Back in Sevenoaks - just a note to say this is how a pub should be run.

Unlike the Black Boy next door, where I thought I was the invisible man, I was greeted by the landlord who introduced himself, asked where I had walked from, shook my hand. Allowed a try of a fine pint of Franlins English Garden.

Pub as noted before but welcome appreciated.

Was open at 3:30pm on a Saturday afternoon in June.

Old school pub with three real ales - Harvey's, Wimbledon brewery and something else unnnoted.

Harvey's best in fine condition. Pleasant pub with a good vibe.

This was the only old school boozer of the four I visited It looks like it could have been a Bass Charrington house back in the day. It's a single room with a curved bar at the centre. There were posters advertising live music and a darts area.
The bar had just three pumps with Harveys's Best, Doom Bore and Dark Star Partridge Best. I went for the Partridge which was in excellent nick. This is a good basic local but for me the beer choice was rather dull.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Anchor Inn

Given the generally upmarket nature of the surrounding shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, it is a pleasure to find a nice old-fashioned boozer (and especially one that appears to be thriving). Partly opened out to form a 'J'-shaped bar, with fairly plain furniture and decor. Friendly welcome from one of the knowledgeable landlords. Food served Monday to Friday lunchtimes. Live music and other events advertised. Three handpumps, offering the regular Harveys and Doom Bar plus Turners Best Bitter from Ringmer as a guest (£3.30, with taster offered first, and in top condition). GBG listed, and you can see why, and well worth seeking out.

A GBG pub in the high street area, The Anchor is a no-nonsense boozer which offers real ale and basic food at reasonable prices. A corner location, it is a single large bar which has smoked glass windows, external and internal, which gives it an intimate feel. Locals were quietly playing darts and dice, and there were also a pool table and tv which weren't in use. Visitors were warmly welcomed by the staff who are professional and pleasant. There are, according to the notices, regular live music and open mike sessions. Three ales on - I had Copperhead which was perfectly kept and in excellent condition. Highly recommended for its beer and I am certain I will return next time I'm in town.
