No worries, I’m not a local but one of my mates is, it’s got quite a few real ale pubs, including one underground in an old cellar that has no TV or phone signal, but loads of boardgames. Which is probably useless if you’re on your own.
Ghurka Kitchen next to maidstone West station is good for a curry. When I’m unfortunate enough to be marooned there overnight I sometimes get my kicks by walking down the high street and trying to preserve my anal cherry from the assorted low lives.
Stole WIFI from the golden arches and nursed a coffee doing some work and then parked up in a shady industrial estate next to a waitrose depo to await my MOT in the morning… which failed so I got the hell out of there! Cherry intact.
