“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.”

Our opening hours are Monday to Saturday from 12 pm to 11 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 10 pm. Our food serving times are Monday to Saturday from 12 pm to 9:30 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 7 pm.

  • We had 2 for 1 Mexican, chicken fajitas and chilli steak burritos. Both were absolutely delicious, and such great value for money. Very friendly and efficient staff. Can't wait to go back.

    4 star ratingHuge portions.... A group of 10+ visited on a weekday lunch time. We had pre-ordered food. The food was delicious and portions very generous. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    The only disappointing thing was no lunch menu so there are no options of lighter things like sandwiches.

    Lovely place and great food.

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.
