There were three ales on - London Pride, Harvey's Best, and Timothy Taylor Landlord. the pint of Landlord I had was in good condition, but nevertheless it looks as if the selection might be not quite as good as when previous reviewers visited. I didn't see a menu, but they obviously do food as there is a large dining area at the back on the left with all tables laid for diners, and some specials were advertised on a blackboard.

It really does have the look of a country pub. Dark posts and beams are all over the place, and an attractive brick fireplace sits between the main bar as you enter and the room that has been added on the right. There's a fair bit of outside seating as well. Furnishings are all traditional, and the place overall had a warm intimate atmosphere. But (for me anyway) the ambience was detracted from somewhat by the flashing fairy lights on the ceiling, and plastic foliage draped around the posts and beams. But I still liked this place a lot, and would be happy to return here sometime, perhaps for a meal.

A quick pint on a damp July evening. I’ve known this pub for years, back to the days when there was a petrol pump in front. A farmers’ group that we belonged to held its meetings here. However, I hadn’t been in for years, and I found it more open and airy than I remember.
A traditional Kentish house,opposite the church,and next door to the Bonny Cravat, with much exposed timber,brick floors and different levels. I went into the empty public bar to the right, but soon moved on to the saloon, complete with a fine station masters clock over the fireplace. The landlord is renowned locally for his knowledge of ale, and I was delighted to see Golden Braid from Hopdaemon. Adventurous beer festivals are held from time to time.
A good, down to earth village local, it ticks a lot of boxes, and I would use it regularily if it was in walking distance.

Popped in during a cycle ride. Very pleased to see that in the two years since I last visited, standards have been maintained. Five ales on, and a cider. And the food was excellent, served by friendly helpful staff.
I shan't leave the next visit so long...

Friendly country pub with decent choice of ales and good food. Pleasant gardens at front and rear.
