I wanted a quick lunch so went for their wild boar pate. The pate tasted OK, but was oddly encased in some flaccid pastry, and the toast served with it was from bog-standard white sliced bread. Just not good enough. Note - I am rating this as a restaurant, not a hotel.

Full of young noisy, swearing people, an absolutely awful place in such a lovely part of the world, the only other choice in the village is the rose and Crown hidden down a little track, take my advice and stay well clear of this place, it really is that bad.

Motel has lovely big clean rooms in annexe but it needs a lot of updating. Need new mattress and have to get rid of mould in shower. We discovered when leaving that the glass sliding door can't lock. We appreciated the wonderful location and views from here. Free Parking and welcome tray with tea, coffee etc was a welcome addition....

Visited this motel just on a walk in basis. We had always promised ourselves we would stay one day & as the weather so nice driving back from Rye we decided to see if they had a room. Initially I was told (after having to wait for the barman to finish watching an Olympic event with a group of men...

Where to begin, we booked for Saturday night and after reading a few reviews on Trip Advisor we were going with mixed opinions. On arrival the place looked lovely with a lovely garden offering you magnificent views but that is where the good points stopped. We entered the pub behind a massive screen showing tv and the place was busy...

We visited The Bear Inn as a group of 8 on the last night of our hols, having visited on a previous occasion. The staff were polite and helpful and our meals were presented nicely. Unfortunately we had to skip dessert as the desserts we were hoping for they didn't have. The garden is very well kept and has the...
