Was in the area and we needed some lunch so we checked TA and found this little gem. Fabulous old pub dating back to the 17th century where they were obviously a lot shorter than we are now as this is a very traditional place with small doors and low beams to avoid. We were welcomed and showed to our... More

Arrived as in the past before opening hours and prepared to go for our country walk before lunch. Publican came out of pub and sarcastically waked if we were just going to leave our car there. Explained that we were off for a walk and would return for lunch. He demanded that we move our car. Reminded that the pub... More

I am not a regular reviewer here, but when you find a hidden gem like this, it should be applauded. Lovely old country pub, with a warm welcome & a log fire. The menu is regularly updated, and infinitely more than just "pub grub". While there is traditional pub fare to be had, which is very tasty, a lot of... More

Just had an amazing meal. Love everything about this pub but especially the food which is so much better than the usual pub grub. The Christmas menu is so good. I had rib eye steak with cottage pie and red wine jus. My wife had the rack of lamb. Starters and sweets too excelled

My husband and I went here today for an impromptu Sunday lunch, and some time together whilst our 6 month old son was with the grandparents!! The food is absolutely gorgeous, the staff are very friendly and the prices are reasonable. Set in a quiet part of East Peckham, with the river running through the garden, it's an idyllic location...

And won't be the last. This is a lovely pub. Not a restaurant. Not a gastropub. Just a pub. And whilst not a gastropub, the food was excellent. We had the fish & chips and the ham, egg & chips and both were well presented and delicious. The Harvey's was well kept and I wish I could have tried more.... More

We have been here several times now since our first visit in the summer. The food is consistently good, cooked to order and to a very high standard. We are always now recognised and greeted by the owner which is a nice touch and makes you feel welcome. The menu is small but that generally means the food is fresh... More
