According to local publicity there should have been no buses between Willesborough and here today so when one turned up I decided to catch it and come here. Fairly busy as usual, exceptionally friendly bar staff made this a worthwhile visit. I took advantage of the £4.99 steak and chips again. I did not make a note of all the ales on sale but there was a fair selection from the Marstons range.

Early evening visit for a beer or 2 before we venture opposite for a curry. Fairly quiet and relaxed atmosphere with plenty of tables to choose from. Usual beers on offer seems to be the norm since recent refurb.

Early evening visit and quite busy. Bar staff were friendly and attentive. I thought the steak and chips was good value at £4.99 but managed to get it for a bargain £3.99. I did not make a list of all the beers on offer but there was a good selection from the Marston's range.

Late evening and final pub on our Ashford periphery tour. Not too busy as we've missed the early evening crowds and still in time to order a meal. Usual beer range on offer.
