Went for Mother's Day lunch with family including young kids and we loved it. A very warm welcome, good service, great beers and wine, good portions and 2 tasty veggie options. I would highly recommend. Added bonus was free glass of bubbly for the Mums.

Three of us went here for dinner last Saturday, having first visited a few months ago. I wish we had a pub like this in our village. The place has a relaxed feel to it. Food we had included bacon & avocado salad, stuffed mushroom, cod & chips (huge portion) and burgers. All very good indeed. Good wine, great desserts.... More

My wife and her parents visited here after it being recommended to me. It was our wedding anniversary treat and had never been here before, despite it being quite close to where we live. As we arrived it looked like a lovely English village pub and it was nice inside too. Furnished nicely and there are several parking spaces out... More

We just stopped to ask for a place to stay over night. We stayed for dinner. The heartily welcome from the owner. He drew a map that even I understood, the cook delivered dishes with the most tremendous tastes, and the atmosphere was full of laughter. A jolly stay.

We stumbled across this pub for lunch after a long cycle round Kent. This is good old fashioned English pub with good hearty, simple pub food which tastes great, along with a few specials. Will definitely come back again.

Booked last minute and luckily got a table. Only a small little restaurant but very busy. The food is excellent. Friendly service and knowledge. Something a bit different these days sets it apart. Well worth a visit
