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

Traditional country-style pub dating from 1673 situated near the town centre. It has two bars, a low-ceilinged tap room featuring an 1880s Dartford Brewery mirror and a larger bar leading to a conservatory where meals are served Thursday to Sunday lunchtimes and Thursday to Saturday evenings. A large beer garden leads off the conservatory. The Fastrack "B" bus stops just across the road to the rear of the garden, where barbeques are hosted in the summer. There is a thriving open quiz on Monday evenings, quick quiz on Thursdays and seasonal crib night on Tuesdays. Small car park adjacent to the pub.
