The Royal Oak, Pett

Reopened a month or so ago after a major refurbishment necessitated by the state the previous management left it in. As already stated, the team from the Queen's Head, Icklesham are now in charge.
Harvey's Best is 3 a pint and is, in my opinion the best to be found in any of the nearby local pubs. Certainly the clearest. 3 other beers on handpump including Old Speckled Hen and 1 of the Old Dairy brews.
Four of us had lunch there last Sunday. 3 roast beefs and 1 cod and chips. Generous portions and tasty food. The roasts were 8.95, can't recall the price of the fish, but with a drink apiece the bill was 50. Good value.
The place feels a bit "new" for a village local but that's because of the amount of work that was needed to restore it. No doubt the newness will wear off.
Highly Recommended

The pub was sold at auction a couple of months ago. Local press reports say the buyers are a consortium of local businessmen including the owner of the Queen's Head at Icklesham. So, watch this space for a re-opening in Spring 2011?

The White Lion, Tenterden

Had a nice pint of Jennings Cumberland before a very pleasant Sunday lunch with friends. The service was a bit on the slow side as there was a significant time gap between placing the order and the arrival of the food. We wondered whether the kitchen was awaiting the arrival of a larger party so all could have freshly cooked vegetables? We were offered (& accepted!) a bottle of wine for the price of 2 glasses. Food was very good, except that I didn't get the requested "rare" roast beef, tho' one seldom does. Overall, good value for money - 10.95 each for the 2 course lunch, and they reimburse you with the cost of the parking in the "Pay & display" at the rear of the pub, if you are dining. Will go again, but watch out for large prebooked parties!
