We first visited this pub/restaurant over 45 years ago and visited from time to time ever since. On this visit during a leisurely return drive home from a short break in Eastbourne we noticed new owners/ tenants had taken over since our last visit. a lot of work had been done, car park had been coated in tarmac, the interior areas decorated and was now very clean, but still retaining the inns vintage charm. We had lunch here and there was a good varied selection on the menu and it was nicely presented and reasonably priced and very nice. The staff we spoke to were very helpful and polite. We will return and certainly recommend this old inn located on the A259 a Brookland in the heart of Romney Marsh

One of our favourite places to reward ourselves for living in Kent and having taken the dogs for a walk and swim at Camber Sands or St Marys Bay.

This is a 15th century pub in the middle of Romney Marsh and is a wonderful reminder of smuggling history. It doesn't look as if it was on much higher ground than what is now around but this must have been the only dwelling for a long way in every direction so perfect for smuggling.

The fire place is huge and you can toast your feet in winter if the pub cat will let you near it. The garden is big but shaded. This pub welcomes dogs too even though it does food.

The beer is excellent and kept well and the service is friendly and efficient.

A word if warning if you are over five feet ten inches tall; wear a hard hat or risk banging your head on the beams. It is an old pub which has moved settled in different directions over the years so sloping ceilings, floors and walls.

It is easy to find on the coast road between Ashford and Rye and is well worth a visit.
