About the Pub

This 15th century pub set in a hamlet deep in the unspoilt Kent countryside is a rare gem that majors on good beer and friendly hospitality and is well worth the effort to find hidden in the lanes between Wye and Canterbury.

The beamed and timbered bar has an impressive inglenook fireplace. Food is available evenings with fish and chips Thursdays, pizzas from a wood fired oven Friday, and burgers on Saturdays.

Completely refurbished since closing in early January 2015, when the pub was basically a restaurant. It was a pleasant surprise to find the pub reopening in summer 2016 as a drinking establishment with basic food.

There is a working blacksmith's forge adjacent to the pub specialising in contemporary wrought iron work.

Pub games include bar billiards, a rarity nowadays and a quiz night is held on the Second Sunday of the month when the pub stays open until 10pm.
