About the Pub

Attractive and traditional pub with open fireplaces, dating from 1565, and named following a visit by Queen Elizabeth I. The pub is situated in the centre of an historic country village but is less than 20 minutes by bus from Bromley or Orpington. Charles Darwin, a regular patron, lived at nearby Down House.

The four handpumps normally include at least one beer from the nearby Westerham Brewery as well as offerings from other regional breweries

There are several dining areas benefiting from a daily menu which includes home-made pies. There are also regular curry nights, and from Thursday to Sunday mornings, hot refreshments and cakes are available.

The pub is popular with walkers and locals all year round. Bromley CAMRA Pub of the Year for 2014.
