Consider the 10-minute drive (or hour’s coastal walk) west through Seasalter to The Sportsman something of an epicurean pilgrimage. The surrounding marshes flecked with grazing sheep backed by the Thames Estuary set the stage for this Michelin-starred “grotty boozer by the sea” (as dubbed by self-taught chef Stephen Harris). Featuring marsh lamb, razor clams and seaweed butter, menus are an homage to the terroir – Harris has been known to make salt from the seawater. Book as far in advance as possible.
