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...

Easy check in, very comfortable and quite recently refurbished room with a large, comfortable bed and massive bathroom. We couldn't get the wifi to work, which wasn't a huge issue except that there is also no mobile reception near the hotel, but that was a minor negative.

We stayed at the Leicester Arms Hotel for a wedding at Penshurst Place. It is a lovely old place, unspoiled by too much modernisation but extensively clean and comfortable. The rooms are simple but a decent size and well equipped save for drawers and hanging space - but perfect for a short busy weekend. The food is excellent - lots... More

We stayed here for a family wedding that was taking place at Penhurst Place. We booked a Superior Double Room but was disappointed when we saw it as it was small, and was clearly a twin with the beds pushed together. It didn't even have a wardrobe, just some hooks behind the door. How can you have a superior room... More

Comfortable bed and very clean however really noisy. Music from the pub downstairs playing till very late. Very hot in room but when window open horrid smell of cigarettes! Lots of noise from the room above very late. Think it was the owners going to bed. Food was average. Ok for overnight stay but wouldn't stay for longer.

This hotel was great!! There is a pub & restaurant attached which offered a great breakfast in the price. The patio out back is charming, a great way to relax, such a peaceful area. The hotel is spotless and the service was great. It is approx a 10-15 minute drive in to Royal Tunbridge Wells and approx 45 mins to... More

Went here today. Young staff on the bar who didn't give a care. 20 minutes after we ordered they told us they didn't have the avocado for the 'crayfish and avocado salad'. Instead of offering a substitute they asked 'do you still want it?' Friend changed her order to octopus and cured salmon. It came out without the salmon and... More
