We met with friends for early evening meal. The pub has been tastefully refurbished recently. The menu offers a very good choice and the food was delicious and very well presented. Staff are all welcoming and friendly. We will be visiting again soon.

Visited this nicely refurbished pub on a rainy day in September with 13 walking friends. We pre-booked our choices to assist the caterers. The grub was very good and it was served promptly and efficiently by helpful staff. Despite the poor weather, the pub soon filled up at lunchtime and all the other meals looked as good as ours. The... More

Recommended by friends - and deservedly so. Sunday Roasts all round for our group - the Sirloin Roast is a must, incredible for just £11! Great little pub in a nice little village - exactly what people think of when they think of pubs in Kent. Brilliant decorated - the toilets are well worth a visit for the wallpaper alone.... More

Good Food, great service and reasonably priced. On the day we visited, there was a duo playing music and singing, who were very good, adding a pleasant character to an enjoyable evening. It was clear that the locals thought so to. The venue has been recently taken over by the current owners and I had often meant to visit it... More

Visited with friends. Food was so nice. And at a reasonable price We had Isla ( I think that was her name) as our waitress she was very happy to help with any request we had. Everything is cooked from scratch including the amazing ice cream. We will be going back. 😊

Visited this pub completely by chance. Camping a few miles away and wanted drinks,after day at beach. Initially stopped at The George on the main road which was shut ( early on a Saturday evening ?). Fortunately decided to drive on and saw this sign posted. Warm welcome from landlord and helpful bar staff. Obviously seems to have been redecorated... More

We love this pub having visited several times in the past as we are local to area and CAMRA members. We were excited it had reopened to try their beer. The positives are the decor is beautiful, and it is open and airy and menu does look good, what I saw people eating and off menu. The beer garden is... More

We ended up here as the pub on the main road was shut. Very friendly, great service and really delicious food reasonably priced. The dessert was particularly delicious - perfect panecotta, Italian meringue and elderflower sorbet. Inside is refurbished to an eclectic country taste, quiet garden needs some tlc, but we sat inside as it was too hot! A great... More

This pub has recently been reopened following a long spell of being closed. The building has had a complete refurb and looks amazing. The bar selection has some nice niche beers (Freedom a favourite). The owners and staff are equally friendly; as this place is about to become my local I couldn't be more pleased!

My partner and I are relatively local to this pub and we were keen to try it out after we heard it had opened under new management. Well we certainly weren't disappointed! We were greeted by a lovely lady behind the bar who was very knowledgeable about the gins (some 10 different brands on offer and not a Gordon's in... More
