Unlike the modern dry and microwaved "Pub Food" you get these days. The artichoke home cook everything and give you a generous portion so its great value for money. There food is very well made and sourced locally and made fresh. A rare thing these days. Not to mention the village is beautiful and one of the tables in the restaurant is a converted well.

Enjoy

We discovered this pub by accident in October and with a student daughter in Canterbury have been back a number of occasions . The food and drink has uniformly been excellent and on two out of three occasions the staff have been outstanding. However it fell apart last Friday when despite having booked the well table a week before we were bumped off the table with no explanation or apology much to the disappointment of daughter and her friends. Bizarrely, the group who took our booking were fewer in number than us and appeared to have turned up on spec whilst we were crammed onto two joined up tables and were subject to the waitress saying "you need a bigger table"! Cue much deep breathing but we took the view it was all a mistake.The moral seems to make certain you triple check your booking, particularly the well table.

Lovely old pub with roaring open fire, cosy, friendly atmosphere . On our arrival table was not quite ready but staff very apologetic . Service prompt . Starters delicious - the deep fried brie looked amazing ! Mains were enormous , the mixed grill was obscenely big - real value for money . Even though we ate late and the pub was emptying out we never felt rushed . If you want decent pub grub at great value this is the place for you . 3 courses and alcoholic drinks for 5 people worked out with tip roughly £25 a head . We went home full up after having a great night out . Would def go back with no hesitation .

The starters were very good, the staff friendly and efficient but the mains were disappointing despite the large portions. The pub architecture is attractive.
