Great time! Even though it was above a friendly neighborhood pub, it wasn't loud. Located in a beautiful area of England at the end of a one lane road. The room was very clean, warm, and plenty of hot water. The bed was comfortable and the room had plenty of charm! We ate dinner at the pub and the apple...

Visited here on a recent trip out with friends. Great food, nice selection of guest beers and good selection on menu all at very reasonable prices. Very freindly staff and set in a wonderful 16th century inn in beautiful Kent countryside. We will definately be back.

Been twice in December, once as a couple and once with friends, both lunchtimes. Excellent menu. Fair prices, super portions, and very good quality. We will be back. Also does rooms. 'Out in the sticks' be careful driving there.

Stayed at the bowl inn for our wedding night in the cottage. Wow wow wow. Beautiful decor, spotlessly clean, and incredibly comfortable. They made us feel welcome and looked after us so well! We visit regularly for drinks and food, so will definitely be back. Loved it! Only complaint is we didn't book for long enough!!

We met friends here for dinner and decided to stay over. We stayed in the luxury suite, which I must stay was fantastic. The suite had a bedroom, lounge and lovely bathroom with a roll top bath and separate double shower cubicle. The decor was fab and it was warm and homely. There was a coffee machine and kettle with...
