The micro brewery was the reason for our visit; tried some beers and they were good. We decided to stay for some lunch which was OK but a bit pricey which is typical for this area. Would go again for the beer. In winter the log fires are an added attraction, in summer sitting outside should be a pleasant way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

This pub is the epitome of traditional Kent. Hunkered up against West Peckham green. No frills inside with bare floorboards and scrubbed wooden tables, bar offset with hop bines for decoration. Two warming log fires... Wonderful!

For beer lovers this pub is a micro brewery with plenty to choose from. A good selection of wines are also available.

The menu was traditional with choices of roasts, pies and fish dishes. Deserts included baked Alaska, salted caramel torte, panna cotta and the like.

Best of all was the Sunday road beef with Yorkshire puddings, roast spuds proper (meat juice) gravy and selection of veggies. Jam rollypolley and homemade custard for desert. A true taste of home cooking. Not fancy or mucked about - just deep rich flavours from good quality ingredients and a chef who knows how to cook.

We have visited and eaten at dozens of pubs that do food throughout Kent,Surrey & Sussex. To be honest there are very few good ones in Kent and this is one of the best. We have eaten here a few times before. It's in a good location, close to a few footpaths for country walks. in a picturesque cul-de-sac village off the beaten track and probably not that easy to find. The food is good quality modern British pub food that is priced about right (If you want cheap have your food microwaved in Weatherspoons). The ambience is good with a wide mix of age groups including families with children, University students on holiday at home with old school friends, etc. We have no connection with this pub and live 15 miles away. Well worth a visit just for the microbrewed beer'. Should be in anyones top Five.

The Swan on the Green in West Peckham village is a unique pub. It is one of the last genuine `locals' but with modern gastro-food. It has a micro brewery and sells its own beers plus a wide wine list.
