Stayed here for 1 night in July as was meeting friends in the restaurant. The room we had was clean with the en-suite bathroom. The bed was comfortable and a quiet location. The breakfast was good too with locally made honey and homemade jams. There was just enough food for breakfast without over doing it. Would happily stay here again

My wife and I stayed a week at The Dering Arms whilst visiting our son and daughter-in-law who live in nearby Little Chart. James and Penny Buss are charming people who made us feel welcome. The food was really good and the accommodation, whilst rustic and simple was warm and comfortable. The rooms are not large, the ensuite bathroom facilities... More

We stayed here for one night on 8th November. We arrived about lunch time and didn't want a large meal as we were eating there in the evening. It was suggested that we might just like to have a starter from the main menu, and we are so pleased we did. The sardines in Rosemary butter were delicious. The staff... More

Wonderful combination of pub and 'small country house hotel ' in Englands most haunted village (or so the web tells us). The building itself is fascinating, we stayed in the suite, cosy and tastefully furnished, after having sampled some of the excellent food that the Dering is justifiably renowned for. The owners clearly know their job and service and attention... More

My husband and I booked a one night stay to celebrate his Birthday on 14 September. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would certainly recommend the hotel. The bar staff were friendly and the bar area was cosy and inviting. We had no problem waiting in there for our friends to arrive! Our room was tastefully furnished and decorated with... More

My wife and I had two very enjoyable nights at The Dering Arms.Making allowances for the fact that it is a very old building with all it's quirks they have done a good job of squeezing a small en-suite into the bedrooms.The plumbing is a bit eccentric with a noisy macerater and the shower power is very poor but this...

We were booked on the Eurostar for 07.30am and decided to find a local place to stay. The Dering Arms was great, we had a really nice meal, fish is a speciality. A really nice pint of bitter and very good service. The landlord is chatty, we spent sometime talking about France and Classic Cars. The rooms were fine and... More

My Wife and I booked a one night stay in June on my parents recommendation. We thought that The Derring Arms was a lovely place and loved Pluckley and the surrounding areas. The owners seemed very down to earth and friendly. Rooms were very clean and nice. Loved the bar area and restaurant, although I did think that some of... More

This is a little gem of a pub in a pretty Kent village. We were in need of cheering up and booked a night on the spur of the moment. It was perfect for an indulgent escape. We arrived at lunchtime not intending to eat but couldn't resist the tempting menu. The scallops were delicious and the pork and sage... More
