Wondering who we’re named after? Sir Thomas Wyatt, born in 1531, lived in Allington Castle, not far from our restaurant. As well as being a prominent military figure in history, Sir Thomas took the local honour of being elected an MP for Kent in 1547. Thomas’ father also had close ties to Henry VIII – working as an ambassador and poet to Henry.
