About the Pub

Now nearly 500 years old, the Rock is a unique and historical find in rural Kent, yet it's remote nature belies it's popularity with locals and visitors. This characterful old drovers inn has retained many original features and is frequented by characters itself. Extensively beamed, the main focus of this brick-floored gem is the wood burning stove and ring-the-bull game. Beers come from Larkins brewery just up the road with an occasional guest ale. Currently undergoing extension, the dining facilities offer 'proper grub' in a 'proper pub'. In addition to benches by the entrance door the garden tucked round the corner is a secluded suntrap. Whether out for a walk or a country drive, all are made welcome at the Rock, dogs included.
