It was a long walk from where we were staying but it was worth it. I went with five friends and we got a lovely reception from the staff, having never been there before. Recommendations were made on beer and tasting offered. We had a very pleasant dinner, mine was the lemon sole, which was beautifully cooked. Companions who had... More

Booked up and were glad we did as the pub was very busy. Both the landlady and landlord were attentive and helpful. The food arrived quickly and was lovely with great crispy parsnips. The beef was the best I have had at a pub Sunday lunch, sirloin. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the atmosphere was brilliant. Puddings were the normal... More

Was a darts night and busy with regulars. Had to wait ages to be served as bar maid made sure she looked after her regulars before acknowledging us. When I ordered from the cocktail menu, which is displayed prominently above the bar, the bar maid pulled such a miserable face and told me I'd have to wait a while. Making... More

We booked the Hampton for a Sunday lunch for my mum's 70th. Georgina the landlady was great at communicating with us beforehand and made us feel that everything was in capable hands (esp as we don't live locally so it was all by phone and email). On the day, the pub was busy but the team there had decorated our... More

Visited on a Monday night, ignored at bar for ages over regulars, then when finally served bar maid pulls a face and suggests i may have a long wait. The cocktails are advertised all over and above the bar. If you cant be bothered making them then don't advertise so blatantly! Poor customer service. Definitely won't return here 😡

Came for Sunday lunch today, was very busy but nice atmosphere. Serves was a little slow but it was very busy so it was fine- not much choice for fussy eaters like me but my family had a good choice of roast dinners. Pudding was lovely and lovely pub! Dog friendly pub, and good views.

Yet again had a Fabulous Roast dinner with friends.. Great service as one friend has bad toothache and they went out there way for a lighter lunch for him... Nothing is too much trouble... Can't wait for the hot sunnier days and sit outside.. Cheers erupted guys 👍.

I meant to write this review last month after I celebrated my birthday with a few friends here. I had previously booked my meal at another well known pub in Herne Bay who informed me at the last minute that they had double-booked me and could no longer accommodate the amount of people I required. Being that this was two... More
