Made the short trip from the other side of Maidstone to the pub for dinner. We weren't disappointed with our choice. This is a lovely country style pub which has a clear focus on serving quality food. The menu includes the classic pub dishes but also serves a range of steaks and has various specials. All the food was cooked... More

Went for impromptu lunch. Smiling welcoming staff on arrival and the service only went up hill from there. The menu is simple but with enough to tempt most palates.

This is one excellent pub, lovely atmosphere, great staff, lovely beers, great manager, fantastic food. Never let down at this pub and this time had our 'Jolly boys' Christmas dinner which I can honestly say was the best I've had, cooked and presented to perfection. Thoroughly recommend.

Visited here for my dads birthday meal after being recommended by friends and it was a lovely night all round. They picked us up from our house (free taxi service if you live up to 15 minutes away), the manager who drove us was very friendly and helpful as he also sorted out my massive food dilemmas! I am gluten... More
