Welcoming traditional pub

We have made many visits to this pub and have been very impressed with the service. The food and drinks, particularly the house wines, are of a high standard considering the comparatively low prices and the decor creates a warm atmosphere.

Went to this Wetherspoon pub for Valentine's day with my boyfriend who was nice enough to pay for it all. Unfortunately, due to the rude staff, it put a downer on our special day. Firstly, we were not informed that we would have to order food at the bar and so we were waiting hungry for a while before my... More

We were unsure where to eat while in Ashford for the day shopping and after going in to two other places, we were very unsure! The lade at Mr. Simm's Sweet Shoppe recommended the Country Hotel to us and said it was a proper pub lunch. Sure enough, it was a proper lunch. We ate well in a relaxed area... More

This spoons has a smallish garden at the rear open to the elements. It has a large open plan bar area and three or four smaller 'rooms' giving it a cozy though dark feel, closer to the front door. The toilets which are upstairs are neat and clean. Our meal was as expected, hot and eatable.
