The inn is easily reached just off the M20 motorway, and within a 15 minute drive of Leeds Castle with its year round concerts and events. Eurostar at Ashford is only about a 35 minute drive away, and the county town of Maidstone with its many shops, services, rail links and heritage buildings is less than 9 miles from the inn.

Single occupancy is welcome in double and twin rooms.  A third or fourth guest can also be accommodated for an extra fee (£15 per person per night). Pets are welcome by arrangement (£10 per night)

A delicious range of fresh meals are served daily in the restaurant between 12 noon to 8.30pm.  Full a la carte menu and a daily range of specials are available.  Why not join us for Sunday Roast - one of the best served in Kent!

CAMRA members and real ale lovers are warmly welcomed - we offer 2 or 3 fine cask real ales each day of the week including some fantastic local Kentish gems like Tenterden's Old Dairy and Maidstone's Rockin Robin.  Local wines, apple juices and ciders from Biddenden Vineyards are also available.
