I have visited West Malling a few times now, and eaten in many of the fantastic restaurants there. So this time it was the Scared Crow for a spot of Mexican food. So it looks like an old English pub. It's small and old fashioned, but, oh boy, the food is amazing. I cannot recommend this place enough. Well worth... More

Quaint cottage pub. Does amazing Tex-Mex food and huge, tasty home-made pizzas. On Monday eves if you order before 7:30 pm they do BOGOF deals - fantastic value. Room for about 20 or so: more in summer in the fenced paved area overlooking the little green. Service with a smile!

Had booked into another pub/restaurant in West Malling high street at lunchtime, but it did not have the food as advertised on its website so went to Scared Crow instead.....very glad we did. Portion sizes....huge...prices reasonable and service was very friendly and prompt. Will definitely go back again.

A great venue, menu and atmosphere. The food was delicious, I'd definitely recommend the fajitas! Although a Mexican speciality restaurant there was a wide range of food offered so something for everyone. The service was excellent- we were made incredibly welcome and all members of staff were friendly!!

Decided to visit a local pub and checked out the reviews on The Scared Crow. It's absolutely true what they said - excellent. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Rob who was very helpful, explained the menu and the specials which were on the board. The food was quick and absolutely delicious. Very filling and very tasty... More
