About the Pub

This traditional two-bar community pub is situated in the heart of the village and has a comfortable lounge bar and a dining room.

Outside, the old fire station, complete with historic memorabilia, serves as the pub's sports bar and function room.

Two ales are typically served from a variety of breweries, including Kent breweries. A third ale may be available during busy times. Occasionally a mild from the Wantsum brewery is featured. In the summer, real cider is occasionally served.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, two ensuite and one with its own private bathroom.

Great home-made food which includes a good value two-course table d'hote menu (available Monday to Saturday) and occasional themed food evenings. Sundays have a separate lunch menu featuring the ever popular roast.

There is a full events calendar including an Easter beer festival. Monthly events include live music, a quiz night and a clairvoyant evening.

At the back there is a suntrap patio which has a children's play area and petanque pitch.

Dogs are welcome in the garden, main bar and function room.
