'Awarded Pub of the Year 2014, by the Bromley section of CAMRA, and included in the good beer guides for 9 years (just included in 2021), it is an independant family run 16th century traditional country pub in the centre of Downe Village, a short drive or bus journey from Orpington or Bromley. The public bar (Darwin Bar, yes Charles Darwin himself drank here) has three roaring log fires (in the winter), along with leather chesterfields, a piano and a darts board. It also has three small restaurants as well as a small snug bar for quiet, more intimate drinks. For the summer, it has a large walled patio / garden area currently covered by a marquee, perfect for relaxing after those country rambles. Bar Snacks, full menu and  specials available daily, made from localy sourced produce.'
