This Inn proved to be very disappointing, it seems to rely on it's historical connection to Dickens for a very undeserved reputation. We found the whole experience tired and unwelcoming with no apparent effort by the staff to make our stay of 2 nights memorable. The decor is old and shabby and the general facilities in our room amateurishly installed.... More

Visited Kent for a friends birthday, stayed here for two nights it's a lovely quaint old pub with rooms. We were made very welcome by the staff, and the breakfast was served in a cute little snug with an open fire and was delicious. The only small thing was that the room and bathroom could do with a little bit... More

We stayed here on New Year's Eve. The bedroom was very olde worlde but had a wonderful cosy feel. The bar itself has a great ambience and you are made very welcome by the landlord, landlady and their bar staff. The restaurant food was very good with a variety of things on the menu. Recommended

I love this place was over the moon we were able to get booked in. Once again Bryan and Sue and their team could not do enough for us. From the moment we arrived they were so helpful, overing to help take bags up to the rooms, and asking if there was anything they could do. Food was delicious. Service... More

Arrived at the pub and was greeted by a friendly receptionist and shown to the room. It was a large sized room. There was a good pub downstairs with a varied menu and for a reasonable price. Wifi available in the room with average connection. Room is dated (wallpaper was coming off the walls), the shower/bathroom could use a revamp... More

We were attending a wedding at nearby Cobham Hall and reminded The pub from childhood outings. The owners and staff were wonderful and were amazing at helping us out when we couldn't get a taxi. Bedroom was large although the bathroom is small but this is normal is these kinds of buildings. Same goes for the squeaky floors, just means... More

Rooms are clean, beds are good, and the people are lovely. On our second stay here since May and this time have the dogs with us - fantastic walks for miles in every direction. And the food is very tasty and well cooked. Very good selection of champagne, wine, and beers. Sweet!

The food was appalling with no flavour and not effort put in. The chicken wasn't fresh, it just seemed like sliced packet chicken. It was extremely over priced for what we was served with. Would not recommend eating food here at all, was very disappointed.

I stayed here on business recently. What a great place. An old building with character, old slate floors, big oak beams and narrow corridors just great. I stayed in the 4 poster room, what a great room. Plenty of space, oak panels & original windows & an en-suite bathroom with it's own little corridor. A 3 - 4 seater couch,... More

We were going to a 50th Birthday party in the village and decided to stay at the Leather Bottle as it within walking distance. We stayed in the large room with the four poster bed it was massive. We will definitely return again. There is also a lovely garden with lots of seating and also a little place where you... More
