My partner and I are regulars here, it's such a cosy pub perfect for a Sunday lunch- lovely open fires, friendly staff and great food. All the locals are chatty and they don't mind our 15 month old running about after her lunch :) One of my favs .

Xander, the landlord is a great host, we were warmly welcomed. The room was large, with a very comfortable bed and en suite bathroom. I particularly enjoyed the large open fires and the breakfasts. Delicious local produce, in particular the Ottinge farm yoghurts. The Rose and Crown is a lovely pub with lots of great beers on tap. Elham is...

We stopped at the Rose and Crown recently on a quick trip to Ashford/Canterbury. It is a delightful old pub, full of history and character. There were several cosy fires burning on the night that we visited - great for sitting in front of while having a quiet drink, or while browsing the fabulous dinner menu. The food was great,...

Perfect for a night stop en route to the Tunnel. Wish we could have stayed longer. Two of our family joined us for supper in the cosy dining room and we all enjoyed the firelight and the good food. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and shown to our bedroom which was roomy and very comfortable. The young woman...

I have been past this pub on several occasions but this was my first time that I have been inside for a meal. I found the decor very inviting and homely, with the log fire being lit. We all enjoyed our food and found it to be reasonably priced. I would recommend the beef burger as it was made with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We would like to welcome you to the Rose & Crown Inn, Elham. (AA 4 Star). A traditional 16th century coaching inn with our main Restaurant and Bar situated in the main building. Our rooms were once stables from the days when the inn served as a coaching stop on the way from Folkestone to Canterbury. The accommodation is located ideally for visiting many tourist attractions and local sites. Elham is a delightful Kentish village nestled in the heart of the Elham Valley, a popular destination for walkers and cyclists, We are close to Canterbury, Dover and the Channel Tunnel, Ashford International and Sandwich.The pub itself was built in the 16th Century and features oak beams and open fires. The north end of the building used to be the local courthouse, and the first game of Bar Billiards in England was played here in 1935. ... more   less
