Bit of a spit and sawdust pub, the food was expensive for what we got. A plastic straw was supplied our drinks, which were banned from October 2020

Rubbish place, such a waste of money! Staff do not know how to manage this pub, no atmosphere at all and you have to wait ages to get served a drink!! - no cocktails just spirits and beer. It is a family run pub, people...who clearly have no experience with managing a pub. I’ve heard awful things about this pub but wanted to try it myself, not worth it. No social distancing at all, limited food selection and even in the garden people smoking weed and cigarettes everywhere. Full of rough people, it’s not aimed at families at all. Staff aren’t welcoming and make you feel uncomfortable, no customer service. Seriously avoid this pub at all costs, go find somewhere else near!!More

Hi have you visited pub ?

Limited menu. We ordered Scampi which was wet fish bites for over £9 chips okay, Mac bites, at a £1 each, better to buy from Iceland's. Soulless place, food is a total waste of money.

Stopped here for a quick drink and what a horror! No social distancing, no track and trace, not to mention the awful noise and drunk behaviour. We passed through just after 22h30 and it was like a garden rave. The whole car park was full,...along with the beer garden! Music, shouting and no consideration for others. We drank one drink and left to find a shop to drink when we got back to our hotel it was that bad.More

My partner and I visited this pub.We had driven passed it many times, looks amazing on outside. Lots of kerb appeal and very well presented, nice back garden. Went for evening drinks on a Saturday evening in August... Very disheartened, such a cold, unfriendly atmosphere,...non welcoming from landlady!! Very miserable. No smiles!!! Such a shame, alot of effort put into this pub but really does not meet comfortable standards at all. Found it hard to relax and weren't allowed to turn the juke box up a little after asking, although the we put our money into it to listen to music!!! Will not be going back there again!!!!!!! Wouldn't recommedMore

If there’s one thing that stands out from this visit is the gracious host, the culinary skills of his wife and the customer service of their daughter. And of course the absolutely delicious hot samosas.

Bar service took a while although there was only 20 guests max. Decoration is so bland. Atmosphere is cold and boring. There is a wall covering the ladies toilets door however it should be facing the other way as people can straight through into the...ladies toilets! Haven’t tried the food so can’t comment.More

I have lived in Biggin Hill for many years and previously avoided this place. Since the new owners have come in the pub has completely transformed. The two owners Vijay and Nim always go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable....They have made so many positive changes and the place has grown from strength to strength. I urge anyone who is looking for a safe and welcoming place to drink to give it a try. Any whisky drinkers are spoilt for choice. I am now a regular and cant wait to see what new changes they have in store!!More
