Very good food, though a limited choice on Sunday lunchtimes, as in many places. Biggest selection of veg I've ever known! Friendly, helpful staff though we had to ask several times for 'extras' such as sauces, more gravy etc. Also not good that there was no hot water in the loos (gents at least). But overall, a very good place... More

We visited for a romantic meal, without children, on Saturday 2nd may. Warm welcome and noticed a table had been reserved for us, we chose to request a move to a smaller table away from the bar. Staff were extremely accommodating, and nothing is too much trouble. Friendly bar staff and attentive waitress, who checked on our table periodically, to... More

The first time we went here we just had drinks in the garden. Deciding where to go for dinner we thought we'd try it. So glad we did. Brilliant starters and mains, shame we didn't leave enough room for puds! Next time!

We had lunch here yesterday, the service was outstanding so warm and welcoming. Gluten free choices for my coeliac son were great including hand cut chips, sausages and fish pie! Beautiful setting too! Would thoroughly recommend.

Ate with friends at this pub today after a walk in nearby Knole Park. The pub is situated by a picturesque green and changed management in October 2014. The hosts and bar staff were very welcoming and, though we were an hour early, were happy to seat and serve us as soon as we arrived. The pre-lunch nibbles of olives,... More

I cannot say enough about the superb Bucks Head at Godden Green, Sevenoaks. I have been, on occasions, for a drink and lunch before and everybody is so kind and welcoming. This Easter Sunday, 5th April, we had the most amazing lunch. The food was excellent and so yummy! My guests & I declared that this was the best roast... More

Went with a party of 17 people. New owner Ralph and his family managed to accommodate us at short notice. They were super efficient and the food was delicious, with great portion size and all cooked to perfection. Would recommend this pub to everyone, I don't think you'll be disappointed. A great relaxed atmosphere accompanied with finger licking food and... More

Only popped in for a casual drink and the staff were very welcoming. Lovely open fireplace and plenty of seating. A good selection of draught beers. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again, and next time try the food
