Friendly staff, good food & beer! Excellent showers. Felt like a home from home even on a first visit. Excellent breakfast choices all included in the B & B rate. Even a pool table and darts for a proper pub night out.

Small but adequate menu, service was good, food of real quality. Nice beers, pleasant location. Not overpriced in any way. There is plenty of room in the bar for informal meals and a dining area if you need a more traditional setting.

A large group of us stayed here 10 years ago for my husband's 40th and it didn't disappoint then. 10 years on we stopped by again. Lenham is still as lovely. This pub is still as lovely. Olde world charm with open fire and beams. Locals were very accommodating, moving so a group of us (10) could sit together. No...

Thank you to Brian, Anne and the team another great stay.

On arrival we were greeted warmly by Mel and that theme continued throughout our stay. We had our dog with us and he was treated so well too.
