When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and shown to our bedroom which was roomy and very comfortable. The young woman... More

I have been past this pub on several occasions but this was my first time that I have been inside for a meal. I found the decor very inviting and homely, with the log fire being lit. We all enjoyed our food and found it to be reasonably priced. I would recommend the beef burger as it was made with... More

We opted to stay here for something different on a visit to Canterbury. It was a great choice. The rooms are fun and large with exposed beams and plenty of space. They are in a converted stables and have everything we needed. Only issue was low water pressure at peak shower time (room 5), which quickly improved after a few... More

Lovely old village pub with fantastic food and lovely accommodation. This friendly pub is a great place to stay with a great owner who obviously loves his job. After eating a magnificent two course dinner we ended up in a beautiful bedroom and so full the next morning couldn't manage Xander's famous breakfast. Rest assured we will be back for... More

We were not guests of the Inn but choose to dine there in several occasions during our holiday. We especially liked the fireplace dining room and the quiet and cozy atmosphere. The service was excellent and fast, the food was delicious and for a reasonable price. Strongly recommended!!

2 adults, 2 kids (11/10) (Don't think there was a kids menu) It was steak night; great value steaks with chunky chips, huge cheesecake, decent beer, friendly service, unpretentious welcoming ambience, sitting next to log fire. Just what we needed after a long journey.

The rooms are in an annex and ours (room 5) was fine. It was upstairs, windows looking into a courtyard behind the main inn building. The room was very large with a double bed, and en-suite toilet, sink, bath with shower attachment. We parked close to our room without problem and parking appeared to be plentiful. The carpet in the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We would like to welcome you to the Rose & Crown Inn, Elham. (AA 4 Star). A traditional 16th century coaching inn with our main Restaurant and Bar situated in the main building. Our rooms were once stables from the days when the inn served as a coaching stop on the way from Folkestone to Canterbury. The accommodation is located ideally for visiting many tourist attractions and local sites. Elham is a delightful Kentish village nestled in the heart of the Elham Valley, a popular destination for walkers and cyclists, We are close to Canterbury, Dover and the Channel Tunnel, Ashford International and Sandwich.The pub itself was built in the 16th Century and features oak beams and open fires. The north end of the building used to be the local courthouse, and the first game of Bar Billiards in England was played here in 1935. ... more   less
