Born in about 1552, this charming and traditional Old English Pub is hidden away in the Kentish countryside, between Sevenoaks and Tonbridge. The low, oak beamed ceilings and open fireplaces set the scene for a cosy visit during the winter months.

Our food is homemade, freshly prepared on the premises with produce from local butchers and suppliers. The majority of our ales are from local brewers. Whether visiting for a drink in the Rifle Bar, or to dine in our restaurant, or perhaps a special occasion, our friendly staff look forward to welcoming you!

...and, at the end of a tranquil walk in the countryside, the Kentish Rifleman is frequently the finishing line for families, friends and dogs.
