Blacksmiths Arms, May 1998

A friendly, comfortable village local full of character. Wormshill's a small village between Sittingbourne and Maidstone. Wormshill's signposted from the main Sittingbourne-Hollingbourne back lane (the former B2163). A low beamed pub with tiled floor split into two nicely decorated bars. They offer food at lunchtimes and during the evening. I've enjoyed one of their doorstep sandwiches though the one that my sister Nicola chose was perhaps a little too generous! The main meals that they had on offer ranged in price with a couple of unusual dishes on offer at the more expensive end. Even so, the food did look very tasty and was reasonably priced.

Great real ale is available. If the beer and food doesn't keep you warm then the log fire that they have in the winter will. Should it be Summer and warm however when you visit, you might like to wander outside to the pleasant beer garden behind the pub with views across the fields…
