I stayed for 1 night whilst on business at the Kent and East Sussex Railway. Great location, friendly staff, lovely room, had evening meal in the bar and breakfast in the morning. Food quality excellent.

This was an excellent stopover for us between Sissinghurst and Dover. Very friendly landlady, good range of beers and wines and a perfectly good pub supper. A great breakfast and start t the next day. Thoroughly recommended

Visiting the Kent & East Sussex Railway for an evening Pullman dining experience, the William Caxton was convenient for an overnight stay. Friendly staff. However, the room was very small and tea & coffee making facilities limited. Breakfast was fine but somewhat uninspiring and we had to ask for several toast "refills" as each refill was only 1/2 a slice... More

Good atmosphere when previously visited but blonde bar girls language was loud and laddish. Just spoiled a lunch with friends. Other staff efficient but only takes one to let the team down. Roast dinner excellent. Parking tricky. Good rear seating area.

Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. Lovely room like being home from home. Husband assured me breakfast was A1 but I stayed in bed as it was so comfy. Would defo visit again. We got back quite late as we'd been to a party but this was no problem as we had keys.

Best value Sunday roast for miles and miles around - amazingly good value! Friendly staff always with a warm welcome, crackling fires and good beer and wine. What's not to like? In fact, going there now!!

We had been to this pub 10 years ago and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived today. Lovely open fire and friendly owners and staff. We ordered from a set menu with a choice of one,two or three courses. Value for money at £12. Couldn't believe our eyes with the price and the portions. Starters were very generous and the... More

We stayed here for one night in early November. We had the premier room as this was the only one available. The room was at the back - so no road noise but we could hear the bathroom fans from adjoining rooms. The windows were grubby, required painting and were missing a catch so could not be fastened shut thus... More

Only £70 a night which seems to be a good price in this area. Our room was right above the pub but there was no noise after 11pm. The pub looked quite nice for a drink, it had an open fire. The bed was comfy but very wobbly. Breakfast was excellent and just the right size.
