The sleepy village of Smarden is set against the backdrop of rolling fields and farms. This quaint little English village has a long illustrious history; the 800 year old St Michael's church sits in the centre of the village, in front of this old church is The Flying Horse or ‘The Flyer’ as it is fondly called locally, which is named after a racecourse which was located across from the pub, this closed down in 1863 but the pub remains firmly open today.  

This charming little pub is full character, with it’s old oak beams and it’s rustic country interior.

So why not grab a comfy seat in front of the roaring log fire, sipping on rich wine or a smokey whiskey, listening to the crackles of the fire, while keeping warm and toasty in the winter or why not enjoy an ice cold beer or fruity cider, sitting out on the patio enjoying the warm summer sun while watching the world go by.

So, whether you have been exploring the quirky village of Smarden, rambling across the rolling fields, cycling along the windy country lanes or just fancy something to eat and drink then The Flying Horse is well worth a visit and they look forward to seeing you soon!
