My wife and I went out for a late lunch recently at a pub we often visit. Unfortunately when we arrived there we discovered there was a problem with their kitchens and they weren't serving food (really must learn to phone ahead!) - so we set off to find somewhere else. Driving through Horsmonden we passed the Gun and Spitroast and realised we'd never been into this quite attractive village pub, so decided to give it a try.
We didn't eat in the restaurant - it wasn't open at that particular time and we didn't want a full meal, just a light lunch. I had crab cakes and my wife had a grilled goats cheese salad and both were good - nothing outstanding but good, simple pub fare. What pulled the Gun and Spitroast above average was the friendly bar staff and some very well kept real ale. The pub is light and comfortable with a very pleasant beer garden to the rear. Well worth a visit if you're passing.
