Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night short break. Staff took great care to make us feel most welcome and do a brilliant job of looking after their customers - young, old, and four legged. Beautiful village setting, delightful garden overlooking open fields and we were spoils for choice with both lunch and dinner menus. Breakfast served on the terrace in the... More

Visited the Duke William on a Sunday. It was incredibly busy as per usual. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I opted for the fish and chips and not the Sunday roast. It was delicious and tasted fresh. My son also opted for the short BBQ rib which was lovely. I have never had popcorn mussels before so we... More

Ickham is just north of the main A257 road between Canterbury and Sandwich and it is well situated to visit Canterbury, Sandwich, Deal, Dover and the Isle of Thanet. The staff were very friendly - when we checked... More

Stayed here back in February. It has a great village pub feel. The food was great! Both dinner and breakfast. The room was lovely and very spacious - can be a bit noisy but it is above a pub remember. I would definitely recommend this hotel - the decor is lovely inside!

Just marvellous. Very special staff, an amazing setting in an idyllic English village and great food and rooms We were in a Tracelzoo offer but the welcome we received and the standard of service was well above our expectations. It was like travelling into dreamland.

We chose this venue as base to visit the Whitstable Oyster Festival, we were overwhelmed by how welcoming and friendly the staff were. A bonus to see Paul Hollywood at the bar. 10/10 for a great pub in a beautiful village
