This place is always packed, even during a dreary Winters day, during the week. The food is always of a very high quality, and the service excellent. Book well in advance or you'll be disappointed!

Very pleasant staff. We were so pleased with the meal that we immediately booked for the Mother's Day lunch.

I have visited this old pub many times and the food is always fresh and delicious. The menu has a decent selection of dishes everything from fish and chips to prawn curries ( a special that day). The puddings are also good but I am usually too full from the generous main course to eat more! It is not the... More

Had lunch with my husband, he had the duck and I had the steak and ale pie, both were delicious. Husband loves their real ales. Not an extensive menu but always have a couple of specials. Currently doing a pie and pint on a Tuesday for £10 or 2 courses for £10 on a couple of evenings. Friendly staff who... More

Did not except to eat this evening at the Rifleman but so glad we did. Very retro menu with deep fried Camembert and prawn cocktail to start and duck confit with braised puy lentils and Savoy cabbage and bacon to follow. Two courses, well cooked, £10 Wednesdays and Thursdays. Get there before they go bankrupt. Nothing not to like....

Visited this pub on a cold and dreary day--but found a real pub with good food (reasonably priced) and good ale.

A group of us met there for lunch, good food, especially the specials. Good selection of real ales, a pity I was driving! A nice old pub in a rural setting. Would eat there again.

The kentish rifleman is a proper locals pub at first appearance, with the bar area always busy, but don't be fooled, they know what thy are doing with the restaurant as well. A simple menu with a nice selection of dishes that doesn't run into pages of choices, food is freshly prepared and the table staff are friendly and efficient.... More
