About the Pub

Overlooking the village green and duck pond, this 18th-century two-roomed pub is one of CAMRA's Real Heritage Pubs and has been in the same family for over 100 years. Its simple furniture and decor has remained largely unchanged for 50 years.

At least two real ales are available, which constantly change. One is always from a Kent brewery. The second provides an element of surprise, being from a brewery from somewhere in the UK. At least three ciders, from Kentish Pip, are available.

As a community pub it is very much the centre of village life. It is a great place for conversation, good fellowship and a place where local societies meet. Entertainment varies from darts, dominoes and skittles to auctions/competitions of local produce, monthly book club (the Coldred Literary Society), community-themed food nights, organised walks and a maggot race.

Three charities are supported by the pub: Prostate Cancer and the local Lions Club. Their third charity is Toilet Twinning: The Gent's toilet is twinned with a toilet in Bechani, Malawi and the Ladies toilet with a toilet in Makawanpur, Nepal.

A 3-day summer beer festival is held in June, to coincide with the Church Fete.

The pub may open in the afternoon for small groups.
