Well worth a visit

Lovely old pub with real fire. Good traditional menu. Food was well cooked with good ingredients. 2 real ales and very friendly staff. About £10 a main dish so great value.

Dropped in for lunch. This village pub has good parking and offers accommodation, a restaurant and tea rooms. Situated next to the River Teise we opted to sit in the beer garden on a fine sunny day. Being early in the season the beer garden could do with a little TLC but this did not distract from helpful staff and... More

We visited Scotney Castle and dropped down into Lamberhurst and had a delighted lunch in the garden. The welcome from the staff could not have been better. The food and drink was great. A wonderful break"

Stopped on the off chance of getting some food and it turned out to be a gem of a place. The staff were very friendly and helpful, from requests we could hear at other tables nothing was too much trouble for them. The prices were pretty reasonable, I had roast beef lunch which was just shy of a tenner. The... More

We have just enjoyed one of the best Sunday lunches we have ever eaten out, also a tasty vegetarian risotto and a fish dish - all excellent , not to mention the pate and deserts!! We will certainly be going back. A friendly atmosphere with pleasant staff who do not rush you. 👍😀

My wife and I had lunch here on Valentine's day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good food, good beer and convivial company, What could be better than that.

We are gourmands and visit frequently. If you are a senior citizen then it is excellent value. The food is better than home cooked! And no we're not bribed! Visit in winter and enjoy the fire.

Obviously a very popular pub, so I feel a bit of a grouch in not adding a 5 * review, however we all felt the menu was avarage as was the food. I had sausage and mash, and the gravey was not flavoursome nor were the sausages. Based on this I would say the food is overpriced and I would... More

We stopped here for a drink, great outdoor garden area (complete with pet rabbit) and the river burbling past. Really lovely spot, good service.

Enjoyed a lovely roast dinner. Relaxed atmosphere and able to read Sunday papers with no pressure to leave the table. Unfortunately poor beer/ale selection. Returned for a night cap but obviously local drinkers/bad language and would not return.
