A large group of us stayed here 10 years ago for my husband's 40th and it didn't disappoint then. 10 years on we stopped by again. Lenham is still as lovely. This pub is still as lovely. Olde world charm with open fire and beams. Locals were very accommodating, moving so a group of us (10) could sit together. No...

We feel very comfortable with you and everyone made us feel welcome and always had time for a few words asking about our day and the plans we had ready to offer help and advice as needed. Reception even managed to help us with our confusing travel tickets above...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Rooms are spacious and clean, but because of the old windows a bit cold. The pub is a popular place, there were always customers and they were all very kind, so as a tourist it is nice to have a talk to the locals. The village feels unbelievably...

Been visting this pub numerous times over the years, never disappoints, just wished lived nearer. Great food, steak and spitfire ale pie recommended, welcoming bar, good selection of ales and lagers. Food menu excellent, great team working there, owner always friendly.One of my favourite places to visit for a pint and something to eat. The village is really nice too.
