About
The Hopbine is a freehouse pub nestled away in an idyllic location. Tucked in the countryside, opposite picturesque cottages and with an open log fire throughout the winter, The Hopbine epitomises all that a country pub should be. Our menu choices are all freshly prepared on premises, using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. The kitchen serves hand made pizzas that are cooked in our wood fired oven plus traditional pub classics and Sunday roasts. The Hopbine is a freehouse and boasts a cellar, highly prized when maintaining real ales. We have a selection of real ales, keg ales, lagers, and a selection of ciders from local breweries. We also have an outside deck and lower garden nestled at the rear of the pub.

The pizza is out of this world

Simply the best pizza I can find for miles. Wonderful and friendly pub. A regular spot for a while to come I have no doubt.

We live very locally to this well run small pub! It’s at the end of all the best country walks for us. The food is 1st rate and the staff make us and our terribly behaved children welcome!😂😂😂 Highly recommend a visit. The garden is very nice but “ales” in comparison to the freshly cooked pizza!

Under new ownership. This is a small and welcoming little pub deep in the heart of the Kent countryside. The new owners have done a great job of landscaping the garden at the back of the pub where there are tables and chairs to sit and enjoy a drink or a meal. We visited for lunch and found the hot meals, chilli and the quiche unavailable but we did enjoy a salmon & avocado salad and a plowmans lunch. The food was well presented and ok but slightly overpriced. Inside, the pub represents a typical local, small but cosy and atmospheric.

Would it hurt the barman to smile?
This used to be a very welcoming little pub. Now new ownership and on a recent visit we were disappointed at the reception we got

A small and cosy country pub that is worth finding
This is a small but cosy and atmospheric traditional country pub, and the smallness enhances the friendly atmosphere. Not easy to find, and although it is on a corner where parking appears difficult there is ample parking just along the lane to one side.

Essentially it is one bar, although divided by the fireplace. As has been said, the gent’s toilet is outside and down some stairs, so not ideal if wet or icy, although it was out of order when we were there (the ladies is inside though). The Badger ales were good but there was no food being served when we visited, and I understand that it is shortly to change hands, so things might change with the food and the ales available. So watch this space.
