Nice looking building of some antiquity, with a traditional tile-hung exterior at first floor level. The main entrance takes you into a small bar in the original structure, with a side room which was a dining area for a short time following the pub's reopening a couple of years ago but now houses a pool table. There is another part of the servery and more seating in the newer part of the building (whose exterior doors are no longer in use). The interior has been refurbished to some extent, but this does not detract too badly from its historic nature. Three handpumps on the bar, but just Master Brew (£3.30) available on my last visit. Unfortunately, it appears to being going backwards again following the period when it was managed directly by Shepherd Neame (which is a great shame because Tenterden needs a good, old-fashioned pub like this).

A real pub, relatively recently taken over after a period of closure then brewery management, it held good promise to be my regular local. However, after a good start with the food offering, the quality of the ingredients has dropped and the quality of the cooking is variable. Effectively, this makes it a drinking pub, but only selling Shepherd Neame beers - not good enough, without good food, to warrant regular visits. It is a shame, as I think the current operator had the best chance to run it profitably: if she cannot make it succeed, then it seems doomed to closure again. *SIGH!*
