Pub Photo

A most attractive building, parts of which date back to 1368. It became a pub in 1601 and the first landlord was Thomas Hart, a tenant of Pendell Manor near Bletchingley. As well as brewing and selling its own beer, at one time it also served as a post office and blacksmith. There are several original beams throughout and a large inglenook in the restaurant. The lower bar also benefits from a real fire. Look for the gaiter of a former pirate turned smuggler, John Trenchman, who died in the cellar of the pub after being pursued by the King�s revenue men. Legend has it that if this gaiter is removed, his ghost returns to haunt the pub. His earthly remains lie in Godstone churchyard. A former Westerham Brewery house until 1965, it passed to Ind Coope, later to become part of Allied Breweries until it was sold to Greene King in the late 90s and is now owned by Hawthorne Leisure. The pub has a deserved reputation for good food, which is sold from 12=9 daily both in the restaurant and bar (booking recommended), as well as for its excellent beer. The bar area is low ceilinged and very cosy with high back settles. There is a pleasant garden at the rear. The pub acts as the tap for the nearby Godstone Brewers brewery and the gust beer will often be from them as well..
