Had a delicious three course lunch with five friends. All courses were very tasty and service was good. We had the senior person offer which was excellent value for money. Choice of all three courses was varied and would sort most people.

The food in this pub cannot be faulted - traditional and very tasty. Often when I meet friends from work, we come to this pub for lunch because the food is great and the service is prompt. It was because of this, I decided to book for an evening meal to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my husband and my... More

Good morning I am truly sorry to hear that you have been made to feel uncomfortable whilst in our pub. Would you be so kind as to let me know when you were in and where you sat as I have spoken to everyone here and nobody remembers this incident. Unusually, I do not recall anything either so please contact... More

Stayed here for 1 night in August. The staff were very friendly on arrival and showed me to my room. The room was clean and tidy and has been recently refurbished. We decided to eat in the restaurant, it was nice and busy and had a great atmosphere. The food really was great, and the staff were very helpful and... More

We stayed here as a family of 5 last night after getting off the late ferry from Dunkirk to Dover. It is tucked away so you will most probably need a Sat Nav to find it. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent.

Have just arrived home from having a family meal, to celebrate a birthday at The Black Pig (how apt the name is). To begin, there were no high chairs left, even though one was asked for when meal was booked, therfore my grandson struggled to sit at the table and eat. Secondly, when four pie meals arrived one of them... More

Good morning. Apologies that you felt you had a bad experience recently at the Black Pig but I will respond to if you do not mind to your points individually. At no point was a high chair attached to your reservation as it was not requested. All roasts are served with Yorkshire puddings and most definitely all turkey roasts had... More

Staff and locals very friendly. Roast dinner was lovely but undercooked vegetables .The roast potatoes would have been spot on if they were cooked 10 minutes more,same with the new.

Visited the Black Pig with three others for weekday lunch. Great pub grub, great prices, good red wine for a country pub, and helpful and pleasant staff. If you're planning a trip out there though, even if you live in east Kent stick the post code in the sat nav. There are country lanes to be negotiated and it would... More

This place is a real gem, it's a proper old country pub tucked away in the village of Staple near Sandwich. We arrived there today just before 4.00pm and enquired as to whether they were serving food. They welcomed us in although the kitchen was about to close. The pub itself is small and cosy, there was an open fire... More

Went for a meal last night with an old school friend here. I haven't been here for ages as it was so dire under the numerous amount of previous owners. We walked into a spotlessly clean yet full of atmosphere and charm pub and welcomed warmly by the new owners Jane and Ali. We had a drink before going into... More
