The pub is found in Sutton Valence, Kent, ME17 3AP.

Historically this was a Courage Brewery house and well into the modern era it featured separate Public and Saloon bars, separated by a tiny ‘Jug & Bottle’ bar. The former entrance to the Jug & Bottle can be seen bricked-up in the photo, with the one-time Saloon bar to the right of that doorway. It has now been completely refurbished with comfortable seating in a single, large room. Restaurant in a separate area to the rear of the bar. Private function room upstairs with its own bar.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 4 different beers and tried 3 of them.
