Popped here the other Sunday after my cricket team had enjoyed a facile win at Knole Paddock, and was suitably impressed. There was decent service, a good choice of ales, an attractive barmaid and a nice ambience. On the down side, Shep Neame beers are hardly cheap but it is pleasant to drink in a neat little boozer rather than a soulless sports club after a game.

The food & menu need some more effort, but the ale is all top notch. Lovely pub nicely situated for refreshments after a leisurely ramble in Knole Park.

Been here three times now since the start of the year and each time itís got progressively worse. While the menu is interesting, the homemade soup very good, the rest is below par and the service a joke.

Long waits as standard and food rarely comes out at the same time if you are in a group. It's often cold when it does. You also feel like you are made to wait just long enough to have to order another drink to go with your meal. Ask for ketchup or vinegar and you get a communal bottle - not very hygienic!

As for price, some items are OK, but others are a bit excessive. Greek salad with half a baguette for £8.50Ö guessing it was flown in from Greece and the price reflects its airfare!

The staff are friendly enough, but not very switched on. Last time we visited the landlady and barmaid both cleaned the same table within a minute or two of one another!

Not the worst pub in the world, but put off enough that I wonít be going back any time soon.

Shepherd Neame house set in a lovely location. Tried the Masterbrew & Spitfire both of which were very good. Food was very good but the system was a bit odd ... we were a large group of walkers and we booked in advance saying most people would be having sandwiches / soups type of meals. As a result, they wouldn't let the one or two people who wanted order a roast dinner. Apart from that they were very well organized and helpful. They've got a nice cat too.

Mr Miles is a tad harsh.I had a lovely lunch up there today a couple of Tonbridge Ales. Lovely sunny day and a super location. The sandwich was lovely and crusty and a decent side salad.

More importantly the beer was as clear as a bell and in tip top condition. Not seen the Rustic too often but its worth a quaff or two anytime.
