We belong to the shepherd neame birthday club and we always seem to select the dog and bear. The food is excellent and the staff are really good too. Unfortunately one of the new staff had a slight mishap in that when clearing away our main meal the plates tipped and went all down my clean trousers. The manager and...

My partner stayed for Valentines night inc. a three course dinner and breakfast in the morning. The room was lovely, ALL the staff were friendly and helpful, dinner was very nice, the lemon posset dessert was to die for!

Friendly staff, good food & beer! Excellent showers. Felt like a home from home even on a first visit. Excellent breakfast choices all included in the B & B rate. Even a pool table and darts for a proper pub night out.

Small but adequate menu, service was good, food of real quality. Nice beers, pleasant location. Not overpriced in any way. There is plenty of room in the bar for informal meals and a dining area if you need a more traditional setting.

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...

Thank you to Brian, Anne and the team another great stay. 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...
