Early afternoon visit, a place with potential but today the place had more than its fair share of people who do not seem to know how to talk quietly. It was nice and peaceful after they left. The sandwiches that were delivered from the shop next door looked appetising.

Mid evening visit after a 246 bus from its sister pub of the same name in Hayes. Immediately welcoming on a miserable wet winter's night, lightly loaded as seems yet to entrance the burghers of Westerham but it will. The micropub magic worked and I was soon in conversation with an ex farrier. Opening hours are expected to change in the new year.
