Came here towards the end of July. It was a Monday evening, but there were still a few locals in. The food was hearty pub grub, and the cask ale was in fine condition. All round good atmosphere, aided by friendly staff. What''s not to like!

I'd always wanted to visit this pub,as it features in one of my favourite ever films, the Battle of Britain. So after a visit to the nearby Battle of Britain museum at Hawkinge I took the short drive over.
From the front the pub is mostly unchanged, tho it has been much altered inside & a large restaurant area to the rear of the bar is a dominant feature.
Three real ales & one cider, Thatchers Heritage were available. I had a very good pint of Harvey's Bitter, & a three cheese ploughmans which was good value- there was no skimping on the cheese. The pub was very busy during my visit, but staff remained polite & friendly. Although food is clearly big here, drinkers were welcome in the front bar. there is a bus stop outside.

Having visited the nearby Battle of Britain museum at Hawkinge in the morning, we happened on this pub only 4.5 miles away. Coincidentally, it would seem that it appeared in the movie 'The Battle of Britain'. Christopher Plummer and Susannah York meet here in a scene in the film. Although the front bar areas appear to be original, a medium sized restaurant area has been added to the pub at some stage in its life. Sadly, completely out of keeping with the rural aspect of the older part of the property. Id guess that it is now operated by one of the larger chain inn owners.

The young male and female working the establishment were welcoming and cheerfully efficient. Three cask ales were on offer, Shepherds Neame Spitfire, Harveys Sussex Best Bitter and another. All four of us were served acceptable pints. The food, probably pre-prepared, but was to a good standard. Two of us choose a ploughmans lunch that included three types of cheese, more than I would normally eat in a week.

We stopped here in Jan 2010 and it was some of the best food I've ever had (Steak in Stilton crust, mashed potatoes with horseradish seasoning). I'd recommend it highly! Oh, and good beer too!

This pub is in a tiny village on the Canterbury to Folkestone road, and is nowhere near Canterbury. Could it be entered under "Denton" instead? Has a bus stop, and is a good base for country walks in the surrounding beautiful countryside.
