We stayed here for a friend's wedding at Penshurst. The two girls behind the bar were great. Really friendly and great service. Breakfast was good, room was lovely. Cannot fault the place and hopefully will visit again! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Staff were friendly but it was all a bit chaotic and slow. Excellent breakfast with good range. Nice to have fresh milk instead of UHT pots but with no fridge in the room, it's not very practical in the summer. Dinner was pricey and the food selection limited. Bathroom small and the fan was not strong enough for the room.... More

Had a lovely single night here on a Sunday. Sadly restaurant is closed of a Sunday evening so had to eat elsewhere. The room was large and the bed very big and comfortable. The breakfast was very good…nice to see kippers available! The beer garden and furniture were just perfect. Only wish that they provide milk/cream cartons for coffee and... More

Great room in a nice little pub with a great beer garden. Staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Room was large, clean and well equipped, we had a four poster bed. Nice big bathroom with a powerful shower. Only downside was that the music from the pub was loud and could be heard through the floor, that was... More

Very much of two minds about our stay. The building was historic and interesting. The staff were friendly and welcoming, if not that efficient. The bar was good and the food was good but it was "the little things" which let it down. On checking in, we were told that there would be no milk in the room for tea... More

We had a wonderful stay in this historic pub which is situated in the lovely village of Penshurst opposite the gates to Penshurst Place (which is well worth a visit in itself!) Our standard rooms were beautifully furnished, the bed was very comfortable. A cafetière with ground coffee and herbal and breakfast teas were complimented by fresh milk delivered to... More

This is a lovely pub so it was a real shame that the food and service were SOOO disappointing. We waited over an hour to receive our lunch and at no point did the staff come over to ask if we wanted another drink or to update us on our order. When the food finally arrived it was over cooked.... More

Nice old coaching inn, with friendly staff and inferior food, (strictly pub grub.) There is a reasonably nice garden which backs on to a car park. This is a good place for a quick reviver after a cycle ride or a brisk walk. It's nice, but nothing more than that.

We booked most of the rooms for 2 nights for our wedding which was in Penshurst, and had dinner for 25 on the Friday, followed by a buffet for 40 on the Sunday. Though the booking process Danielle and Richard were incredibly helpful and organised. All of our guests were happy with their rooms and the food was fantastic for... More

I know this establishment, and indeed have known it for a long time. Probably 15 years or more, and way before the current owners took it over. Previously, the pub and hotel had been very neglected and had gathered a bad local reputation. But more recently, following the take over a couple of years ago, the property has been refurbed...
