Although we've now moved away from the area, we always go back to this wonderful pub whenever we can. Fabulous food, lovely setting, and well worth the 2-hour round trip.

We visited recently with my sister and brother-in-law who go here regularly. The slow roasted pork belly with very crispy crackling was delicious as were the fish and chips and sorbets. The service was good and I look forward to my next visit.

Been up there many times for dinner and Sunday lunch, the portions are massive which gives you a real sense of value for money. Food is always impeccable and well presented. Beer choice is good too.

Had traditional fish (haddock) and chips with mushy peas which was excellent. Very near Penshurst Place which is open to the public (house and gardens). Newly decorated, attractive pub. Cheery staff. Nice place.
