I was really excited to see that it was vegan Tuesday however my dish of the cauliflower steak didn't include the contents stated on the menu - potato fries, instead of sweet potato, no salsa or plum tomatoes and questionable that there was chimichurri on the steak however the food was lovely all the same. The ambience was really gorgeous though and it was so nice to be able to go out to dine with friends so altogether I would go again.
Food was absolutely fantastic. Staff helpful and friendly. Service very good. Practicing good Covid safety 🙂
Amazing food, and the staff were lovely, would recommend the little brown jug to everyone I no.
We were a little shocked to arrive and to be told that as we had a dog, we were to sit in the marquee (heated). The policy had changed from previous visits. Inside the marquee, it was heated. The floor was a bit dirty with food and the service was a little slow (but very friendly). The food was nice but did feel a little mass produced. What stood out was the friendly service and effort made to make your stay enjoyable.
Went for a roast dinner but wouldn't go back again.
Roast potato's weren't fresh, the portion of stuffing was pretty much non existent and the vegetables came out in a very small dish
We ordered Roast Beef. It was cold/tepid at best. No option as to how well the beef was cooked - it was tasteless and so rare that it still had a pulse. Perhaps that explains why the food was cold. The service was excellent and staff were very nice and sympathetic and didn't charge for one of the meals as a result. However we went there for a good meal and not a cheap one. Great pub but will not be returning for a meal.
The staff really made our meal. They were all so friendly and helpful. The marquee was great. And huge meal portions. A great trip
Yet another fabulous roast. LBJ never let us down. Excellent service, friendly staff and of course socially distanced tables so keeping us all safe.
From the first greeting to the departing gesture the team could not be faulted for their attentiveness throughout, as well as helping with a future booking. On top of all of that the food was brilliant!
Lovely place and nice staff, couldn’t understand why a side of peas was £3.95 and my partners extra bacon was £1..?
Covid rules were strictly followed, which made you feel safe. Staff very friendly, food was delicious.
Really lovely, welcoming pub. Staff couldn’t have been nicer and the food was delicious. One of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a while.
Lovely lunch after a wet muddy walk. Helpful friendly staff.
We were very impressed with the excellent Covid measures taken. Tables very well spaced out, one way system and all staff had masks on. Felt safe and greatly enjoyed our lunch out!
Great way to celebrate our ninth grandchild! And the three course vegan meal for my wife was superb! Thanks to Anna our host for giving us a quiet table by a fire (the flames of which kept burning, without being tended, the whole 2+ hrs we were there!!!)
25% off, then charged £27 service charge......need i say more.
Always good quality food and a nice comfortable feel. We’ve tried the majority of items and have been really happy with all of them. My favourite is a pie with shortcrust top.
In these Covid restrictive days it’s all about security, I suppose but that does tend to make us all feel like leper’s a bit. The food was ok. There was a nasty big bone in my fish pie which I managed to find! And secondly, please don’t butter the bread. Not everyone wants butter on their bread or even someone handling it at that level.
Great food, great service. Felt really Covid safe too, Gaz and Alice are doing an amazing job!
A nice relaxed environment and pleasant food despite the Covid limitations
Always tasty. We all loved sharing the Nachos, really delicious. Also, loved the calamari, Mac n cheese and chicken main. Will return.
Lovely pub with delicious food. Would definitely recommend to a friend
Love coming back to this delightful pub. The food and drink are exceptional!! Combined with the friendly and excellent service, as well as the wonderful management (Gaz and Alice are amazing!) I will continue to drive 40 minutes to have a guaranteed fantastic visit.
Attractive pub in rural location. Sat inside in spacious and well spaced dining area. Service excellent. Food very good apart from some strange un-appetising looking dry 'black new potatoes' served with or fish.
The ambience was lovely wasn’t over crowded in any way the staff were amazing we were so pleased we decided to come here as we were not disappointed the food was delicious and came out swiftly we were not left hanging at any point we were made to feel at home and would highly recommend, we will certainly be back for more 👌🏻
Social distancing is great waited at the door to check in on nhs screen and test it was explained all about their one way system and if you needed the loo etc. Staff and Food as usual was 100% . We always enjoy our day out in Penshurst finishing with lunch here. The only negative thing I would say is they are slightly on the expensive side, although I know you get what you pay for and the quality is exceptional . I do feel it’s a little over priced.
Loved vegan night! The masala curry was delicious and service was great.
Really excellent. The food was amazing (thank you for vegan Tuesdays!!), the service was brilliant and it’s such a lovely place. Their COVID processes were fab, it felt really safe. Booked again for week after next 😊
Incredible food and the the eat out to help out prices it was outstanding value. Very nice pub and great service.
Lovely food. Helpful staff. Pub had cosy feel but with plenty of space.
So pleased that I decided to pick this restaurant on OpenTable. I had never eaten in the area before so didn't know which to pick. This was an excellent choice. Lovely old building and indoors was just as delightful. Food was excellent and prompt service.
When paying £2.50 for a couple of slices of bread, i really don't expect spread with it... where was the butter?
Great food, great experience would certainly recommend
Always perfect - love this place
From entering the service was brilliant, ran through all new procedures in very customer centric way. Brilliant service with top quality food also
We had a lovely evening @ The Little Brown Jug. All restrictions were in place & upheld.
Great service and great food. Good restrictions in place for Covid. Would definitely recommend.
We booked a late lunch, 2pm, it wasn't very busy. Ordered two lasagne, they were lukewarm when we got them, we asked if we could get them warmed up, the waitress said they would do two new meals which was fine, apart from it took between 25 - 30 minutes for the new lasagne's to arrive! Unfortunately where the chef had tried to make sure these ones were hot they were burnt on the top, I mentioned it to the waitress when she cleared the plates, she was apologetic, but that was it. We had two pate starters and two lasagne with a medium glass of red, bottle of water, diet coke and two coffees, the bill was £65 so not a cheap pub lunch. I've eaten in the little brown jug many times before when I lived local to it, but this was a disappointing experience. I would still recommend the pub as I'd like to think this was a one off?
Had a lovely evening. Felt very safe in Covid times, staff were attentive and considerate.
Very good limited menu possibly due to covid issues.
