Visited here very recently for a meal. The pub is literally in the middle of nowhere amongst the Kentish country lanes, it is very pretty and very old being beamy and low ceilinged (if you are over 6ft tall then you will get a stiff neck by the end of your visit). Despite being so rural it the Bar was... More

Stopped here for dinner after reading about in the tourist info pack at the cottage we were renting in Rolvenden. A very warm welcome from staff and regulars, food was excellent and local beers lovely, only downside was that we had a table for four in the bar , and with the dog sat under it was a little cramped...

By chance came across it on trip advisor. Very welcoming staff. Menu a little restricted but food served was very nice. Will certainly revisit.

Stopped here for a couple of beer, very pleasant drinking environment, the menus looked exceptional, and saw some very happy customers having dinner there. Staff very friendly, and a very friendly dog in Bella!

Arriving for a mid-week lunch without a reservation, we were directed to the only unreserved table. That says a lot about this place's popularity! Everything is ordered from the bar as the menu is on the wall in the bar, which is always a bit irritating, having settled in the dining area, and then having to get up and mingle... More

It's true, my favourite pub, sensational food, the landlord is a true gentleman and his daughter adds another fresh element to an already outstanding institution. This is one place not to miss if passing through the area. All the punters we have met here on our frequent visits are all very friendly too. Food is great, nothing is too difficult,... More

A little off the beaten track but well worth finding. Excellent food and great service. We were early evening and the dining room was not busy

Grandchildren took us on a walk on a nice sunny day and ended up at this great hidden gem but only had drinks in the loverly garden. Great traditional country pub that offers bar snacks on a Sunday and a friendly welcome from landlord and team. Will visit next time for food.

The woodcock is a true old fashioned boozer that welcomes everyone. The landlord is great and the steak sandwich is to die for. Beer garden is a sun trap. Off the beaten track but well worth going to.
