Having been to the Chafford Arms a couple of years ago for a Sunday lunch, we thought it about time we went back. So glad we did - the Sunday Roast was lovely. The beef and pork was lean and tender, 3 good sized roast potatoes, a side of cabbage, carrots and cauliflower (which was nice and hot), a large... More

This pub is actually in the village of Fordcombe, which is not shown on its trip advisor listing. We had Sunday lunch here and were not disappointed. Very nice Sunday roast with superb Yorkshire pud and nicely done all fresh veg. Desserts were varied and my syrup sponge was excellent. Service also very good. I thought £3.80 a bit steep... More

Lovely pub in a great location as you wonder through the country lanes in Kent. The Chafford Arms has always been a favourite of mine as the menu appeals to me, as well as the ambiance. The stake and Ale pie is just one of the best around, the salads they do are filling, but most of all the staff... More

Ate in the restaurant with our boys (5 and 3 years) was very nervous as clientele were older and didnt want our boys to play up. Food very nice and our off menu order for youngest boy was accomodated with no problem. The weather cleared up and had dessert in the garden. The garden and views are simply stunning and... More

Excellent venue choice; comfy interior and great pub food: we had really tasty Lasagne and Steak and Ale pie; with an excellent pint of Harvey's. All's well with the world! PS lovely pub garden too; but it was raining. Next time.

Absolutely lovely (and quite large) pub garden. And great sandwiches. The crayfish with basil dressing was awesome. We stopped for lunch on a cycling trip, and it ticked all the boxes. There was even space for the bikes by our table, so no faff with locks etc. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This pub is run by a husband and wife team. We have eaten here, several times, for Sunday lunch. The food is always good, freshly prepared and plentiful. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
