Stopped off to have a lunchtime snack. Great outside area and cosy inside. Nothing was too much trouble and a great selection of beers and ciders to suit us both. Had live music in the garden and the landlord was so friendly. So pleased that my friend recommended the Rose Inn..will definitely recommend and return.

It's 18 years since we moved away from Wickhambreaux. When we left the Rose had closed after the then landlord went bust and did a bunk. It has been fabulously restored, and, along with the school which our kids attended, and the church, is once again the fitting heart to a beautiful Kentish village. We had walked to the pub... More

Popped in here for dinner after walking out of the Red Lion at Stodmarsh and we definately made the right choice. A wonderful busy atmosphere with delicious food at reasonable prices with good portions. Beer is always decent too!

While I was doing family research on some ancestors who left Wickhambreaux for Australia in the 19th century, I had hoped to have lunch at The Rose Inn. The fame of its cuisine was noted even in Canterbury where the name of the inn and the village are synonymous. Recently, I was able to realise that goal. I was not... More

We visited on a weekend, the pub was busy and lively with locals and visitors. We sat in the bar area which was very pretty with hop garlands all around. The food was very good, quick service and friendly staff. The portion sizes were very good. Nice, buzzy atmosphere and a great meal.

Visited on a rainy Friday. Had encountered difficulty in getting access for a weekend and sunny days make it a popular stop. We are grateful to have pre-booked and pre-ordered to assist the management in view of our walking group of 14. Food and drink was both good. Nice setting.

My daughter booked a family meal at The Rose Inn and it was a pleasure to return again....when we arrived many customers were seated outside enjoying their drinks in a wonderful village location overlooking the village green. We had a table reserved and they were prepared to cater for an 18 month baby. The atmosphere inside the Rose Inn is... More

Fabulous Sunday roast with slow roast shoulder of lamb, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, cauliflower cheese, carrots and green beans. As good as a home roast but without the washing up! Friendly, helpful service and great value. Thanks guys we will see you again soon.

Sunday lunch. Lost for words on this one, was recommended by a friend for the food selection. Checked the menu on line and looks great, only to find that on arrival was limited to a Sunday menu minus the Lamb that I was looking forward to. Belly of pork was my second choice and I looked forward to seeing the... More
