So nice to find an independent pub serving exceptionally good food with an individual menu. Caring discrete and unobtrusive service. We were four adults and two young children after a day at Bedgebury Pinetum. All satisfied. Thankyou.

Stark wooden tables on wooden floors where every footstep clip clopped and resonated round the room. Food was delightful ........More
