This delightful rosy-bricked innstands overlooking Chislehurst Common at the heart of historic Chislehurst village. The current Tigers Head country pub dates back to the 18th century but stands on the site of a much older inn, owned by the Walsingham family, dating back to the 15th century. Attractively located facing the village green, the focus of Chislehurst community life for centuries, The Tigers Head has witnessed feasts, festivals, coronation celebrations and even cockfighting, which took place in the Cockpit on the green, until the practice was abolished in 1834.

To the rear, this historic country pub is bordered by the National Trust’s Petts Wood and Hawkwood Estate, an oasis of peace and tranquillity, while just east of The Tigers Head is the lovely Scadbury Park Nature Reserve, where the Walsingham family’s moated manor house once stood.

Perfect for country walks, at The Tigers Head a good old-fashioned welcome awaits visitors, as well as heart-warming traditional pub food, including seasonal specials using local produce, Sunday roasts and tantalizing desserts, along with an impressive list of fine wines and real ales.
