Enjoyed a great roast beef dinner with my wife sitting in the secluded and tranquil riverside garden. Lots of seating and friendly service. Good pint of Whitstable Ale but other ales had run out. Will certainly be going again. The garden also has a play area for families with young children.

We arrived late night and were made welcome immediately. A decent pint of ale was soon in my hands and good natured banter with the locals ensued. The room was adequate and bed extremely comfortable. The traditional English breakfast, of your choice, is as good as you will find. Nicely presented, clean, and cooked as I like it. The gardens...

Stayed here for one night as somewhere to put our heads down following a wedding nearby. The accomodation was ok. The bed was comfortable but small for a double. The bathroom could do with a little modernisation. The pub has plenty of character with wooden beams and creaky floorboards throughout. Food was good, we had lunch the day of arrival....

I am sorry you found our staff "strange" we are complimented constantly on their warm and welcoming nature. There is no damp in the rooms and we had had our carpets cleaned two weeks previous to your viewing so cannot imagine the smell you are referring to! Far from being off white our bedding is provided by a reputable commercial...

We have yet again had a superb meal at this very friendly pub. The gardens are looking great, plenty of seating amongst the flowers...and very friendly and chatty service!! Very strongly recommended. The prices, particularly the Senior Citizens menu is very tasty and well presented.

Overal it was a lovely place to stay. The massive downfall was how dirty the room was. The coffee was out of date, lamp was so dusty, kettle was broken under the beds thick with dirt. The cutlery was in useable as was stained and dirty, location amazing, garden even better and the bar was nice. It's very small area...
