Manky Badger left this review about The Kentish Horse

I'd asked friends for recommendations for a family friendly pub in the Hever Castle area. This was one of four places recommended. We chose this one over the other three because we found it first.
The bar staff were welcoming, the food good, and the beer well kept. Larkin's "Traditional" which I've never seen before, and Harvey's Best (seen everywhere).
I must admit I was a tad put off by the swarm of smokers blocking the door to the place, but they were friendly enough.
All things considered, 7/10. Above average, but it needs a wider ale selection.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Kentish Horse

This has always been a good country pub, but thankfully still has a slightly rustic feel rather than being over-gentryfied. Stays open all day, but you may have to make your presence known if you arrive at a quiet time. Nice pint of Larkins, with Harveys available as well.

train man left this review about The Kentish Horse

Thankfully downhill if on foot from Hever, and still downhill if rejoining train at Cowden – wouldn't have enjoyed it t'other way, although some may - I seemingly just missed a visit by 32 ramblers, but nb sign for ‘no muddy boots'. Larkins Traditional, Harveys, and two other handpumps which may be used occasionally. Fairly low ceiling with repro beams in carpetted bar, seating to the left where an real fire burns below the list of hearty sounding homemade specials such as steak & ale pie, or venison stew wi mash & veg, £8.95. Beyond this a large room, the feel of a dining area, with lots of well-spaced seating and large inglenook with wood stove, old photos of pub & neighbourhood, further on to a huge garden with picnic sets, kids play area, & fabulous views over downland to the south. They have paddocks out back and apparently house camping for an annual folk festival (end may) when I suspect the other two beerpumps will be called to action! They hold their own folk nt 2nd Sun of each month. Nice little snug to right of bar with stone floor, large rug, dartboard, tv, real fire, prints of country scenes. It has a nice setting at a crossroad next to the church and probably used to be two cottages as just the right half is externally weatherboarded. It somehow fails to achieve a genuinely rustic feel, probably as the bar is more recent, but it is certainly rural.
