My wife and I had been to Tunbridge Wells and decided to eat lunch on way home. We went to Pembury by chance and chose the Camden Arms. What a find friendly staff, good menu good food. Lambs liver, Goats cheese tart and two nice glasses of Sauvignon Blanc. Good price £38.70 (£15.00 for drinks)

Nice and friendly family pub. Ordered the ribs and they were huge! They were tasty however too much sauce on the ribs made them sickly. Didn't hear anybody complain in regards to the carvery. Would recommend!

We stayed here and it had pros and cons. Pros were the large selection of breakfast options. Also the separate key door, so we could come back at any hour. Free parking too. Cons included that the rooms are dated, not only in design, but the fact the hairdryer is attached to the chest of drawers! Another con was feather... More

My husband and I visited this pub today for a late lunch. I had the battered haddock and chips with mushy peas and my husband had the sizzling chicken fajitas. Both meals were excellent. The staff were friendly and the service was very good.

There were 11 of us for lunch on Tuesday, there is an extensive food menu and it was hard what to choose. The food arrived piping hot and was delicious. Highly recommended.

All were served plated but had spent far too long in a warmer and had all but dried out. The plates were already full when four more vegetables were... More

We decided to pop here for lunch, we arrived and were soon shown to our table and the menu arrived with a good choice of options plus there was a roast on as well, we all struggled to make our mind up as everything sounded good.. Once we decided what we wanted we sat and had a chat before the... More

Having visited this pub a few times, the food is really good but unfortunately certain staff seem not to like children, and it mars the visit somewhat.
