Set amongst Kentish orchards, this pretty country pub has a rustic, down-to-earth feel with sturdy old wood furniture and unique features such as a beautiful old wine cellar and deli kitchen. Outside, you’ll discover a large garden, with a children’s play area, ideal for a refreshing summer pint of Harvey's from the wide selection of local ales and ciders. Traditional English, continental and wood-fire dishes appear on the menu, perhaps lamb kofta; baked camembert; wood-fired pizzas; slow-roast lamb shank, crushed potato, curly kale and red wine jus; butternut squash tortellini; and a superfood salad.
