Fodor's Review

This pub first opened its doors in 1520 and in many ways hardly appears to have changed. Its big inglenook fireplace and heavy beams give it character, the views from the hilltop are lovely, and the good food and friendly crowd make it a pleasure to relax inside. It's a mixture of traditional pub grub and slightly more sophisticated fare—so you might have a homemade beef burger, or maybe some seabass in garlic butter—but it's all done very well and many ingredients are locally sourced, as is the ale. There's seating in the sunny garden in the summertime. The pub, which sells locally made ales, is a mile from Penshurst via the narrow B2188.
