I go to the chaser a lot. This was a meet with a friend and we sat in the garden as the weather was lovely. Service was good, all servers attentive and friendly. The food was nice. I had been 4 days before and had a lovely salmon dish so I had it again but it wasn’t as nice. The salmon fillet was much smaller than the piece before and there was no dill, potatoes a bit mushy and overdone. The lunch service I had only a few days before was much better presented. Staff also didn’t know all the elements of a dish, but did ask the chefs for me but I felt a bit awkward asking questions. We also didn’t know what the soup and pie were that day. These are minor things but can be easily rectified by ensuring table staff are well informed of every element. Menu was nice. It used to change more often but now is quite repetitive. There was a new pork dish on though that hadn’t been there before. There are no covid restrictions now at all and no masks required or worn by staff. I’m fine with this but my companion was more concerned. The garden is lovely, comfy chairs with cushions. Music was sometimes a bit intrusive… for such a lovely setting id rather hear the church bells and birds. The intrusion of music makes me think of awful trips to macdonalds with my children when they were younger.. not a time I relished. Overall a nice experience. One I will do again as it is local to me and I go often, not just for dinner but lunch and the lovely breakfasts too… especially welcome after a walk over the fields behind with my dog.

Located in a beautiful corner of West Kent, The Chaser has always been a welcoming pub and restaurant for locals and visitors. The food is great, the puddings are better, and the beer is always varied and interesting. Good for dogs too!

Social distancing and CV precautions were excellent and inspired confidence.

The beer garden on a sunny evening was a wonderful setting, the only improvement would be to do without the music, which was too loud (for me, perhaps others not so)

The food was up to its normal standard and enjoyable. As we were driving I couldn't sample any of the alcoholic drinks.

Very nice service and a decent menu with well spaced tables. Atmosphere and ambiance was OK - no problems but the area where we were seated (formerly a courtyard) feels a bit dead. Sensible prices. We have been many times and it is a reliable if unspectacular option.

What a lovely way to celebrate our 13th and our friends' 63rd anniversaries. We visited the nearby Ightham Mote and then drove the short distance to The Chasers Inn. It wasn't easy to park because of a lorry delivering new parasols but once we'd sorted that out we went to a table in the garden and spent a couple of hours eating good, food, drinking some excellent wine and being served by happy, friendly and efficient staff. When my desert was a little delayed, the manager apologised and got it sorted immediately. No wonder this Inn is kept busy, even on a Monday lunchtime. If we're back in the area I'm sure we'll be booking again.

Not as good as it was with a poor menu & not really a restaurant now only pub grub. Drinks were expensive but no descent glasses or well presented so won’t be returning.
