See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Located off the beaten track on the North Downs where walking and cycling are popular. Grade II listed it was originally built in 1533 as a hospice for monks and became an ale house around 1615. Several different areas with many beams indicating its age. Lit nowadays by electricity rather than the oil lamps that were here for many years. Much old furniture and the bar features an inglenook fireplace. Very good food produced by chef Paolo Rigolli using local ingredients. Separate bar and restaurant menus. Five and seven course tasting menus. Uses in house artisan cured and smoked product on the menus. Excellent beer comes from local Kent brewers.
