Join us for a drink

Local Real Ales, Good Wines & Light Bites

A cosy and intimate setting by our fire; a relaxed and friendly atmosphere greets guests in the Rifle Bar. The bar boasts low ceilings with original oak beams, a snug and stocked fireplace and plenty of space to settle in for a drink. 

We normally run 4 real ales, Harveys from East Sussex, the other 3 being different brews from the local Tonbridge, Westerham and Whitstable breweries;  the draught cider is produced in Biddenden and our Curious Brew lager from Tenterden,  all Kent.  Only the second lager, plus Guinness hail from farther field.

Our water comes from Garden of England in Horsmonden!

Wine, we buy a good range of both grapes and prices, from a family owned wine importer in Horsmonden. Fruit juices we also purchase locally, from Owlets in Lamberhurst, and both locals, regulars and visitors can enjoy their tipple in the warmth and atmosphere of the Rifle Bar.


Why not stay for lunch or dinner after your drink? We can take telephone bookings but our kitchen is well equipped to handle walk-ins and we look forward to welcoming you!

Beer Garden

Especially during the Summer, the traditional beer garden is both peaceful and beautiful. Perfect for families!
