Mid afternoon on a glorious sunny day, not too busy as just missed the lunchtime trade with a couple of family groups still left but with impressively well behaved children made for a pleasant and relaxed visit. I sat at at table by the roadside seated area and enjoyed my beers.

Came here after a good circular walk through the animal park and along the Royal Military Canal. Strange to see giraffes and ostriches in the Kent countryside. Good Sunday lunch feel to the pub - mix of eaters and drinkers,

Thurs evening fairly quiet . Nearly have to leave the pub early as Keith Harris and Orville's 80s hit comes on the jukebox - swift work from the barmaid saves the pub from rapidly emptying.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00GoodGood condition, usual hoppy bite.
