Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The John Brunt VC

A rather plain exterior with fading gold lettering on green paintwork doesn't immediately shout "pub" to those passing by, a feature not helped by the traditional pole-mounted sign being located some distance away on the other side of the road. Inside, the rusticated layout of four separate seating areas is little changed from the short-lived (and unlamented) 'Hopping Hooden Horse' days. There is also a simple part-patio, part-grass beer garden to one side. Modest Thai-food menu. On this visit, I found Pride, Doom Bar and seasonal Rocking Rudolph (£3.80) plus two ciders - Rosie's Pig and Aspall's Cyderkyn - on this five handpumps. The most interesting feature is the display in the former small dining area about Paddock Wood's most famous son (after whom the pub is named).
