The Pub

One of the nicest pubs in Biggin Hill and with a lot of history. Book early if you fancy a Sunday lunchtime roast, perhaps even two weeks in advance.

  3. No air conditioning inside and they had one fan (which was facing the staff behind the bar – not the customers). Also the baby changing unit is in the ladies toilet which is no good for single dads.

    Food seems to get worse every time I visit and this time there was no cutlery on the table.

    Please, please accept this as constructive feedback. A few tweaks can restore this pub to its former glory but actions are needed fast.

    Thanks
