I came here once with my ex-girlfriend around the mid-'90s.
It seemed like a good, traditional pub in an idyllic village but seems recently to have been converted into a tearoom.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Golding Hop

More-or-less unchanged for as long as I can remember; hidden away on a narrow country lane in a very attractive part of rural Kent. The pub itself is a picture, comprising of what looks like three buildings of different ages. The cosy bar is in the lowest, central part, with another room in the larger (house) section which contains a bar billiards table. There is also a small raised area at the other end of the bar. Four real ales are served direct from the barrel, keenly priced at between £2.30 and £2.60 (depending on ABV), plus 'House Rough' and three other ciders. (NB - This place has an unusual approach to customer service so you are best advised to look at the notices behind the bar to find out what beers are on, with the ciders being listed on a separate chalk board.) There are three benches on the tiny front patio, but it has a large beer garden (with childrens play area) on the opposite side of the lane. Overall, a bit idiosyncratic, but a real treasure in its own way and thus well worth seeking out.

This pub is in a true idyllic country and sells beers straight from the cask.The only thing that spoils it is the uninterested person who was behind the bar who only said "up there" when asked what real ale was on.Shame.Other than that a nice little pub.
