We stayed one night at The Duke William on a short break to Canterbury. The service really was excellent - our emailed queries were answered immediately and everyone at The Duke was incredibly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a great pub meal - try the chicory, pear and walnut salad for a starter and the amazing ice cream selection for...

We had a delicious meal, the variety and portion size both spot on, the staff were helpful, cheerful and enthusiastic. The decor and ambiance are perfect in this lovely pub in a beautiful village. Well worth a visit!

This would have been a 5* evening. Stunning village, lovely pub, fabulous food, great atmosphere. Busy, lively pub on a Monday evening. The restaurant was clean but the cleanliness of the toilets ruined the evening! Such a shame.

Stayed for my wife's birthday. The food is great (separate review done) but the hotel is sadly disappointing. Room was nice but dark with lighting that felt like an interrogation. The problem is that it lacked the sort of things to expect for what is a relatively expensive stay. No kettle so had to use the nespresso machine (not hot...

Enjoyed an excellent Monday night steak night! Superb value, quality along with friendly staff! I recommend the sirloin steak with blue cheese! Warm friendly atmosphere equally for drinking as well as dining.

A fantastic night's stay we had here! Free parking was one of the best things about here as so many places in and around Kent are super expensive to leave your car nearby. Situated above a pub, prior to 11pm it was rather noisy in the room but after this it was silent and both me and my husband slept...

Lovely welcoming pub with an open fire 🔥. Booked a table for an evening meal was disappointed with the table we were given as was right by bar and could see loads of empty tables around us . The starter was good but the main meal was a bit of a let down ......

What a great place to stay in this perfect village setting, with a small road in front facing an impressive church and fields at the rear. The four bedrooms are named after chefs - we had Floyd - with one of his books for company. Very comfortable and well appointed - had everything we needed. The nespresso machine was a...

Spent bonfire night at The Duke William & thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The pub is beautifully charming & has a real country pub feel. Bustling with locals & has a real good vibe. The rooms were a good size, with a great bed& shower. Very impressed with the rooms, think they have five in total. We stayed at the front...
