We stayed at the Dog and Bear for the weekend of my daughter's wedding along with members of our families. We cannot fault the hotel in any way- the rooms were lovely, as was the food on Saturday evening and the breakfasts were superb. However it was the quality of service which really made our stay. The staff could not... More

Stayed here for one night , very welcoming host, beautifully appointed room (no 21) with large comfortable bed and lovely en-suite. Had dinner and breakfast in the quaint dining room. Both meals were excellent with very attentive and friendly staff. Have booked for lunch on Christmas Eve with our family we enjoyed it so much.

This is a typical double fronted Kent pub. Bar in the middle, and areas to both sides. One side as is very typically 21st century, has the area dedicated to dining. The other side is more of a traditional pub with a wall mounted tv and games area. Perhaps not contemporary, but it is offering function over form, and does... More

Breakfast was top notch and the staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely staying there an extra time we are in... More

what a pleasure to stay in such a welcoming Hotel. We were only staying one night but found all the staff to be so helpful and friendly. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Well done, hopefully get a chance to go back again some time.

We stayed here for one night on a Saturday, the car park could have been easier to find. maybe there should be instructions on the website on how to find it. we paid £80 b&b, in a standard room, which isn't unreasonable but then again I don't think it was entirely justified. Our room, no.4 had the smallest door and... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in Oct 2014,we stayed in the best room in the hotel which had a four poster bed and was spotlessly clean. We had a meal in the restaurant on Saturday night and it was very good as was the breakfast. The staff are very polite and efficient, and we wouldn't hesitate... More

Perhaps, unusually, I arrived by train, just 33 mins from London's St Pancras International on the HS1 to Ashford International where a slow train was conveniently waiting on the adjoining platform to take me back 2 stops (10 mins) to Lenham station and a leisurely 10 min stroll to the Dog & Bear in the village centre. (By car, Lenham... More

This is a really tradtional old beamed inn with cosy bar areas. The bedrooms are comfortable and quite spacious, including both bath and shower. The room was very quiet at night. There is a large free car park at the back. The staff were solicitous and efficient. The breakfast was copious with lots of choice. My only complaint was that... More
