A wonderful old English pub in a great location. Everyone enjoyed their food, and the service was excellent, especially as we were a group of twelve. The beer was particularly good too.

Having driven past this pub on many occasions we decided to book a table for Sunday lunch. We found the food and the service excellent. The staff were very friendly and efficient with very prompt service. We will definitely go back again.

Lovely pub nestled in Kent countryside. Food was excellent and service great as well. Although atmosphere was fine for us for a Friday night for other people it may have not been what they were looking for but I would highly recommend it
