The Brewhouse Cafe at National Trust-owned Knole Park is a possible coffee stop 2.7km/1.7 miles into the walk. It also serves "light lunches" 11.30am-3.30pm and hot food 12-2.30pm.
The Windmill in Sevenoaks Weald (01732 463330),7.8km (4.8 miles) into the walk and requiring a 1km diversion off the main walk route, is a pleasant and comfortable pub, which has a varied and high quality food menu. It has 46 seats inside, 30 on its patio, so it is a good idea for groups of over 10-15 people to ring to book. Food is served 12-2.30pm on Monday to Saturday and 12-4pm on Sunday.
The Cock Inn in Ide Hill (01732 750310), 12.8km (8 miles) into the walk, is a characterful, popular and reasonably capacious pub with a good food menu, served from 12-9pm Monday to Saturday (ie, all afternoon) and 12-7pm Sunday. It has some outside tables, looking out onto the village green.
Ide Hill has a Community Shop at the place indicated in paragraph 68 of the directions. which serves hot drinks, soup and other snacks, and has a couple of outside tables when the weather is fine. It seems to be open daily.
The tea room at National-Trust run Emmetts Garden, 14.7km (9.1 miles) into the walk, is a possible early tea stop or late lunch stop (it serves soup and sandwiches). It is open until 5pm from March to October, and until 4pm in November and early December - see www.nationaltrust.org.uk for details
On the green in the centre of Westerham the Tudor Tea Rooms are open until 5pm daily (in summer at least), while Food for Thought at the east end of the green does cream teas and cakes until 5pm daily. Costa Coffee at the west end of the green, is open till 7pm Monday to Friday and 6pm at weekends. Close to it is the Grasshopper on the Green pub, and Westerham also has other fine pubs.
For picnics, the green outside The Windmill in Westerham is pleasant enough, but a diversion off the main walk route. If you can wait, there are some fine spots in paragraphs 43 (at the top of the field) 52 and 53 of the walk directions. The green at Ide Hill is also very pretty
