We stayed two nights at the Dog & Bear in september.
Lenham is a very charming village and the Dog & Bear is everything we expect from a typical English Inn.
We had a great deal (booked by House of Britain) on the ferry crossing Dunkerque - Dover + 2 night's stay, and already recommended the Dog & Bear to several friends & family members. It's a great place to stay if on a short break in England.
The pub really added to the atmosphere. It is used by locals and we enjoyed having a drink at night, without having to drive. Room within walking distance. Nice. The food was good: classic English dishes like steak & ale pie. Always a great reason to visit the UK .
Breakfast was very good. Lot's of choice: Continental breakfast, English breakfast, waffles with maple syrup, bacon and an egg (stuff one would never eat in Belgium:)), ... + friendly staff.
Our room was good. We felt the bed was rather small (we have a bigger one at home) and since it is an older building there's not as much insulation as in newer ones. We didn't have noisy neighbours but if we had, the whole experience would have been less fun.
For the money we paid we really can't complain and we would definitely return.
If the owners would want to improve something: The bathroom could use some refurbishments.
