We pass this pub on a regular basis without ever being tempted to go in because of the shabby state of the outside reflecting what the inside was 20 years ago. However a recent refurb has made the outside clean and attractive and a friend had recommended so passing on a hot early evening we popped in and liked the... More

Great Pub, great friendly atmosphere. Friendly staff and fantastic managers. The lunchtime menu is the perfect pub lunch and the sunday roasts are excellent. Real Ales on pump with two regular and one always changing. And it's dog friendly. Even the pub dog will greet you....if you make a fuss of her. Lovely child friendly gardens make this a pub...

Good food, attentive service (without being in the way) nice surroundings. Less choice for the vegetarian but still a nice place to go. I usually find just one veg dish on the menu but lots of choice of meat or fish.

We are sorry that your visit was not as enjoyable as we would have liked. We believe you may have misinterpreted the situation of the "Little Man" behind the bar who was in fact responding to a customers bar room banter which is a regular occurrence between them and nothing more. Our pricing is inline with other outlets nearby (in... More

Came here by chance. However we decided to taste the food. What a surprise - ordered home made steak and ale pie which was great. Every mouthful had a large chunk of meat. The pastry was homemade, very tasty. Staff and locals were very pleasant and chatty. Would definitely come back

I am a member of a retirement club in Medway, today 29 of us went for Lunch at this friendly pub. We had all pre-ordered our meals last week, so we were expected. Everyone of us enjoyed their meal, home cooked, large portions, and fast service. Our group are not easily pleased so the fact that we had no complaints... More

We are very sorry that your visit was not as good as your expectation. Many people do visit us and enjoy with many returning frequently. Yes we are an "Old" pub (circa 1592) and as such much of the charm of the place is that it is quite dated. We offer traditional Pub food without the frills that other fancy... More

Visited tonight and were welcomed very warmly by the staff. It is a lovely old pub catering to family's and couples. The food is well cooked and tasty. We will definitely return at some point. Would be lovely to sit in the garden in the summer.
