Part of the fun of visiting this rural pub is getting there. I took the R8 TFL bus that winds its way through narrow lanes and quaint villages, occasionally having problems with cars coming the other way. The bus even had to stop for cyclists, given how narrow the lanes are. The pub is quaint inside and out. Locals who weren't particularly friendly congregated around the bar, whilst there were diners scattered around. All tables were laid out for dining. However, most customers were in the large garden at the rear and side. One solitary ale was on during my Saturday visit. That was Westerham Summer Perle. I had just over 15 minutes before the return bus back to civilisation. Otherwise, it was another 90 minute wait for the next. But, the bus does drop off and picks up directly outside the pub. Worth a visit, but probably not for the beer or service.

A favouite of mine some 10yrs ago
Visited this week Oh dear whats gone wrong?
It may have looked like the picture about 10yrs ago not any more Badly needs some TLC inside & out .
The baguette I was served looked as if it had been defrosted in the micro & not even seen the oven to give it some colour .Made staff aware of problem Nobody returned to discuss
Looked in the kitchen I'm wondering how many "Stars" Bromley awarded the kitchen !!!

Wonderful little country pub, all low beams and traditional decor. I had a couple of great pints of Harvey's Sussex while walking around the area. Like many of the pubs in the area it's a bit of a regular's haunt where everyone seems to know each other, but it's a good atmosphere. I'll have to return for lunch here soon.

Always being an early bird at lunchtime, we see many tables that have been reseved for much later in the period. It's a pity you can't have these tables, if they are reserved for much later, providing you are told this and wil vacate them when necessary. It's stupid having tables empty for, say, one and a half hours, if you arrive just before midday.
Of course all this presupposes that he kitchen staff can get the food out promptly like they do at the nearby Blacksmith's Arms.

Seems like a popular pub, but at 12:30pm on a recent Saturday all tables were reserved and few people sitting at them. What's that all about?
