About the hotel

17th century pub/restaurant with award winning food, fine wines and real ale. In the heart of Kent countryside, at the foot of the North Downs. Beautiful gardens with fountains, ponds and alfresco dining on the terrace.

Adorned with Kent hops and a lovely open fire place in the winter. Perfect location for walks and only 10 minutes from Leeds Castle. The ideal base for touring Kent or visiting London. Thirty beautiful en suite rooms situated in an annexe, complete with courtyard and fish pond. In an area designated 'area of outstanding natural beauty' there is an excellent network of public footpaths, bridleways and byways. There are scores of places to visit and within walking distance is the Kent country showground with its year round calendar of events. We are now a Freehouse which has been run by the same family for the past 14 years.

The Black Horse Inn

Have stayed here once before and as it was before, the staff were very welcoming, the food was excellent and the room was very comfortable.

Although a very busy place if its peace quiet your after then this is just rite.

I have stayed at the Black Horse Inn a couple of times.

The accommodation is separate from the pub on the hill immediately below. The rooms are clustered together in nicely arranged groups, each with plenty of parking. It's about a two minute walk from the lowest, back up to the pub. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and well appointed. The pub it's self is charming and lively (on the Friday nights I stayed) I did not eat dinner there but breakfast was lovely. the staff are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay on both occasions and would happily recommend the establishment.
