Have been looking to come here for a number of years and finally made it, well, we were not disappointed, from our arrival to departure, everything was perfect. The service was super attentive and we were well looked after. We had the Carvery and a dessert and it was absolutely fantastic, very tasteful and plentiful. We will definetly be returning again to sample your daily menu and I will recommend you to others for a visit.

Very poor slow service for the 2nd time eating in this pub. 1st time we arrived at 7.30pm and got our main course at 9.30pm.
On Sunday we were seated on a small round table in front of the servery which was actually the walkway to the carvery. We were constantly nudged by patrons going to get their lunch. It became very embarrassing as many remarks and apologies were made by the customers.
We were unable to stay for a 2nd drink or a pudding. The response upon complaining was that a manager was unavailable and a message would be left for him to call us back. As yet 3 days later, no phone call.
On both occasions we booked a table in advance so no excuse!
Very disappointing, we will not return again.

Had a family lunch here and was very pleased with the whole experience and so were all our party. Great friendly service and lovely surroundings. Lovely out on the terrace for a look at the old Aylesford bridge, although not brave enough to eat out there in October. Food was superb and good value. Nice selection of beers and wine. Would definitely recommend this olde worlde pub in a lovely historic village setting. You can park in the high street if you are lucky but there are 2 car parks at the end of the high street, just a few minutes walk away.

Funny smell inside. Ate outside instead - nice view of river. Food slow coming (45 mins). Had fish and chips - fish okay but chips had funny aftertaste. Service was friendly and helpful. Menu not over-priced.

Unfortunately my meal was extremely over cooked or had been reheated a number of times. It really shouldn’t have got to the table. A waiter asked how the meals were to which I replied OK to mine and explained. He suggested getting another but I had lost faith the younger waiter appeared and dealt with the issue very well I obviously left the meal and was not charged for it. Other meals were better but still over cooked. Very disappointed as we had taken someone there because of previous positive experiences this was our first negative experience with food and hopefully our last.

Booked for the Sunday carvery after a recommendation and wasn’t disappointed. Food was really good and fantastic value. The staff made you very welcome, so I will be going back. If you haven’t been, book yourself in!

The steak was amazing the duck spring roll was lovely, just wish the table had been bigger for the steak which comes in hot stone. Not comfortable with limited space.

Having booked the table via your site and received two reminders, I was surprised to find no table for four either laid up or available when we arrived on time.
We were offered two “bistro” round tables side by side.
The server was rushed off his feet and it was necessary to go to the bar ourselves for drinks.
It was a pity that there was not more rice with the thai green curry, rather than naan bread since my husband is gluten free so could not eat it anyway. One of our party said his curry was cold as it had been put out on another table we were eventually offered before the rest of the guests were served.
This was our second visit. The first time it was much nicer which is why we returned.
