Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Ewe & Lamb

Very attractive country pub set in a small offshoot of the main Rolvenden village about a mile away that you wouldn't find by chance. It sits in a slightly elevated position, with enough space on the front lawn for a number of large wooden and smaller metal tables. With coronavirus restrictions in place, and in good weather, customers were encouraged to sit outside so I didn't get a full look at the interior, but the bar area is pleasingly traditional. Just Harvey's available from a small bank of handpumps on this visit, but this was in fine form.

The dinner I had a couple of weeks ago was one of the best meals I've ever eaten in a pub. The waitress was polite, attentive and helpful, and the chef was taking care to see that all was going well. The menu range was huge, food excellent. As a resturant, top marks 11/10. I'm certainly going back

However, I look for beer, not food. Three ales, one of which is the ubiquitous Harveys which seems to appear in most pubs in the South East these days regardless of who owns the pub. And the other two were old reliables - beer you can (and do) get everywhere. The Rother Valley Brewery can't be more than five miles away. Goachers isn't far. Sanhurst Vineyards make two beers. Why not try half as hard on the beer as they did the food?

Much as it pains me to say anything against this place, as a pub, it's no great shakes and in that regard I can't go higher than 7/10.

If you're planning to be in the area and eat, this is THE place to go. But if you want a pint, try somewhere else. It's a top restaurant with a half-way decent bar.
