A Group I belong to arranged to have lunch for about 20 people following a meeting in the area. The table had been booked but when we arrived there were not enough places for everyone and an extra table had to be added. There was a pensioners menu consisting of two courses with choices ranging from roast turkey and all... More

Called in for a late lunch when passing through the village and it was a good decision. 3 adults fed well and all enjoyed their meals and drinks and the final cost was reasonable. Pleasant environment and staff - shame I did not have the chance to try some local ales - maybe next time.

Just found their tea room, and it is a lovely little gem. Tasty cakes and great tea and coffee. We were very well looked after and will definitely go back.

Dropped in for lunch. This village pub has good parking and offers accommodation, a restaurant and tea rooms. Situated next to the River Teise we opted to sit in the beer garden on a fine sunny day. Being early in the season the beer garden could do with a little TLC but this did not distract from helpful staff and... More

We visited Scotney Castle and dropped down into Lamberhurst and had a delighted lunch in the garden. The welcome from the staff could not have been better. The food and drink was great. A wonderful break"

Lovely old pub with real fire. Good traditional menu. Food was well cooked with good ingredients. 2 real ales and very friendly staff. About £10 a main dish so great value.

Stopped on the off chance of getting some food and it turned out to be a gem of a place. The staff were very friendly and helpful, from requests we could hear at other tables nothing was too much trouble for them. The prices were pretty reasonable, I had roast beef lunch which was just shy of a tenner. The... More

We have just enjoyed one of the best Sunday lunches we have ever eaten out, also a tasty vegetarian risotto and a fish dish - all excellent , not to mention the pate and deserts!! We will certainly be going back. A friendly atmosphere with pleasant staff who do not rush you. 👍😀
