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

Welcoming village local with a smuggling history, situated just inland from Herne Bay. Parts of the pub date back 400 years, and it has been run by the same landlord for 16 years. The comfortable saloon bar has a low ceiling, with birch thatching, hanging hops and wood panelling. The public bar has a pool table and dartboard. The garden has a bat and trap pitch and hanging flower baskets. Beers from Shepherd Neame's microbrewery are occasionally available. Regular buses pass the door.
