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.

I visited The Kentish Rifleman with my partner on Friday 29th May.

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

Superb meal ( we had seared pigeon breast and venison) at very realistic prices and cooked to perfection. Lovely friendly atmosphere and excellent service. A real treat - thoroughly recommended but you need to book at busy times.!

We called in one Sunday for a drink, there was no one at the bar serving and another couple were waiting. We waited a while and still nobody could be bothered to serve us so we left.
