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

A weatherboarded 2-storey grade II listed building whose history stretches back around 200 years. Inside, the low beams mean that taller visitors must take note of the "duck or grouse" signs, but the pub is otherwise surprisingly spacious. It is believed that the building was not a long-term prison, but more likely an overnight stop for prisoners being transported from London to Maidstone. The pub is located close to the Battle of Britain airfield, and contains various porcelain items and other memorabilia. Walking to the pub down Jail Lane from the main road through Biggin Hill is not recommended because the road becomes narrow without a footpath - use the R8 bus instead.
