About The Griffins Head

Relax in front of one of our fires, prop at the bar or tuck yourself away in one of the cosy nooks of our historical public house. The Griffins Head is a quintessential Kentish pub located in the sleepy and picturesque village of Chillenden and surrounded by an abundance of countryside and glorious walks.

We pride ourselves on creating a unique dining experience for all. Using a selection of the very best seasonal ingredients, our skilled kitchen team are producing some of the finest food in Kent. 

Our menu is dictated by the season; using ingredients and dishes when they are at their best and most distinctive, keeping our dining experience exciting and grounded in whats available on our doorstep. 


Whether you're joining us mid-week for a bite to eat from our Bar Menu, celebrating the weekend with our Main Menu or joining us with the family on Sunday for a traditional roast, our aim is to create an atmosphere that attracts people from far and wide.

Chef Making Desserts

Whether you want to warm yourself in the sun outside in the summer with a glass of Pimms or enjoy a perfect pint of real ale in front of a log fire in the winter, the Griffins Head is the perfect place for a drink. If you are looking for a great venue for a family get together, a working lunch, a special occasion or a light snack we’d love you to join us.

Originally built as a farmhouse in 1286, it’s a place that wears centuries of history and heritage with pride - making it a special setting for dinner and drinks.


A fabulous a la carte dining experience awaits guests here, with freshly prepared, beautifully presented dishes served in two charming dining areas, and classic Kentish ales, wines, spirits and more available at the bar.



"We had such a lovely meal at The Griffin's Head on Saturday evening. Pie of the day and chickpea & coriander burger were both delicious. I then had the lemon tart with raspberry sorbet, which was to die for, so hubby was lucky I let him have a taste!! Ellie and Ray did a good job looking after us. We will certainly be back to try some more of their great food"
