Booked for 10, but 12 of us turned up and they were able to provide a couple of extra chairs, although not without pointing out they were very busy (stopped me scoring excellent). Service was efficient and friendly, the food mainly sandwiches and chips were very good and extra sauce was provided. I think everyone felt they would be happy... More

This is a fabulous little pub set in rural Kent. The owners are really friendly and the food is very good. The atmosphere is as you would expect in a country pub with lots of WW2 history to find out about. Thoroughly recommend but definitely book for Sunday lunch... it's very popular.

We've been to this pub several times before, but not for a while as we live in Midlands. We were very pleased with the warm, friendly welcome, just as a pub should be, but so often isn't! Had a lovely meal last night. Nice choice of Sunday roasts or something slightly less traditional. Excellent value. Cosy, slightly shabby chic interior,... More

We called into the Jackdaw pub for a bite to eat & were not disappointed. The lamb & mint pie with vegetables & mash potato was superb. Friendly helpful staff too.

In spite of the fact that we only booked a table for 6 and grew to 10 the staff were very accommodating (even though half our party arrived late they didn't object). Bar food perfect for a Christmas Eve gathering and our well-exercised and resting under the table dogs welcomed.

I have passed this establishment on numerous occasions on my way to Folkestone and I stopped for the first time last week. What a pleasant surprise as it was much bigger than I expected and well laid out. There was a large dining area and a smaller one dedicated to the Spitfire and such from WW2. All the staff were...

We had a lovely family meal at this pub on Sunday. It is a cosy, welcoming pub with a lovely fire and sofas. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. We don't come for the area so may not be back for some time :-( but would happily recommend.
