I recently took my Elderly Dad to the carpenters arms. As always staff very friendly & food was amazing! Dad has the fish stew which had lots of different fish & lovely soft bread. I had the Moules they were delicious. Nothing is to much trouble. All the food looked lovely very well presented. Lovely atmosphere. We will be back!!

Had a very nice meal here for my mother's 84th birthday. However what really impressed me was when I rang on the Thursday afternoon to ask if they would be able to provide a cake for the Saturday lunchtime, they asked what type I wanted and said that would be fine. I ask d for the cost and was told... More

The vegetables were presented in separate bowls and cooked to perfection (carrots, red cabbage, kale & broccoli). Staff were very friendly and the service was also very good. I asked... More

Looking for somewhere to stay whilst doing some sightseeing in Kent, I researched many, many places before plumping for this one. Generally, I was quite pleased with how it turned out. I paid a little extra for the 'superior' room and on arrival we were told we had the 'best room' (Room 9) and so it was - this is... More

This is an absolutely fabulous pub/restaurant with good food and really helpful staff. It is a little off the beaten track but is well known by the locals with plenty of parking space and recently added,the Gazebos. Which are completely weather proof.Excellent.

Stopped over here for one night on way to wedding.Six of us had a meal and we were all happy. Service was really good, especially Martin,who ensured we got exactly what we we booked. Rooms were clean, comfy and spacious. Didn't have too much time to explore but it is situated in a lovely area. Would definately recommend

I was really pleased with the Carpenters Arms and the accommodation. The food served was very good and the resteraunt and bar area was very comfortable. The outside areas are very pleasant and as the pub is in the countryside it has a nice feel and relaxed atmosphere. You are tied to the pub unless you wish to drive elsewhere.... More
