The Hop Farm was a major supplier of hops to London breweries in the 19th and 20th centuries. Families across south-east England and beyond would spend their summer holidays working in the rolling countryside around the Hop Farm, harvesting hops and preparing them to be transported. Among its historic features is the world’s largest collection of Victorian oast houses, which offer an iconic backdrop for Grill-n-Chill.

Grill-n-Chill at the Hop Farm can be found on the A228 near Paddock Wood, Kent
