Popped in ad-hoc for Sunday lunch. The place was packed, luckily though we were offered one of three non reserved tables. Hubby had a pint of 'yeaster' ale which he enjoyed. The pork & beef roasts were yummy, with a lovely cauliflower cheese, veggies and homemade yorkie pud. Delicious. We only live in Faversham and will definitely be back -... More

The pub itself is over 400years old and is awash with exposed beams and feels like and is a really lovely old English pub. The new managers offer a really sincere and warm welcome, it felt like my local within minutes... More
