Lovely hidden gem

All round a very lovely place to visit, food is of a high standard and a wide selection of drinks available the service here was second to none. Parking is ok and location is great especially outisde in the sunshine.

Arrived just after the close of the food service ( ridiculously early for a sunny weekend ). We knew this because the staff rather rudely informed us after we enquired about a sandwich. They made no attempt at a cheery welcome,even less at answering our enquiries about the on-site brewery and overall gave us the impression that our custom wasn't... More

This pub and restaurant offers exceptional service and really good food. They also brew their own Bitter which is superb. Recently our Ham Platter starter was plenty for two, offering several diffent hams with olives and warm rustic bread. For mains do try the Boar Burger, it is amazing. For sweet we had Chocolate Brownie, and Lemon Tart. These are... More

Enjoying a leisurely tour of this lovely part of Kent, unfortunately we arrived at this pub just after food service stopped at 2pm. This is in a lovely setting with the village green opposite, outside seating and a car park at rear. As there was no food I ordered a pint of their home beer and a drink for my... More

I'm a bit surprised by all the 5*comments and 4* markings that others have given this place because, whenever I'm reviewing, I always explain why I've docked a star or more. Ah well. Anyway, I had no reason at all to complain here: the setting is lovely; the (brewed on site) beer superb; the service efficient and friendly; and the... More

Firstly and most importantly the food was very good, from the roasts (beef/pink) the lamb rump and the boar burger everything was cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic. Based on the food alone we will definitely be coming back, we have been trying to find a nice village pub with good food for a while. This pub is still a 10... More

The setting of the Swan on the Green couldn't be better and it's certainly a popular pub amongst locals. The menu is standard pub fare, but at least there's a vegetarian option and a few fish dishes. My partner enjoyed his boar burger rather more than I enjoyed my nicoise salad with lime and chilli marinated swordfish, which was meagre... More

This is a distinctive pub which brews its own beer and serves excellent food at sensible prices (not too expensive to frighten the horses but not so cheap as to suggest the Ingredients are collected from wate bins.) Lovely staff and a wonderfully English country setting - old church, cricket green and just a little demanding to find. We use... More

Another lovely lunch here on a perfect sunny afternoon after a walk through the countryside with friends. Watched them playing cricket on the green outside while husband sipped a beer from the micro brewery and we ate ciabattas at£6.90, tasty and beautifully presented. English country life at its best!
