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

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.
