Upcoming events

30th March 2018 HUNT THE MEGA EGG 2018.
Prompt start in the Garden at 12.00 on Good Friday (or Easter Monday if the weather is poor). Hunt for the coloured plastic eggs in our garden, to collect a real chocolate egg from the bar (max 2 per child, 1 large egg and 1 crème egg). There are 120 large eggs and 120 small eggs for the first children back with them. Don't forget to look out for the special note inside one of the eggs to win the MEGA egg. £2 to enter. For children 12 and under. All profits will be donated to Cancer Research. We will of course try and make sure all the children get an egg but last year we did sell out, so please don't be late. Thank you

Every Friday morning we serve fresh fish delivered from Chapmans of Sevenoaks (catch of the day). The fish is then battered in Old Speckled Hen real ale and ready on a first come first served basis.

Best pie I've ever tasted
Beautiful old pub and gardens backing on to the river. Fantastic meal - had Mrs Manning's pie - best pie I've ever tasted, with local fresh veggies. Will definitely return.
