The Woodcock in Ide Green near Benenden is a hidden gem and very popular with locals and visitors. Sunday lunch visit was most enjoyable with a local beer sat near the open fire before a delightful roast. Well worth a visit but book for the lunchtime.

The food wS amazing, the deluxe prawn cocktail needs it's own review, steak cooked to perfection, I live in the village it's such a shame that I'm unable to visit more often, just a tad to far for me to walk, friendly staff,nice touch for the chef to visit the table and ask if all ok. Also a good range... More

Visited here very recently for a meal. The pub is literally in the middle of nowhere amongst the Kentish country lanes, it is very pretty and very old being beamy and low ceilinged (if you are over 6ft tall then you will get a stiff neck by the end of your visit). Despite being so rural it the Bar was... More

Stopped here for dinner after reading about in the tourist info pack at the cottage we were renting in Rolvenden. A very warm welcome from staff and regulars, food was excellent and local beers lovely, only downside was that we had a table for four in the bar , and with the dog sat under it was a little cramped...

By chance came across it on trip advisor. Very welcoming staff. Menu a little restricted but food served was very nice. Will certainly revisit.

Stopped here for a couple of beer, very pleasant drinking environment, the menus looked exceptional, and saw some very happy customers having dinner there. Staff very friendly, and a very friendly dog in Bella!

Arriving for a mid-week lunch without a reservation, we were directed to the only unreserved table. That says a lot about this place's popularity! Everything is ordered from the bar as the menu is on the wall in the bar, which is always a bit irritating, having settled in the dining area, and then having to get up and mingle... More
