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

A most welcoming and friendly RAFA club, it consistently wins CAMRA local and regional awards, being the local CAMRA branch club of the year for ten consecutive years. This culminated in 2016 in winning the National Club of the Year competition and being a finalist in 2017 and 2018. It always serves at least one local ale, often from such as Three Legs, Gun or Rother Valley. This is complemented by nationally sourced ales. There is always at least one dark beer; altogether there are five handpumps. The comprehensive range of upcoming beers is listed on a blackboard behind the bar. The club holds regular beer festivals in June and September in its large function room and many social events such as jazz nights, quizzes, folk evenings and meat raffles, notably on Fridays. It is very popular among its members and CAMRA members are always welcome. The club boasts an interesting collection of RAF memorabilia. The pictures of presentations show members with Club Head Steward Karen outside with the national trophy for 2016 and presentations of further local awards for the years 2016 to 2019.
