This Pub offers OAP'S "Fish and chips bread and butter plus a pot of tea for £3.99. The fish was freshly battered and chips were good .A real bargain and excellent meal. We will be going back for more.

There is only one thing to say about this hotel and that is NO! Whoever thought they could refurbish a hotel and keep it open is very much mistaken. This hotel has got nothing to recommend it. There is NO food available, our room had NO central heating, NO double glazing NO watchable t.v, a broken toilet seat, paper peeling... More

We stayed two nights here when visiting my cousin in Rochester. Very central, clean sheets, hot showers and a TV. Place was old and run-down and in definate need of some TLC (the stairs on the way up slopped to the side) but it was not dirty and had the essentials.
