See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A friendly local pub located in a small hamlet situated on an ancient trackway, whose name derives from Saxon origins and means 'Paeddel's Enclosure'. This local public house was a regular for Battle of Britain pilots based at Hawkinge and is notable for its numerous name changes. Now known as the 'Cat and Custard', is has previously been the 'Red Lion', the 'Sprawling Cat', the 'Rampant Cat' and the ‘Romping Cat Pot' The interior is ordained with Battle of Britain photos and other items from pilots in the war and is well worth the drive through the lane or the walk from the Battle of Britain Museum in Hawkinge.
