I booked to stay here for a wedding. My friend checked in before the wedding and I met her at the church. Later that evening I went back to the pub to settle in, the pub was closed and it was dark with no lighting to see anything. The keys did not work to get into the pub, the doorbells... More

I am sorry that you could not access your room Madeleine. Your friend whom you were sharing with had no problem getting in, the other four letting rooms residents experiencing no issues with the doors either. I did check the door with your friend present and the keys you couldn't access the building with on the Sunday morning and she... More

I am sorry you found our staff "strange" we are complimented constantly on their warm and welcoming nature. There is no damp in the rooms and we had had our carpets cleaned two weeks previous to your viewing so cannot imagine the smell you are referring to! Far from being off white our bedding is provided by a reputable commercial... More

We have yet again had a superb meal at this very friendly pub. The gardens are looking great, plenty of seating amongst the flowers...and very friendly and chatty service!! Very strongly recommended. The prices, particularly the Senior Citizens menu is very tasty and well presented.

Overal it was a lovely place to stay. The massive downfall was how dirty the room was. The coffee was out of date, lamp was so dusty, kettle was broken under the beds thick with dirt. The cutlery was in useable as was stained and dirty, location amazing, garden even better and the bar was nice. It's very small area... More

Excellent value at lunchtime as they have a 2-course lunch for seniors for £7.95. We both had an ample portion of whitebait served on a board with a salad garnish and a warm baguette. I had the liver and bacon and my wife had the homemade chicken & leek pie. Again ample portions freshly cooked. Shepherd Neame ales are well... More

Have just had a very tasty lunch at this lovely old pub in our local village.... I knew it was next to the River Teise and their gardens with tables and decking are just delightful, I believe a lot of hard work has gone into creating this peaceful setting and my congratulations go to all concerned!!! The food was great,... More

My family stayed at Chequers in 2012 after owner Nigel Hilton was welcoming and helpful to my mother during her previous trip to England. What a little gem to find this place in the gorgeous English countryside, run by a man with formal top-level chef training. He went from being the private chef for yachting billionaires to settling down to... More

We were one of the other couples who were told that one room was flooded and we were the only guests to be bounced.....we managed to find a hotel in maidstone but only after making 15 calls. one couple ended up driving from Londona and back. The new owners should be ashamed of themselves as this type of behaviour is... More
