Events & Celebrations

Whenever you have reason to celebrate, it’s only natural to head to the pub (it’s human nature – isn’t it?)

Bucket-loads of space to spread out in the pub, fab food & drinks, private spaces, and plenty of bedrooms just upstairs? Well, that makes our pub pretty much perfect for any (and every) toast-able occasion.

If you’re throwing a big birthday bash, have recently got engaged (ooh, congrats to you) or you’ve been elected to organise the company knees-up – look no further. As well as our just-right-for-a-pint bar, we’ve also got Penshurst room – which gives off serious outside/inside vibes – Hadlow Room, which is bob-on for meetings – and bookable huts outside too.

With our hotel-y type bedrooms just above the pub, your guests haven’t far to travel to rest their heads after a night of partying, or a day of brainstorming. A cracking breakfast in the pub the next morning will set them up, ready them for the day ahead.

If you’re looking to break out of the boardroom, book a quiet spot in the pub for a breakfast brainstorm or brainstorm incredible ideas with your team over coffee, then this is the spot for you.

Also, swap the teapots for wine bottles and you’ve got yourself a blooming lovely space to host a private dinner.
