“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.”

  • The place looks amazing since it's been brought back from the ashes, very impressed. Also my steak skewer was perfectly cooked. I'll definitely be a regular again!

    Awesome, def worth the wait. We have 4 different meals, Brisket and Burnt ends, according to the hubby, was 'totally Incredible, the flavours were so intense'. Boys had burgers, and big smiles, me the veggie butternut squash salad, - really really tasty. Its been a long time, but so worth the wait. Feels Just like the Hooden always did, but with bells on. Can't wait to come back, soon.

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.
