A little after 6pm, a game of cricket was being played on the village green and the pub was packed with diners, and more waiting outside for tables to become available. We found a small table in the bar area and had some beer and Mexican Garlic Bread. Service was friendly, fast and efficient. We eventually gave up our small table to a hungry family of four. I did not make a note of all the beers on offer but I think there were a couple from the 1648 Brewery.

We arrived soon after 12:00, and managed to secure a table for lunch. The place soon filled up, but the service and food was excellent.

The pub is found in Bearsted, Kent, ME14 4EJ.

Located on one of the prettiest village greens in England. The pub itself can be traced back to 1665 in an agreement between Daniel Birkman (a distiller), a Thomas Buffield and Christopher Longley, a gentleman of Bearsted. Mr Longley was paid £200 for: ‘All that messuage or tenement not known by the signe of the Oake Inn, one stable, two gardens, one orchard, one piece or parcel of land belonging containing estimated two acres’. Local word of mouth maintains that, historically, parts of the Oak (now the kitchens) were once a holding Gaol for the local courtroom. Reported in November 2016 as sold by Village Green Restaurants to Shepherd Neame.

We have visited this pub 14 times, seen 15 different beers and tried 11 of them.
