“Amazing evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We had a fantastic meal with very attentive service throughout the evening, couldn't fault anything. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and a good size. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and all served quickly and efficiently with smiles, We would highly recommend The Crown and Punchbowl for a weekend away.

This is an excellent restaurant with great food off a varied and interesting menu and service to match.
The real ale from Shepherd's Neame was well kept, and the wine list had plenty of choice.
We did not use the accommodation but I should imagine the rooms are to the same high standard.

I recently visited the Crown and Punchbowl for the second time. The menu offers a fantastic choice making it difficult for me to choose what to have! The service I received was from happy, friendly attentive staff. Presentation of food was amazing! I hope to visit again soon.

My whole family stayed here when they came to celebrate my husband's 70th. They said it was the best B and B they had ever stayed in (and believe me the 5 couples have stayed in a few!) Fabulous breakfast and beautiful rooms. haven't tried it myself as I live round the corner! Do treat ourselves to the wonderful dinner menu now and again though!
