Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Attractive inside and out’, Dane and Sarah Allchorne’s ‘excellent’ pub-with-rooms has ‘plenty of atmosphere’. A cheerful, informal spot, it’s equally pleasing for its modish interiors as it is for its good-humoured, village-hub feel. (The wood-fired pizza oven on the terrace is a nice touch, too.) Tuck in to Dane Allchorne’s uncomplicated, seasonal pub fare in the bar or on the sunny terrace or lawn; more adventurous dishes (lime-seared red snapper, pickled cucumber, peashoot salad) are served in the smartly rustic dining room. Up the stairs, airy bedrooms (Byre, Buttery, Churn and Dairy) are painted in dairy creams and milky whites; a family room sleeps four. Mornings, a copious breakfast (‘very good, but a little slow’) is just right for the half-mile walk to Sissinghurst Castle garden. Bar, restaurant (‘easy listening’ background music, closed Sun eve). Private dining. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Sun terrace and large garden (alfresco meals, pond, children’s play area). Parking. Children welcomed (special menu). 4 bedrooms (1 family room). Per room B&B £80–£140. 2-night min. stay at weekends.

Guest comments

'We had three enjoyable nights here in February. A very comfortable room, though no hook on the bathroom-door. The food was good from a small, unchanging menu; one night we had bar-snacks-just as good despite the owners being away. ' - Mary Milne-Day - February, 2017
'What an excellent place. Plenty of atmosphere. The service and dinner were excellent. Breakfast, though very good, was a bit slow. ' - Gwyn Morgan - May, 2016
