Welcome to The Rifle Volunteers, a traditional Real Ale pub where good beer and good conversation take centre stage. You'll not find televisions or juke boxes within these ragstone walls, just a warm welcome, superbly kept beer and a relaxed jivial atmosphere!

A Goachers Ale house we are proud to work in collaboration with this local brewery and exclusively stock thier beers!

You can read more about Goachers Brewery and the beers we stock on The Beer page.

We also enjoy the Goachers Green Hop at the end of September and Old 1066 Ale in Winter. Both ales are only brewed in limited supply so keep an eye on our Facebook for news on their arrival.

We serve exceptional local Cider produced by Turners of Marden using only Kentish apples.

There are more unusual fruit ciders (Rhubarb, Cherry, Pear and Apple Pie) dependent on the season.

In addition to the above there are a selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks.

Please see our Opening Details page for up to date information on opening hours and polices.
