“Roaring fire at the Robin Hood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

The Robin Hood is definitely what's known as a destination pub and restaurant. It's a good long walk to there from anywhere, but it's definitely worth it. I've just come back from a walk with a friend and we popped in for a tea and coffee. The proprietor was just filling up the fire with wooden logs and it was lit before we left - fabulous. I can't wait to go back when it's autumn proper. They have pigs and sheep in the back and a cockerel to keep the kids amused. I haven't eaten there in a long while but I remember it being a very nice Sunday lunch. The owner and his wife and really nice as are the rest of the staff. Good range of beers my husband tells me!

Note to TripAdvisor: can we have an option between "Average" and "Very Good", such as "Good"!

“Friendly and welcoming atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

We had completed a twelve mile walk on the North Downs Way in torrential rain and were in desperate need of shelter. The pub was warm and welcoming - with great atmosphere in bar. Roaring fire and very friendly staff. Will definitely go back.

“Great Ambience,Great Food,Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Though We don't live very far from The Robin Hood we had never eat there. After a rave review in our local paper who operate a secret diner policy we thought we'd try it.
The food was superb,the service excellent, friendly and helpful. It's a very old pub/restaurant not far off the Pilgrims Way. If your in the area and looking for a good meal in olde Worlde setting it's well worth a visit.
It has a very good range of Beers some of which are Kentish plus an extensive range of wines.
Six of us ate this evening and all can't wait to get back.

“Lovely Country Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

What a lovely find this was thanks to Trip Advisor. Set way out in the countryside. We went for an evening meal. Staff were very friendly and the meal was delicious and well presented. Bottles of wine were also a reasonable price. Would certainly recommend it for a meal or just a drink. Do not be put off by the outside decor which could do with a lick of paint, inside was lovely.
