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

Attractive and traditional pub with open fireplaces, dating from 1565, and named following a visit by Queen Elizabeth I. The pub is situated in the centre of an historic country village but is less than 20 minutes by bus from Bromley or Orpington. Charles Darwin lived at nearby Down House (English heritage), and was very likely a patron. The four handpumps normally include Fuller's London Pride, plus two local beers, usually including one from Westerham, plus one other beer sourced nationally. There are several dining areas benefiting from a daily menu which includes home-made pies. There are also regular curry nights, and from Thursday to Sunday mornings, hot refreshments and cakes are available. Last orders for food are 30 minutes before the food times shown. The pub is popular with walkers and locals all year round. Bromley CAMRA Pub of the Year for 2014.
