On a square, like you entered a fairy tale... There is we're this hotel is situated. It's really nice with big rooms! We had a hot water issue and were moved to another room when we were away. Breakfast is lovely, just order what you want. Nice things to do in the area also!

Very high standard of comfort and facilities in the rooms, very good food for the evening meal and breakfast. Lovely friendly feel to the hotel and pub, and all the staff were very helpful. I have paid much more for much less. If you are staying in the area I suggest you stay here.

Although it calls itself a hotel , it is more like a pub with rooms. That is meant as a compliment as despite providing reasonable accomodation and a restaurant area it still feels like the village pub. A lot of similar places sacrifice their heritage by overmodernising and concentrating on food service too much. Also somewhat surprisingly nowadays the lovely... More

Located in a nice Village. The bar and dining rooms are homely and the breakfast is really excellent. Dining is fine and the staff are most helpfull and kind. In fact everything downstairs is really nice. However, upstairs is a different story. The hairdryer fitting fell off the wall and didn't work properly. The toilet roll holder was hanging losely...

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
