“Our American smoker gives the authentic flavours and deliciously tender meat. So why not come and soak up the smells and enjoy the decor of our traditional Kentish pub with a twist.”

  • A very nice evening, all staff were very efficient and friendly, our food was very nice and i have rebooked for next week with a different party, my only comment is that we found it very noisy and the tables were too close together but as I said I’ve rebooked so I recommend The Hooden

  • Thank you for saving our night out last night!

    After being let down late yesterday afternoon for our planned Christmas meal and night out you stepped in and found room for 20 people. The food was lovely, the atmosphere great, the staff very friendly and the price very reasonable.

    Next year we'll book with you straight away. Wish we had done that this year.

Local suppliers, seasonal, fresh…

Explore our food and drinks menu, built around the best produce from local suppliers using all the surrounding countryside and coastline has to offer. Seasonality is key, which is why all our menus are constantly evolving throughout the year, from beautifully fresh fish and ripe fruit & veg in Summer to slow smoked meats and piping hot pies and hot pots in the Winter.

There is always something happening!

From Beer festivals to quiz nights we always try to keep everyone entertained. Our small borough of Willesborough has a fantastic community feel and we want to help keep that. We are always interested in what you would like to see going on so please feel free to contact us and tell us what you would like.
