More restaurant than pub. Went in on a Sunday lunchtime to find that the carvery was the only option for food which was a bit disappointing for some of us. Having said that, the roast was very good and reasonably priced. Four real ales on, I tried the Tonbridge Rustic ale which was OK, not great. For some reason I can't explain, I really didn't find this place very inviting.

Visited this pub today for lunch with a friend. I had a pint of Broadside which was spot on. There is a good and varied menu with a slightly cheaper Specials Board.

The meal was well presented and good value for money. The barmaid (can you still call them that?) waited on table and was very attentive. The pub was very neat an tidy and my friend said the ladies toilet was spotless.

All in all, a very good experience. Will certainly call in again if passing.

oh dear what has happened maybe it was a one off this time.i found the service very slow and not once during our meal was we asked if we would like anymore drinks .i ended up going to the bar myself throughout the meal.hope this was a one off as we have been there several times and service was never this bad.

I don't know what to make of this pub. I've been in several times now since it re-opened, and have come away with a different impression every time. The beer's always excellent - the landlord knows his stuff and is genuinely interested. The service has on occasions been very slow; the pub has sometimes felt very cliquey. The food is said to be good, and I believe these reports, though I haven't eaten there. They've made a very good shot at retaining a pub atmosphere, and not letting the food side take over. A lot of thought's gone into the decor, but I don't like it.
Altogether a mixed impression; I'll keep going back, and see what emerges.

My wife and I called in during the early afternoon. Excellent pint of Pale. The food, it was quiche and real chips was excellent as was the attentive service and surroundings. Secluded garden at the back with a dedicated play area for under 6s. Very very nice place and more of a gastro pub than a traditional local.
