Coronavirus Special Notice


The Tickled Trout is closed until further notice
Dear customers
In light of the coronavirus we have decided to close the pub for the foreseeable future.
As a 5-star rated operation we strive for high levels of cleanliness and food safety and have indeed reviewed and implemented more stringent cleaning programmes to reduce the risk of coronavirus.

We would like to offer a delivery and takeaway service that is sustainable without the risk of infection hence closing the doors to the general public and have selected a small team who are all able to self-isolate to avoid risk of infection.
Our aim is to be able to service those that are vulnerable and need our support the most and we feel that by protecting ourselves is the first precaution in enabling us to help the community.
We have spoken to our suppliers and the local Environmental health authority at Ashford Borough Council and are confident that this service can be sustained through what will be a very challenging time for all of us.
We have produced a menu that we hope will meet your requirements and maintain our usual quality. This will be available from noon on Saturday.
To order call us on 01233 812227. Payment must be made by card at the time of ordering. If you wish to collect call us when you’re here and we will bring your food to your car. If we can deliver, we will leave the food on your doorstep.


For more than 400 years, an Inn or Tavern has stood on the banks of the River Stour where the Tickled Trout now stands.

The Tickled Trout is typical of the distinctive Kentish architecture of the period and greets the visitor with a welcoming and unique ‘olde world’ charm.

We strive to maintain this charm of oak beamed bars and open fires for our customers.
Our well maintained gardens alongside the River Stour, provide the ideal setting for ‘Al fresco’ drinks and dining, with a superb choice from selective menus for which we are renowned.
