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...

My wife and I stayed here after a friend's wedding and found that the landlord was very welcoming and helpful. The room was large, clean and perfectly suited to the woodland surroundings. The cooked breakfast was perfectly done using some delicious ingredients. It is a little dark if you return after the pub is closed, as somebody commented here, but... More

We called into this country pub for lunch on our way home after a shopping trip in Tunbridge Wells. The pub is in a relatively quiet but attractive rural setting. We were served at the bar immediately on arrival by a very friendly and helpful member of staff. My wife had ham egg and chips for lunch. All the meat... More

We stayed here just one night as we were going to a concert at Bedgebury Pinetum (Paloma Faith - she was great!) The landlady is very friendly and welcoming, and overall this is a comfortable pub to stay in. The room was nice and quiet, the bed comfy and the sheets and towels of a good quality. We had the...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry you didn't like the vegetables. All our food is fresh and locally sourced and we like to cook the vegetables al dente rather than over cooking to preserve the goodness and flavour. I am sure my staff would have checked with you that your food was to... More

As a female travelling alone, I found the overall experience to be somewhat scary. I was the only guest the night I stayed, and was disturbed to find that I appeared to be completely alone in the building overnight. By 11 p.m., the place was dark, silent and locked up. It was difficult to find the light switches in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. As a country pub, mid week we are often closed by around 11pm, with the pub obviously locked and secured. I can assure you you weren't alone in the pub. My wife and I live on site as does one of my chefs, whose room was 2 doors away from... More

Being from Canada, we have thoroughly enjoyed the pub experience over the past two months of our tour of England. The Best Beech Inn has to be at the top of our list. Firstly, when we found ourselves lost and unable to find our accommodation, a gentleman at the bar kindly showed us how to get to our bed and... More
