Had a vegetarian Sunday lunch with three friends who all had the meat version. Great portion, good atmosphere and very friendly service.

Wood burning fire, good food, we had an issue with desert, as wasn't as nice as would have hoped, but they dealt with our issue very well, and offered a new one, or refund, would definitely recommend if you are passing.

This pub put a dampener on already an emotional day, it started first with the bar staff that need training in customer relations after today, telling the funeral party to go down the back of the pub and not block up the bar area, then secondly came out the poor excuse for food. The buffet cost £450 for a party... More

Monday lunchtime and still very busy. We had lunch after attending a funeral at the crematorium which seemed to be where most of the customers originated from over the course of the two hours or so we were there. The food was good and we were full up by the time we left. Thought it was quite pricey - £17... More

Booked for 10, but 12 of us turned up and they were able to provide a couple of extra chairs, although not without pointing out they were very busy (stopped me scoring excellent). Service was efficient and friendly, the food mainly sandwiches and chips were very good and extra sauce was provided. I think everyone felt they would be happy... More

After attending a very dear friends funeral we were invited back to this pub/restaurant for an afternoon tea type function. It was very nice and the food and drinks were very good too. A pub with a lot of character and obviously quite old but very nicely decorated and cosy. I believe they also cater for weddings which I would... More

This is a fabulous little pub set in rural Kent. The owners are really friendly and the food is very good. The atmosphere is as you would expect in a country pub with lots of WW2 history to find out about. Thoroughly recommend but definitely book for Sunday lunch... it's very popular.

We've been to this pub several times before, but not for a while as we live in Midlands. We were very pleased with the warm, friendly welcome, just as a pub should be, but so often isn't! Had a lovely meal last night. Nice choice of Sunday roasts or something slightly less traditional. Excellent value. Cosy, slightly shabby chic interior,... More
