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

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!

We stayed for a single night as part of a birthday treat for me (including a visit to nearby Chartwell). The place has been recently renovated and they have done a good job, the landlord was keen to get our feedback (always a good sign) We rented one of the huts in the back garden to have our dinner which...

On the plus... More

Lovely country pub just outside Tonbridge in Kent. Well worth a visit. Formal and informal dining and decent outside space. Reasonably priced food and drinks and food menus are excellent. Quality of food top notch and service always friendly and helpful. Def go there again!

Booked another stay overnight on Easter Sunday as we were visiting family on the Monday. Excellent service as always. Love the fact you can buy Champagne by the glass. The food was superb, the chunky chips are to die for! Staff extremely polite and professional, rooms are lovely. Really like this pub/hotel, we will be back.

We stayed for 2 nights this Easter & can thoroughly recommend. The food was excellent, staff attentive & friendly. We had a standard room which was in my opinion was of a very high standard. I could not fault it in any way. Loved the quaint huts for private al fresco parties
