Harveys Best, Pride, plus changing guest, yesterday being Titanic Lifeboat, £3. I missed this last time I visited the area, maybe because its location is listed as Orpington, rather than Halstead? Anyway, I'm glad I found it this time, a rather charming pub with the air of a country inn, two bar rooms, and quaint (& popular) restaurant area to one side. Front bar has huge inglenook, low beams, hanging tankards, open access to rear bar room with wood burning fires at each end – this place must be blazingly welcoming in winter! Large plasma showing golf, dartboard (you'd need to rearrange tables to use), very nicely furnished with solid tables, dark wood chairs, bench settles, stools. I didn't really take sufficient note of the little restaurant room, but it deffo had the feel of somewhere I'd like to sit down for a meal, and the friendly young guv was at pains to advise that their food was homemade, as opposed to home ‘cooked'. On the large blackboard in front bar a good choice included cod, chips, peas £10.50 (fresh fish daily); cottage pie £7.95; whole sea bream £11.95; burger with ‘pint of chips' £7.95; sarnies ~£5. I really liked it, & returned for another beer before the bus, from outside, back to the Knockholt stn – be warned, they run (Sat) at .14 past the hour, until 6pm, then 18:23, then, oh, that's it. We turned up for the 19:14! Ah well, it was downhill walking back.
Oh! I haven't told you about the garden; really lovely outside area, part-paved, part-grassed, picnic sets, some umbrellas, surrounded by tall hedges, shrubbed borders, picket fence to country lane, beyond this to gravelled pub car-park. Local cricket pitch is other side of pub, sadly not visible from here (or there), but that's the sort of spot it is. Pub has 3 pumps in each bar, so maybe could try 2 guests (if thrupull allowed) but definitely recommended if you happen to be over this way.
