My type of country pub friendly (staff and customers), not snooty, community minded and fun, honest and knowledgable about the area, , historical bits round the pub were great, a variety of interesting pictures on the walls, attractive dark beams, cosy and a bit dark just how proper pubs should be. No dreadful contrived and boring Homes & Garden mags that nobody reads to be seen, thank god. Has a nice quirky, rural down-to-earth feel, and clearly the people who run it are proud of its history. The restaurant looked perfect, very old, one of the best I have seen. They give you for £2 a haunted tour booklet which was great, and the booklet was very enjoyable and funny in parts. Haven't tried the food, but who cares, I would eat here anyway. I will go here for a Sunday Lunch one day and it would be a nice place to stop at around Christmas time too and walk round Pluckley's footpaths afterwards. To get it completely Uber Perfick and a 5 star rating from me, they need to stock Kent Crisps (which are very tasty) and lower the music a bit as it wasn't always easy to hear my friend. That's about it.
