This place was recommended to us while we were on holiday in Tunbridge Wells. We were not disappointed. We are gluten free and were delighted to find that the chef not only understood our needs but was able to adapt our meal so we could enjoy a full Sunday roast (minus Yorkshire pud). There was even a choice of desserts!... More

Came here after visiting Penshurst Place. Pre booked a table in open table but didn't need to as was pretty empty considering it was a Sunday afternoon. We were sat at a wobbly table so they moved us to a table by the window but this over looked the bins abs car park (not the best view). However this wasn't... More

Recommend by a friend and it's probably the best recommendation I've had in a long while. They take online reservations (Opentable) and the service was flawless - granted the place was 3/4 empty on a Sunday. There is a definite split personalty to this place with a beer garden hidden away beyond the carpark filling up with dehydrated cyclists but... More

A lovely village with a disappointing village pub. Right next to Penshurst Place and gardens this place should be doing well,but it obviously isn't. We were practically the only people in there. The drinks are pricey and the food too expensive for what it is. Dull,dark and gloomy with no atmosphere whatsoever. Not somewhere we will return to.

If you are getting married in Penshurst, do NOT rely on this hotel. We got married in Penshurst place in late May. Having been assured by the manager of the Leicester Arms that we would have first refusal on rooms for our wedding party, the hotel was then fully booked out to another party without even the courtesy of letting...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a wedding party . Staff were friendly and helpful and the setting beautiful. Very convenient for Penshurst Place. The bedroom was luxurious with a very comfortable bed. There was little space to store clothes and the lighting dim. However this was not really a problem until we needed some privacy when... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for the late May bank holiday as we were attending a wedding at Penshurst Place. The staff were very friendly and couldn't,t do enough to be helpful. We stayed in a superior room with a 4 poster and it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The bathroom was very well... More

From start to finish the staff here could not do enough to make us feel welcome and even provided a locked shed to store our bicycles. The pub itself is stunning and Penshurst is a beautiful little village that really does feel like you are stepping back in time. The bedroom was lovely. We had the standard double which was... More

Not busy at all Maybe has something to do with the outrageous prices £9.00 for a glass of prosecco ?? Every other pub in area charges £5-£6 Food menu looked boring and overpriced With much better pubs nearby Spotted Dog,, just up the road and the Windmill in the Weald Both with much better choices of Ale and food Give...
