Just had an amazing meal. Love everything about this pub but especially the food which is so much better than the usual pub grub. The Christmas menu is so good. I had rib eye steak with cottage pie and red wine jus. My wife had the rack of lamb. Starters and sweets too excelled

My husband and I went here today for an impromptu Sunday lunch, and some time together whilst our 6 month old son was with the grandparents!! The food is absolutely gorgeous, the staff are very friendly and the prices are reasonable. Set in a quiet part of East Peckham, with the river running through the garden, it's an idyllic location...

And won't be the last. This is a lovely pub. Not a restaurant. Not a gastropub. Just a pub. And whilst not a gastropub, the food was excellent. We had the fish & chips and the ham, egg & chips and both were well presented and delicious. The Harvey's was well kept and I wish I could have tried more.... More

We have been here several times now since our first visit in the summer. The food is consistently good, cooked to order and to a very high standard. We are always now recognised and greeted by the owner which is a nice touch and makes you feel welcome. The menu is small but that generally means the food is fresh... More

Great Kentish pub by the side of a mill stream teeming with fish. Nice atmosphere and friendly welcome from the landlord (I assume he was). Good choice of beers. I had the Man of Kent special burger, which was the best I have ever had - really. It was a struggle to finish it. My partner had the cod, which... More

The Man of Kent is a gem of a pub with good food (you must book Sunday lunch or you will be disappointed), good ales and excellent staff. Situated beside the River Bourne it is a relaxing place to spend some time. It offers normal 'pub grub' with excellent chips as well as restaurant food and it caters for children.... More

Friendly and welcoming riverside pub. We were tempted by food and were not disappointed. Home made food was fresh and tasty.

We sometimes call in here for a drink, which is lovely to sit by the river and watch the wildlife. We ate here a number of years ago and it was mediocre. We had supper here last night, and ot was excellent . I had the crispy duck with salad as a starter, my husband has asparagus wrapped in Serrano... More

Met up with an old friend after 42 years! Pub was an excellent place to meet. Situated along the river, cosy, friendly and characterful. Delicious Crispy Duck salad - the best I've tasted. Lovely low ceiling, wooden beams loads of atmoshere and very friendly efficient service. A great place.
