Pretty village pub with excellent cooking

AA Pick of the Pubs

Open all year
Dog friendly
Free Wi-Fi

Its original small-roomed layout and old-fashioned furnishings make this 15th-century timbered pub a classic. Further atmosphere is provided by low beams, wood-panelled walls, worn brick floors, log fires, evening candlelight and nothing electronic except the till. From the Garden Room and conservatory customers can access the secluded heated patio and huge shrub-filled garden. Bar snacks are served all day, but the kitchen is at the top of its game so a meal here should not disappoint. You could start with warm mushroom, bacon, brie and caramelised onion tart; or parcels of deep fried breadcrumbed brie with an apple and celery salad and fruity Cumberland sauce. Continue with Wilkes pork and sage sausages, mash, spring greens with port and red onion gravy. Harvey’s and Adnams ales and the heady (8.4 per cent ABV) Biddenden cider are tapped direct from the cask. The village sign depicts The Biddenden Maids, who were conjoined twins born here in 1100.
