“Totally unspoilt”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

It's like going back in time - in a good way! The pub has quirky decoration that makes it feel like a real pub in the middle of a real community. The Shepherd Neame beer was kept beautifully. They only do food of a lunchtime (not sure about sundays) It was a basic menu but the ploughman's had top quality cheese which is much more than you get in other places. The bar girl who said she was new was very friendly and added to the charm and welcome. Thoroughly recommended. One note of caution for parents: they have fairly traditional rules towards children inside the pub (not at all on a Sunday) although I believe they have a garden, worth checking first.

“A lovely traditional pub by the cricket green”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

This is a truly charming pub, not far from Bridge. It is easy to get to from Canterbury and the A2. The beer here is extremely well kept and served by very pleasant landlords and the locals help to create a very homely atmosphere.
This is very much a pub and not a restaurant pub. In fact it says it doesn't serve food. I believe they do have sandwiches sometimes though, especially after cricket matches.
Highly recommended and long may it last.
