I used to live in Lenham 15 years ago and decided to call in yesterday Afternoon for a Sunday lunch. The pub was not particularly busy, but the football was on so I could keep an eye on the score. We ordered the 2 course Sunday roast for £14.50 which seemed good value. Unfortunately after 40 minutes still no sign... More

Good hotel, nice room. A bit noisy, you can hear People talking and the television in the adjacent room. But that didn't bother us too much. Nice pub, with great food. Relaxing atmosphere. Good parking space. Ideal for a short visit!

Loved this hotel. Picturesque setting fronting the village square, there was a market on the Sunday morning which was lovely - stalls selling plants, scented wax for burners, loose leaf teas, knitted items, honey, boot getter-offers and more. We chose this hotel because we wanted to take our dog and as a result he was welcome in the bar area... More

I stay here once a year and the place just gets better, a real pleasant atmospheric hotel in a proper village location . Once again the room was spotless and well appointed, the food was spot on and not wallet busting, bar area was lively with a great selection of lagers and real ales and again all the staff very...

Situated in a pleasant village the hotel serves very good food. Both dinner and breakfast was freshly cooked, tasty with good sized portions. Travelling with our dogs, we found the staff to be very helpful, extremely accommodating and friendly. We were able to dine with the dogs in the bar. Our room was located on the ground floor in an...

A great little hotel in a fantastic old village. A little of the beaten track but well worth a visit - forget the premier inn or the holiday inn, we need more of these quality private hotels. The staff are good, the restaurant serves delicious food and the bar (pub) is great. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable.... More

This busy and cosy country pub has a good restaurant serving traditional Pub meals and a substantial full English breakfast. It was very busy the night we stayed so I guess booking is essential. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but the bathroom was a little tired and in need of upgrading. Our room was above the bar so was... More

As we live locally we sometimes use this hotel for meals. I must say that the standard over the years has varied a lot! We had a meal last month on the 'birthday voucher' they have. The service we received was 1st rate, we were continually looked after, asked if we were happy with our food, which was very good.We... More
