We booked a 2 day stay here and it was excellent. The room was lovely and the 3 course meal on our second evening was faultless. The staff were very obliging and Gemma in particular was a star, looking after us so well & gave us lots of useful information. We would certainly stay here again.

Perfect weekend getaway, can't fault this hotel on anything. Beautifully decorated throughout and elegant in all its details, from floral china cups and saucers in the bedroom to the tasselled door key! Food and wine was excellent, service prompt and cheerful. The gorgeous surrounding countryside and quaint village atmosphere made us wonder why on earth we still live in London!

As the Grooms family location for our wedding at Penshurst Place, we had the run of the pub for the whole weekend. Rooms where great, food was great and the staff very obliging. Ate breakfast, lunch and supper over the course of the weekend and all were good,The only criticism I heard from any of our guests was that most... More

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
