A really great old fashion Pub, we have lived nearby for a great number of years and never been there ( our loss ) and on a recommendation we have been twice and will be back again this Saturday, delicious food and easy on the pocket. Yet to try the Sunday Lunch but we will get there very soon. We... More

Although slightly difficult to find at Dunks Green outside Tonbridge, the Kentish Rifleman is well worth the effort. The menu is comprehensive from Kentish Lamb and Beef to seafood salads such as Salmon, Prawn and Sea Bass cooked fresh, hot and very tasty. Waitress staff whether inside or in a pleasant garden to the rear were attentive, charming and quick... More

A lovely little pub located down the little country lanes away from the hustle and bustle of Tonbridge. Good food, plenty of space inside and outside, and decent beer and ale. Friendly service and lots of locals who regularly frequent the pub (when they're not ploughing the fields). There's also off street parking for around 10 cars. Only thing to... More

Have not been to this pub for many years, however we did go there for a meal last week and enjoyed very tasty food from a well thought out menu, good service, rounded off with a pint of Harveys. We will be taking friends there later this month.

There was an interesting range of real ale on offer from Harveys of Lewes to the Westerham brewery Finchcocks. Tried a couple of pints of the latter and it was first class. Cool but not cold and with a lovely hoppy flavour. We ate in the dining room with homemade tomato and basil soup plus chunky white bread the pick... More

While on holiday in Kent, we chose the Kentish Rifleman after viewing the online menu and hearing a local recommendation. From the varied menu we chose "The Rifleman Steak: strips of Fillet Steak, with mushrooms, bacon & onions, in a red wine & cream sauce, with vegetables" at £15.00, "Roasted Chicken wrapped in Serrano Ham with Mediterranean vegetables and new...

I visited The Kentish Rifleman with my partner on Friday 29th May. We hadn't booked a table and when we arrived it was buzzing, so we were unsure if we'd get seated, but there was one table for two remaining. We both had three courses, which is unusual for us, but the food was of such a high standard that... More

We stopped of at this place for lunch, the chicken burgers were good, the location is great and the beers were of excellent quality from 4 different local Brewers. It was raining when we came but sure the garden is a great sunny day spot
