Lovely ales and food! Found the pub half way round a circular walk and had a coffee. Wonderful service and top quality coffee and surroundings so we decided to return for a meal later. A great decision!! Although not cheap (top end of mid range)...More

We were walking from Hever to Leigh between Xmas/New Year and stopped here for lunch. The place was packed and the staff were run off their feet. So it was maybe a little slow as a result. However, they were friendly and they earned their...More

Came here with a group of Walkers, most people like to have soup or sarnies while our walking but I do enjoy a Sunday roast. The roast was £16.50 which is pretty much top-end of the price range but on paying for it and a...More

after a long walk around Penshurst Place with the dog, we retired to The Leicester Arms, which I last visited as a 18 year old back in the mid 80s. Now refurbed with very friendly staff, we sat by the fire and enjoyed a long...More

Four of us went for Sunday Lunch. The staff were very obliging and nothing was too much trouble. The roast was very basic, with no gluten free option. I like my food really hot, it didn't meet this at all. I feel for the money...More
