The Star and Eagle, Goudhurst
This pub dates back to the 14th Century and was reputedly once an ancient monastery. There is evidence of vaulted stonework in some parts that date back to that period. It’s situated at the top of the hill below the church. The notorious “Hawkhurst Gang” of smugglers made it their HQ whilst robbing, raiding and terrorising the surrounding areas.
