We ate here the other week and the whole package was just what we enjoy. Good friendly, patient service, freshly cooked, delicious food. Quality wine at a very reasonable price. In other words, a most enjoyable evening.

I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Beautiful big rooms, great food and the landlord and lady couldn't do enough to make our stay as special as possible. Will definitely be visiting again! Thank you!

Great to see that the present landlord and landlady have really turned this business around since the previous owners left and developed a well run and inviting establishment. The food is excellent and the ambience terrific. Well worth a visit.

Such a beautiful building, cosy and welcoming. We had a wonderful meal during which we enjoyed live music. Helen and Eric were warm and friendly, we very much felt at home. The room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and superbly cooked. I most definitely would visit again.

Architecturally, this is an ancient building with references to circa 1614. The food was excellent and I was tempted into three courses when I would usually settle for two....

We were looking for a weekend away with a trip to Canterbury. I found this beautiful 15th century Hotel. I cannot recommend this enough. The staff greeted us by opening the door on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. The Hotel was so interesting with a lot of history. The rooms were so delightful, each one very different and big...
