Best food, amazing staff, just brilliant!

We went here after a few of us did a run at Hop Farm down the road and were starving! The pub was so quirky when we got inside and the staff were so friendly from the offset! I had the pulled pork starter which was the nicest pulled pork I've tasted! And for main the steak and chips, which... read more

Lovely setting on the river and pub was packed, which is always a good sign. Service was excellent and we didn't have to wait long for the food either. Food was well cooked and hot. At one point one of us went to the loo with child and the manager immediately came over to ask if we wanted the food... More

My husband and I visited this charming pub on Saturday evening. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who were extremely attentive. We both had the pulled pork with apple mayonnaise & toast to start which was absolutely wonderful. I had the steak with peppercorn sauce which was perfectly cooked, it came with a huge bowl of...

We hadn't been here for quite some time but decided to pop in for lunch as we were passing. My husband had Crab Crostini to start which he enjoyed and I opted for the Pulled Pork with apple mayonnaise which came with pieces of toast and was very tasty. Both really good starters. For the main course we had burger... More

After a nice long walk we came across this beautiful pub! Surroundings are stunning right next to the river and the ales and food really hit the spot. A really nice atmosphere and the staff and locals very friendly indeed. Will definitely be going back for longer next time. Highly recommended! :)

We've visited this pub on several occasions and always found the welcome friendly, the girls behind the bar (Sharna, Alice and Shona) were friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food has never disappointed and is of a consistently high standard, the young girl who bought us our food (Amy) was again professional and made sure we were happy.... More

We have eaten here many times and Neil has even cooked special meals just for us on a few occasions. The food is always excellent regardless if it is just a sandwich, an evening meal, or one of their wonderful Sunday roasts! We would recommend the Man of Kent to everyone - and we have!

If youve ever been to the area you probably know this pub by its lovely location by the River, with outdoor seating alongside. The location sells the pub, and it's really busy in summer particularly at weekends. Out of season or on colder days, I'm afraid the pub is average, as it can't rely solely on its location and has...
