This must be one of the best pubs in Kent. The building itself is fascinating to enter - all beams and ancient fireplaces. The Sunday lunch was excellent, as was the service. One of Kent's beat kept secrets in the beautiful Elham Valley

Very good service from friendly, helpful staff. Food was barely ok: I have no idea what the "roast potatoes" were other than they were parboiled, un-roasted and discarded. Very unpleasant food for the price.
