Traditional pub, set on Bessels Green, Sevenoaks. Well known and local ales on hand pull as well as a fully stocked back bar and extensive wine list. A wonderful team of chefs prepare a menu that changes daily with a focus on using seasonal and local produce. Warm and cosy in the winter with three open fires and various nooks and crannies to hide away in. In the summer we have an extensive patio and beer garden, positioned perfectly to catch the last of the evening sun.
