Had a two night stay at The Royal Oak, a very enjoyable stay with good choice of Menu and very good food. Staff friendly, Candles on tables, cosy fire, nice ambiance. Great Breakfast. A few shops to have a wander around in the small Town. Very central location. Nearby we went to Tenterden, a wonderful town with lots of character.

Stayed for two nights on a Groupon deal 30/31 October. Well worth a visit to this small hotel with a fantastic restaurant. Room was comfortable and quiet at the rear of the hotel with amazing views over the Kent countryside. The staff were so helpful and welcoming. Thank you to Nicki, Zizi and the team.

If you want a quiet, relaxing break in a Kent village to either go walking or simply chill out then try this. The Royal Oak is village pub/hotel providing a warm welcome, good food and great service. The rooms were clean, staff friendly and the hostess attentive to please. If you love shopping there is the nearby spa town of... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights and we were a little concerned after reading previous bad reviews, however I wouldn't take any notice of them as we loved staying here, the staff are very very friendly, the pub itself is lovely, traditional with a modern twist! We had dinner on the second night which was lovely, and... More

Here is a hotel, bar, restaurant to avoid. The owner and employees are rude to customers, requesting a cash payment from the first day for the entire stay. The meal price is too high, with a very poor quality. And finally, the last day, the breakfast we not been served, the staff hiding to avoid seeing us. Shame that this... More

Booked directly at the hotel. We were charged £90 for a double room - we were told the room was £80 and breakfast would be extra at £5 per head. I have since visited the hotel's website which states that a double room is £79.95 per night including breakfast, so I'm not at all impressed with that - false advertising... More

Stayed here for a family wedding nearby. Enjoyed am good meal in the bar on the Saturday night. The food was well priced and a good quality. We stayed for two nights. The room was clean but was disappointing lacking any form of shower over the bath. Very friendly and helpful staff.
