We have been to this pub many times but this time were slightly disappointed. There also seemed to be a lot less people there than normal.The drinks have become very expensive compared to other local establishments and unfortunately the food was nowhere near as good as before. Not bad enough to complain about but definitely not as good. Shame as... More

A gem in the heart of Ashford, Kent, because of its superb service, quality food, generous portions and ample parking. Always happy to support a welcoming family pub & restaurant.

Please don't judge this lovely venue from the outside. Seeing it from the outside I was planning to just have a pre dinner drink here before going on to somewhere to eat. Inside is clean,modern and welcoming. We went on a Wednesday which we found is, Mexican night. I love Fahitas and we ordered the chicken. Wow, they were served... More

We really called in for a drink and they were fully booked but I was a little peckish so they served me a starter portion of Chilli con carne. Very good and I'm picky. Next time we're passing I will book and try a full meal from their interesting menu.

A nice country pub off the beaten track, close to McArthurglen Retail Outlet. Really friendly staff. The food was delicious. Very good portion sizes for the starters and main courses that my husband and I had. Didnt have enough room for desserts although it was very tempting.

We use this for a relaxing drink and food after work some evenings, nice to find a traditional country pub hidden away that does good beer and great food

Not too sure how we found it, thought we had taken a wrong turning. Well worth the effort. Warm welcome, good choice of beers, good menu, excellent food, not overpriced. Only two choices of sweet but, after the main course not room for another morsel. I chose the salmon with champagne sauce and asparagus. My hubby had liver and bacon.... More

Booked a table for four for dinner. We were a little early and the small dining area was already quite full including a party of about 10. We had a drink and were seated at our table where we waited a good hour for our meal. Obviously the larger group were served first, but as many of them had starters... More

I feel extremely lucky to live within a couple of hundred metres of this great little gem. If you are just visiting Ashford - from Ashford International it's 5 minute walk and from McArthur Glen Designer Outlet it is 2 minutes over the footbridge....far tastier food than McD's..... We have eaten here since the present owners (Jon & Teresa) took... More
