I'm surprised this isn't in the Good Beer Guide.... plenty of historical interest - with it being a C16th coaching house. A proper pub.

Four real ales on - two very local, a Tribute but I went for one of my favourites - Harveys Sussex Best. I would say its as good as I have had anywhere.

Very impressed.

I recall a historic and atmospheric pub from my brief time living in Sevenoaks in the very early 2000s. I also recall the 5th November torch parade passing here in 2000 - like a scene from the Wicker Man.
I'd happily return here if passing.

A clearly historic town pub situated between two main streets just before they converge and consequently having entrances from both. Claiming to date from the 16th century, inside there are low beamed wonky ceilings entwined around with hops, the bar is more or less central with the room meandering around it. The once multi room layout can be imagined by the different wall and floor treatments and the various fireplaces, one of which was thankfully roaring away with logs on the go. One small end area has full height panelled walls and looked rather appealing but overall this is a warm and welcoming old pub. Another recess had a dartboard and TV. Regular seating at mostly scrubbed and sanded tables, there are newspapers, books and board games on shelves. There are a few nice framed black and white photos of the old town on the walls.
An historic write up suggests the pub was also once a local court house and had cells below with the town gallows being adjacent.
On the pumps were Tribute, Tonbridge Rustic, Harvey's Sussex Best, Westerham Spirit of Kent plus Old Rosie and Rosies Pig ciders.
