed for the winter season and should re-open in 2021, when we hope to open on Sundays from May to September. Local volunteer guides will be on hand to give you an interpretive tour round what is one of only 3 historic post mills in Kent. Admission is free but donations welcome.  Click here for Enquiries.
