Pie and Pint night £10.00 all in. Probably the best pie I have ever eaten, irrespective of the price. Excellent!

Found by accident. We went to the pub for a quick drink and were lucky enough to find a table. We only had time for a quick snack but it was delicious. We will definitely be returning one weekend for the Sunday roast.

We were lucky enough to spend a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon in this picturesque village pub 'The Dove'. A buzzy, quirky, friendly pub with heaps of atmosphere and although a small menu, the food choices were diverse. Beetroot smoked salmon so fresh and delicate, a whole baked Camembert which we all had to dip into! The roast's were perfect. Beef... More

What a result, my birthday fell on the night of the wine tasting dinner!! We were welcomed with lovely glass of pink champagne to go with the super smooth chicken liver parfait followed by scallops and a superb white wine. Main course was a fantastic fillet of beef and yes you've guessed, more wine, this time red then a then... More

I came here with my mum for dinner, it's quite a small pub which is quite nice, and played nice background music. The wood burner was cosy and generally a nice atmosphere, great for a nice catch up with mum. The food was gorgeous, I had smoked salmon to start, and a fillet of beef for main which was beautiful...

Sunday lunch on a cold February day was excellent. The pub is small and cosy and the food hot and freshly cooked. Pork, roast potatoes and roasted root vegetables, plus a huge tasty Yorkshire pud, was perfect, as was the sticky toffee pudding, caramel sauce and ice cream for afters. Friendly owner, nice background music and an all round good... More

Visited for the first time on a Sunday, with my partner and our 8 stone herding dog. All 3 of us were made to feel extremely welcome and every member of staff we encountered was friendly and professional. The atmosphere is lovely and the candles, music, lighting and decor all make it quite quirkily romantic. On to the food. Wow!... More

I booked a table here for my grandmothers birthday after hearing Gregg Wallace from Masterchef raving about it over Twitter. Seeing as he is a food critic, I thought it must be pretty good food!! The sunday lunch menu is small but varied and offers a good choice for whatever your taste buds. I think it is really reasonably priced... More

In Faversham for the weekend and this was recommended by our host and wife. What a pick. Started with a gooey, more-ish camembert and it was so decadent; I could even share with husband - although he got none of the homemade pickle. He had beef, loved it, and I had risotto which is one of those dishes I always... More
