I went here with friends on their wedding anniversary. What a great experience. A lovely pub which disguises the great food. We had a lovely meal, the food, atmosphere and service were excellent. Well worth a visit.

Went for evening meal, had tortillas to share as a starter and chicken quesadilla main all very nice. Good staff as ever, prices may seem steep to some but it is West Malling after all.
