We arrived just as last orders were being taken for the kitchen at 2pm and were just fitted in. Sat in the bar area with our dog and a warm fire in the background. Great home cooked food and a friendly local and well attended inn. Very good value and would definitely come again. The home made pate and beef... More

Whenever we visit this pub we have a reminder that we should do it more often. The location, beer and food are all good and the staff always friendly. Last Sunday was a bonus in the form of a Christmas menu. Just lovely.

Went for a family Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday. There were 11 of us but we all got our food delivered at the same time - beautifully cooked and everything a proper Sunday roast should be. The service was excellent and I was particularly impressed by how unfazed the team were at providing my autistic son with a plate... More

We recently visited on pie & a pint night after previously visiting for Sunday lunch. The food was delicious, the pie was filling but relatively & pleasantly surprisingly light. We tried the week of the wine which was really good, great choice as well. The pub has a great atmosphere & friendly staff. Will be returning!

I have known this pub for over 50 years and have seen its ups and downs. Recently I have started using it again and it is as good now as it's ever been. I have been there with friends and last Thursday I ate there with my two sons. Each time the food has been very good and reasonably priced.... More

We met our eldest daughter for lunch at one of her locals, the Kentish Rifleman. We had been previously and usually have had good food. On this occasion I was SLIGHTLY disappointed as my starter (pate) did not have enough bread, despite the fact that I requested extra and the seafood sharing platter had some fairly tasteless prawns. Having said... More

Very nice pub and very friendly staff. Went on Friday 28th October with my son and husband and we all enjoyed the whole experience. The food was very good.

My wife and I frequent this pub at least every other week for drinks, not least because they have very good beer and wine but they also sell the best pork scratchings. We have also dined here on a number of occasions (the most recent being tonight) and every time the food has been excellent. It's not haute cuisine but... More

Was recommended this place. Thought we would give it a try. The food was good but had to wait a bit in between courses. The roast potatoes wasn't as well cooked as would like. Staff were friendly but the landlord was a bit of a character and customer service was not his forte. I don't think I would go there... More
