About the hotel

This 16th Century free house is situated on top of the North Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Bowl Inn is now under new ownership and the owners are putting their stamp on this charming country Inn. So come and enjoy our newly refurbished bar and warm yourself by the open fire.

We are now serving our hearty winter menu, perfect for those rainy days. Choose from braised lamb shoulder, griddled pork loin, homemade pies, steaks, burgers, roast beef and many more winter warmers. Food is served Monday to Friday 12-3pm & 6-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, Sundays 12-5pm. For those not content to just relax there is no shortage of walks where you can take in some of the breath taking views across the Downs. If you want to explore further afield we are also close to Canterbury, Dover, Faversham, Hythe and many more of Kent's beautiful towns. Added to this is an extensive rural garden and south facing front sun terrace which is covered and heated on those more typical English summer days! As the home of one of Kent's most popular Beer Festivals, four top condition Real Ales are always available. Sample some of Kent's award winning local real ales from breweries such as Hopdaemon, Old Dairy, Gadds, Whitstable Brewery, Wantsum and more. We offer a wide range of Lagers, Wines and Spirits.

Nice pub with rooms

Out of the way pub, very popular with locals with friendly service.

Helpful staff. Rooms quite nice but lacking area for business visitor to work. Poor shower but nice bathroom generally. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast cooked to order with good ingredients. Poor (non-existent) mobile signal and variable WiFi signal is less than optimal.

Bowled Over

We stayed for two nights whilst visiting Leeds Castle.

The pub is very friendly and welcoming, lots of locals made it lively on our arrival on Friday evening. The room was great, nice hot bath and shower available and a comfortable bed. We ate at the Bowl Inn both nights and could not fault our meals (fabulous fillet steak), all served by cheerful staff. Breakfast was good too, although quite large. The only downside for us was the fact that the toilets were being re-fitted and our room was directly above, making for a noisy Saturday afternoon when we got back after the exertion of Leeds Castle. On the whole we would recommend this Inn and would definitely return.
