Superb food in a lovely village pub

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

Once again, my wife and I have just returned from a delightful lunch at 'The Bucks' The new owners who have only recently taken over from Helen ( the previous incumbent ) have unbelievably improved what was already a fabulous venue. The atmosphere is relaxed and very welcoming. We have always found the staff attentive and professional, in addition the... More

There was such a good choice from the specials and the main menu. If popping in for lunch the baguettes sound delicious and it's a shame I live so far away that I can't keep popping in! The dishes were beautifully presented and the portions were generous and I wish I could return to try another dish. We had the... More

The food in this charming inn is certainly something to write home about. The dishes are beautifully presented and imaginative. The portions are generous and I can't wait to return to try another dish. We had the lobster spaghetti and the sea bream cooked in coconut milk, after an amazing starter of a pea and mint soup shot with parmesan... More

I celebrated my birthday there last Sunday with friends and we couldn't have had a nicer day. They were extremely accommodating, whether it was about raising the number of guests from 10 to 14, bringing my own cake, having a few kids with us who were running around, feeding their dog under the table and generally talking a lot of...
