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

We stayed overnight as we we attending a wedding nearby. Bedrooms are very comfortable although the addition of an arm chair wouldn't come amiss. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and presented. There is a wide choice on the menu from continental style items to full English.

We were attending a party and stayed overnight. We arrived rather early and had lunch which was very good, especially my dessert which was so beautifully presented it seemed a shame to eat it! Despite being rushed off their feet in the bar attending to a vast crowd of guests attending a wedding at Penshurst Place, we were shown to... More

We visited for a birthday dinner, the staff were welcoming and not fazed by choices of a 'real' martini for my wife (delicious). We had a lovely table in delightful dining room furnished by a varied assortment of non matching furniture, over looking gardens. The food was terrific and between us we tried a good variety of fish, meat and... More

Went last Saturday for a spot of lunch. A lovely little venue with a well balanced menu. I ordered the pork sandwich which came nicely. The only downer was the bar man (probably manager) who was a little rude and dismissive during service. He could have been a tad rushed but thats no excuse.

I wanted to book somewhere special to celebrate our 40th WA. Having eaten lunch at the restaurant a while back, I knew that the Leicestershire Arms Hotel would be the place for that, and rooms available meant we would not have to worry about the drink driving. Really comfy bed, with lovely soft sheets, excellent bath/shower and tea coffee making... More

From the road the Leicester Arms looks like a fairly small and quaint affair. Once you go in it gets better and better! From the saddles hanging in the bar, the big sofas in the lounge, big restaurant and garden this place keeps on giving. Lovely people, great food, beautiful village.
