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

A cosy warm and inviting hillside pub with two bars - The Library and the Catherine. The latter is named after the mistress of Napoleon III who stayed here when he was exiled to Chislehurst in 1870. Although the pub are rightly proud of their food - with lobster and steaks being specialities - the pub emphasised their commitment to real ale with the addition of a fourth handpump in 2016 on which guest beers are sometimes provided. A well-appointed function room and wine bar were opened in the grounds in May 2014, with dining available Thursday to Saturday evening from 7 - 11pm and on Sundays from noon to 6pm.
