My daughter and son-in-law booked this restaurant for Sunday lunch. The food was excellent. A wide variety of meat and well cooked vegetables. But I can unfortunately only give an average mark for the whole experience. My son-in- law made the booking and advised them...More

Undecided due to the fact that, cannot fault the food or the staff , both superb... however there are other localish eating houses just as good, some maybe better at much better prices. Would probably not go out of my way to return.

Great to see some vegan options. I have previously had a vegan roast dinner here which was lovely but more recently I noticed they do a vegan pizza with vegan mozzarella. Really nice meal. Worth a visit.

We enjoyed two meals on a Friday evening. The restaurant wasn't overly busy but there was enough atmosphere. Scotch egg and pork ribs were especially good. Couple of niggles, paper thin tiny napkins and the cutlery wasn't replaced when the starters were cleared, No salt...More

In the ancient parish of Brook, under the ridge of the Brabourne downs sits a gem of an inn, The Honest Miller.This village inn, built in 1609, was for many years a meeting place for countrymen out pigeon shooting and hare coursing. It was also where the local hunt would meet, waiting on horseback to receive their mulled wine and spirits.Today, in this historic atmosphere, the attractions are a little different. Sit in the beautiful old English beer garden sipping quality real ale, or enjoy a ploughman’s lunch among the free range chickens. The beer garden is ideal for children, with a resident Shetland pony, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep and ducks.Inside, the inn oozes charm, with an open log fire and friendly welcome. It’s a romantic spot for couples to enjoy a candlelit dinner. Walkers and cyclists are also valued customers, along with their dogs. The kitchen is the hearts of this place – you need look no further for a superior home-made meal. Melt-in-the-mouth Romney Marsh lamb shanks, slow roasted and served with leek and rosemary gravy are just one of the delights on offer. Start with roasted butternut & vegetable soup, or creamy goat’s cheese with roasted peppers. Try our rack of Pork belly ribs with hickory barbecue sauce and homemade chips or Haddock with a mature cheddar & herb crumble topping. Desserts include Italian tiramisu, with Madeira and mascarpone, apple blackberry crumble, bread and butter pudding and lemon meringue pie. There are also vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes.
