Booked a room for my mother in law last month to stay two nights. The hotel has had an extensive refurbishment and is very comfortable and modern facilities. The mother in law thought it very good , the food, service and facilities. Very good food in the main pub, portions very good.

....and I've only been here an hour....!! Lovely room, wonderful bed. Both used already as had injured my back recently, after the long drive I very much needed to rest it, and soak it in a hot bath. On top of which the very kind owners changed my room so I could have a bath, and also carried my bag... More

Thank you to Jenny for the lovely welcome late in the evening. Lovely room with nice touches. The bathroom was very spacious. The breakfast, including the most delicious pork and marmalade sausages, was so yummy that I wish I'd had dinner there the night before. I definitely want to take my boyfriend there!

Working in the Wadhurst area we stayed in a twin room for 3 nights, the room was spotless, spacious and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfast was massif and very tasty, they also serve a full menu of excellent evening meals and I can honestly say that all our dinners were delicious. The best beech Inn is run by... More

Pub supper on a Monday night with an old mate. 2 x Two pints of Harvey's Sussex bitter - yum. Shared 50/50 steak and kidney and chicken and bacon pies. Vegetables nicely al dente. Banoffee pie nice but too much fluffy cream, red cheese cake better. £60 for two - slightly more than I was expecting but this is Sussex....

The rooms have just been refurbished and are beautiful. Very comfortable 4-poster bed. Nice shower room. Great breakfast. (We cycled from Wadhurst station - 2 miles). Friendly family-run pub. We recommend it.

We have visited this pub quite a few times since the new owners took over last November & whether it is lunch or dinner the food is excellent. We have never had a bad meal in all of our dozen or more visits. The pub has changed hands many times in the last few years and hasn't been good. However,... More

I haven't been to the Best Beech for years so when mum and dad suggested having New Year's Day lunch here I was interested to see what it was like. It is under new management and the staff were really friendly, warm and welcoming. The place looks fab too, we sat in the nicely decorated dining room. The food was... More

We Live in Wadhurst & have two thriving business's in the high st so we were hoping that when it was recently taken over we could use this as our Local. However we found the so called Manager very rude & unpleasant when we had drinks spilt over us by the waitress . We understand accidents happen but when you... More

The Best Beech is a lovely pub with a welcoming dining room but this left visit us thinking there were a few things not quite as they should have been - we were told along with all the other diners that two waiting staff hadn't turned up for work so it would be necessary to order our restaurant drinks from...
