Not visited since 2001 when this was our local, this was a pleasant, traditional family-run pub (as I recall) with a good atmosphere in a pleasant residential area and off the beaten track.
In keeping with the name, I remember a couple of old rifles mounted to the wall but the photos on the website show an altogether more modernised affair.
I'd return if in the area.

In many respects, this Greene King house is rather better outside than in. It has a number of benches out front which are pleasant in the sunshine as the adjacent back street has little traffic. On the opposite side of the building, the raised decking offers a substantial covered area plus a separate smokers shelter. Lower down, there is also a basic beer garden with a few further benches. Inside, there is some plain furniture in each bar plus pool table, etc. in the larger back bar. IPA, Old Golden Hen (£3.80), Rocking Rudolph and Tribute available from a total of eight handpumps split between the two bars. Overall, rather hidden away but worth a look if you are in the area.

A relatively appealing Greene King pub on the outskirts of Sevenoaks but more of a local's pad than anything worth going out of the way for. I have been lured here a couple of times in the past year by my nephew who occasionally plays in a band that performs here although it really isn't a place conducive to live music with cramped bars and poor sight lines. The front bar has a darts area and is generally inhabited with bar huggers. The rear bar is equally cramped but does have extended areas containing a pool table one way and bar billiards the other. Décor and furnishings are pretty standard with a few beamed ceilings, military pictures, a log fire (that belts out enough heat to make the place a bit of a sweatbox) and the old pub sign now displayed by the pool table. To the rear is an attractive rear garden with covered decked patio.

One huge bonus is that despite being a Greene King pub, it does offer a guest ale to supplement the 2 GK beers (my recent visit saw the excellent Davenport Highland Whisky Ale). Prices are reasonable, staff and customers quite welcoming and it is generally a pretty civilized place albeit off the beaten track to most people.
