The room itself was lovely but for £100 a night I would expect the light in the corridor to be working. It's a lovely pub with nice gardens but very expensive for what they offer, personally I don't think having a bath in the bedroom warrants charging more!

A lovely pub for some decent food at reasonable price. Really nice outdoors setting to have dinner and in the colder months inside doesn't let it self down either. Just outside the hussle and bussle of town in a nice location.

Everything was fine, but I did assume that we had booked Bed and Breakfast for our £190 two night stay as I don't know of anywhere that DOESN'T include breakfast (I do now though) The service and staff really were great, although I have to give 4 stars because our banoffee pie took an hour to arrive on the first...

Comfortable,welcoming small hotel. Young happy staff eager to please . Twin bedded room was fresh , clean and up to date with excellent shower. Food was locally source and of very good standard - shown by numbers of people eating at lunch and dinner. We would certainly return for another break to visit the many National Trust properties in the... More

Stayed for 3 nights in this relaxing little pub. A great atmosphere each evening as the restaurant was busy but most people were gone at a reasonable time so we weren't kept up by any noise. For £99 a night the standard room was small but pleasant and clean. Some of the doors on the bedside cupboards and other furniture... More

Gem of a place. Lovely rooms very spacious and charming. Had a wonderful dinner and breakfast. Everyone was helpful. Chris the owner was very gracious. Would highly recommend it and would stay there again if staying in the area of tun ridge Hildenborough

Room 9 has a wacky bath for 2 in the bedroom and a power shower in the... More

We consider the room we had in this pub with rooms rather too expensive - £70 for a small, clean & perfectly adequate room above the bar, BUT the bedhead was along the window which is not liked by most people, & BREAKFAST WAS NOT INCLUDED for that price. Not a fair deal!

Just come back from this inn. It was my partners birthday and we both had a really lovely dinning experience. The staff were curtious and the atmosphere relaxed and uncomplicated. A very good restaurant to which will shall both enjoy returning to.
