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; grilled red prawns; wood-fired sourdough pizzas; guinea fowl supreme, potato rösti, roast peppers, harissa and mint sauce; aubergine, courgette and cashew nut bake; and a salted caramel brownie for dessert.
