My husband and I booked a table for dinner on Friday night (21st). When we first arrived we had a very warm greeting by a young lad named Jack, he seemed very confident and welcoming, he wasted no time showing us to our table, offering us water, giving us menus and taking our drinks order straight away, we ordered a...

A wonderful old coach house which has retained its charm.The duty manager was very chatty and friendly.Our room was on the second floor and although a little small it was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean.The bed was really comfy with crisp white sheets.The shower was out of this world... Best ever!The only down side was that it was a warm... More

We had a lovely stay at the Leicester Arms. Location - The location is very rural, and so very quiet. Beware, no phone signal (but there was wifi which worked well). There was plenty of parking and the place was easy to find. Room - We had the Family Room as this was the only room available when we booked... More

Our son was married at Penshurst Church on 7th August 2015. Family and friends booked all the rooms at the Leicester Arms - just across the road from the church. The whole place is fantastic - made even more beautiful by the stunning weather. Rooms, staff, food could not have been better and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful gardens... More

Stopped for lunch, two sandwiches came with chips, one a steak and one a pulled pork - total cost £20. What a shame that the steak had so much gristle we had to open the sandwich to cut it all out. The "pulled pork" was actually thin slices of belly of pork with soft, greasy crackling that also had to... More

We stopped here for one night at random, having found it on Booking.com when we arrived in the area. Got a comfortable "standard double" at a good rate, which included breakfast. Staff were welcoming and friendly, and the food was excellent. Really nice. Only slight downside was the wi-fi signal was a bit weak from the room on the top... More

My wife and I came to stay on the 18th of July for 2 nights, or so we thought. We booked with bookings.com but they had messed up our dates ( will check in future). The pub was completely booked up for a wedding, and had been for a year. So after a 5 hour drive from Devon, we we're... More

A nice little cosy hotel , little being the word. If you are a person above 6ft 3 be very aware and scared of low door frames and short bed , both of which have caused me painful moments during my short stay . Food very nice in restaurant . Wifi awful , almost unable to use during late night... More

Liked the look and location and the beer garden was very noce. However, there is much room for improvement to service. Coffees were reasonable but could be better for the price. We had to wait too long at bar then had to traipse a tray a fair trek down steps to the beer garden.

Very comfortable beds, crisp, good quality linen and towels. Bathroom amazing! Restaurant served extremely good breakfast, high standard. Meals in the evening v good. The only drawback as discussed with the General Manager is the housekeeping. Mattresses and pillows did not have covers, even though they were in a good condition. Bathroom was not cleaned every day and bin was... More
