I have had several lovely lunches here so i didnt hesitate to return with my friend. I have also had a bagette here before which was filling , plentiful and worth the money . This time however was a let down . The bagette I ordered wasn't as advertised and was nothing like before. It was half the size, not... More

The food came out and my mate and I just looked at each other!! It was so shocking we paid for our drinks and asked if we could return the food as "poor" and left. The landlady said no one had ever complained before today! This was nothing better than a supermarket "part cooked" baguettes with a bit of ham... More

A colleague and I popped in for a beer and lunch and have to say it was a very pleasant surprise. The beer was just right and the chicken breast burger and mexican burger we had were delicious!

Lovely place and the staff were second to none. We had an absolutely brilliant night and the disco and Elvis singer were fantastic. If you want to book this place for large functions there are rooms available and a massive dining room for weddings and birthdays alike. Buffet was good and all fresh.

I had driven past The Hawkenbury Inn pub a few times and kept thinking that we must try it soon. We walked there from home, in Staplehurst, which took about half an hour along the main road but it was lovely on this fine Spring day :) When and walked in we were instantly greeted by the really friendly and...

My mother's 70th, waited an hour before our food arrived. We asked why it was taking so long - apparently my mexi- burger was delaying everything (?) I've never seen a roast dinners served with one potato before, in fact half of one potato. We asked for more potatoes and were told they'd be another 20 minutes. Well after waiting... More

Visited this restaurant about a month ago on a Monday night. The special offer for Monday nights is buy one main meal and get second free. My cousin and I both opted for the lamb shank. I have to say it was the best I have ever had along with mashed potato loads of mint gravy and vegetables done to... More

We ate food here 3 nights running whilst on a cycling weekender. Simple but varied menu, nice local cider available. They certainly did cyclist portions. Very reasonable too.
