Very welcoming staff, excellent food with some unusual menu items like African babooti, local beer. Great room with quirky ensuite featuring original fireplace. Quiet pub downstairs so good nights sleep. Only marked down one star as mattress felt worn on one side so felt like sleeping on a slope but after a long day in London didn't really bother me....

I had to be at Brands Hatch for a seminar so a colleague booked me into the Castle. The room was rustic, compact, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. I had a really good nights sleep. I ate in the restaurant downstrairs and the food was really excellent, both in the portion size and flavour. Overall, a really comfortable stay and I... More

We recently stayed here for a wedding in Shoreham, the staff were absolutely lovely from the moment we arrived! We checked in much later than we should've but they staff were so nice and happy to wait for us, they then offered us a free upgrade due to our awful day!

Stayed one night while visiting Rochester/Chatham Docks. Public areas, bar and restaurant have character and charm, and while the bedrooms are clean, they are small and with very little character. The breakfast and staff are excellent. We also ate dinner in the restaurant as we arrived late, and we had an excellent dinner. Recommend.

Thankyou for spending the time to leave such a lovely review its really great to know you enjoyed your stay with us. Because of the age of the building some rooms are larger than others, room 7 for example is huge so maybe if you are in the area again and would like to stay ring me and I'll make... More

We visited this restaurant recently with friends. On arriving my husband went to the bar and ordered a drink while I looked for a table. As I approached a vacant table a woman pushed past me and grabbed a bill and a ten pence tip that had been left. There was no apology in fact I did think that maybe... More

This response is for the couple on the right hand-side of the table as your friends on the left were very nice and polite.

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst on business in the area and had a very pleasant time. The room was very good and comfortable and the decor most pleasant. The food and local beers were very tasty as well. I hope to stay here again soon.

What a lovely welcome. Food - well just right in my opinion. Ploughmans was the best ever (and no I am not telling you how old I am). Evening meal was well presented and just right after spending the day visiting the sights locally. The Roman villa is a must and the castle (or remains) was smaller than I had... More

I used to live locally and went to this pub when it was small and dark. On a recent visit I was told that it had been refurbished. The difference is immense. The main bar is now open, light and very tastefully decorated. The service is warm and friendly, the menu is local and imaginative and the cooking superb. I... More
