This split-level pub is found down a track off the A22 (there is a pub sign at the end of the track on the main road). It was originally built as a forge and hammer mill in 1561 later becoming a wire and nail mill and is reputed to have supplied these items for St Paul's Cathedral in London. In addition, bronze cannons were produced, and in the 17th century it was a flour mill. Since then the building has been used as a women's refuge and a place for members of the RAF to stay in the World Wars. Today the pub overlooks a lake used by a water skiing club and there is a patio with tables outside by the water. Inside there are three levels with tables, all of which can be used by drinkers and diners, and it is reputedly haunted by Phil, see board by the top entrance. Food is a feature at this pub, with all food being home made and ingredients being bought locally where possible. The pub opens at 9am for breakfast, which is served till 11.30am, then the main menu starts at midday and is served all day until 9.45pm. Although the pub mainly opens for breakfast at 9am it is licensed from this time so it is possible to just go in for a drink. There are usually three guest beers, two from the Charles Wells list and one from Westerham. The pub may occasionally shut early on a winter's evening if there are no customers, but you are likely to find it bursting at the seams on sunny weekend lunchtimes in the summer. There are occasional live music nights. The accommodation consists of six en-suite boutique rooms.
