Paul Baxter talks about the Oak and Ivy

Paul Baxter, landlord, talks about the smuggling past of the Oak and Ivy public house in Hawkhurst, Kent. It was once the headquarters of the notorious Hawkhurst Gang who operated in the mid 18th Century. They were the largest and most certainly most violent of the smuggling gangs from that time.

These days the Oak and Ivy offers great English food and a large selection of the best beers from around England. Situated in the rural countryside of Hawkhurst, Kent the Oak & Ivy sits in one of the great English garden landscapes. Check out the website at www.TheOakandIvy.co.uk
