See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Despite the colour wash exterior, the building dates from 1683 and was originally a cottage for local farm workers under the Manor of Sholden (later licensed as a pub in 1836).

Entering through the front door you find yourself in a contemporary-styled pub with the large central bar surrounded by the main bar area and a small snug to the right.

At the back there is a large patio/garden overlooking the grounds of Walmer Cricket Club and Deal Hockey Club.

The real ale offering features Doom Bar and London Pride and varying guests, often from Canterbury Ales and Angels & Demons.

Traditional "Pub Grub" is served from Ploughman's lunches to cottage pie and lamb shank. On Sunday they serve up a Sunday Roast.

A variety of entertainment is on offer including quizzes, karaoke, live music, pool & darts.
