Had dinner here on Friday night with friends after work. Whitstable bay on the pump and ordered dinner by the fire. Very good food (fish pie was great and the girls all had fish and chips). Our table was unfortunately next door to radiator and made me feel like I was in an oven. Service was ok but I wouldn't... More

I have visited here many times and i have to say the food has always been amazing. The roasts in particular and the crackling starter are definitely worth a mention. The steak night is also great value and if you can get a spot by the fire then you're set for the night!

I have previously negatively reviewed this pub's restaurant, BUT after being done up and prices going sky high, it has now become a reasonably priced restaurant with friendly staff who are keen to serve you well. The menu is varied and interesting. In addition, it is a real Kent pub with an inglenook fireplace in the main bar where there... More

After a very nice meal here previously my friends & I decided to return. What a difference this visit turned out to be. We ordered 2 portions of the pork crackling and apple sauce to start which was lovely. I ordered the Macaroni Cheese with crunchy topping priced at £11.25 - (not exactly a cheap meal)my friends ordered the Duke... More

We stayed here for three nights during half-term and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was very comfortable and beautifully appointed, with the added treat of a Nespresso machine! The only criticism is that we couldn’t control the radiator which made the room a sauna in the mornings. The breakfasts were fantastic and one of the best I have had in... More

The table we had asked for previously was not available. The food priced higher than most and on this occasion was not up to standard. The dry macaroni cheese was a small portion and came with no accompaniments. The burger was dry. Our complaint was not dealt with effectively. All in all a real disappointment. We will not be returning... More

What a charming little find in a cute village, the quality of the food was excellent, service could have been better but it didn't really matter because the staff were all lovely. The first thing that hits you when you walk in is the delicious smell, which never disappointed. Crumble and ice cream was delicious! Will definitely be back.

Stayed here overnight when taking son to Kent Uni. Staff couldn't have been more helpful Room was lovely and very Clean. Food excellent and not overpriced. Village itself is worth a look around and has a beautiful church and interesting houses Would highly recommend - we'll be back
