Fantastic food. Fantastic staff. Gary the new guy running the place is a dedicated chef and foody. Being a meat lover and ordering the tomohawk steak was a complete joy. Restaurant was well away from the bar and quite intimate. Will be returning very shortly....More

I had asked for a special meal of either roast lamb, roast chicken or Grilled Salmon served with veg and trimmings. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it.

A traditional country pub in the pretty village of Birling, just outside West Malling. All food ingredients are sourced and purchased by Andy. Our chefs take great pride in preparing our dishes from scratch using only the finest ingredients. See our Website for the latest menu. We have 3 hand pumps for real ales and have been in The CAMRA Good Beer guide for the last two years. We have a separate dining room which can be used for Birthday Parties and other family occasions. Our large patio is perfect for al fresco dining in the warmer months. Music events take place throughout the year which will be advertised on our website and Facebook page. A family friendly pub where everyone will be made extremely welcome by Andy. Dogs are also welcome and fresh water is always available for them after that long walk!
