Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After a 5 hour journey we received a warm and friendly welcome from the owner and staff. A table for dinner was set up for us straight away and there was a good varied menu choice. We looked at the rooms before going and they did not disappoint. The room was tastefully decorated with furnishings to match. The bed was extremely comfortable and there were enough pillows. The tea tray was well stocked up and complimentary bottles of water were also on offer. The wardrobe had plenty of hangers and an iron and ironing board with a hair dryer was also there for you to use. A guest book had also been provided with useful information about the pub and local amenities, which was great when we needed to book a taxi. We booked the Sunday lunch with friends and were really pleased with the choice, quality and quantity of the food. We all agreed we hadn’t a roast anywhere that matched up to it! Breakfast choice was good and was very tasty too. We felt that the owners had really thought about a guests needs and had provided a service that was outstanding, we will definitely go back again.

We went for Sunday lunch and it was amazing! Huge portion sizes, extremely helpful waitress and even a great choice for the vegan and veggie guests! My husband nearly cried over the chocolate orange dessert so that is highly recommended! Owners are just a treat and very welcoming. We live in Eythorne but will be back very soon! Just a joy xx

Classic country pub with a warm welcome from the owners. We were part of a large group for Sunday 3 course lunch which is really good value with great portion sizes. The service was excellent and the food cooked to perfection. Delicious. We will return!

A proper local !!! It has a lovely atmosphere and a nice mix of friendly locals and visitors. We reserved a table for 2 on a Friday which was essential as it was busy by 645 ….the 2 female staff were lovely and explained the specials and showed us to a table in the snug . Our food was delicious, both had mains and a dessert and our dog was even taken care of with biscuits .. There are no machines , unobtrusive music , so just a great atmosphere of people chatting and laughing.. We regularly come to Ripple in our campervan and will always make a couple of visits to this great pub

25 of us adults and children have just been camping nearby for the weekend. We stumbled across this amazing pub whilst on a walk on Saturday and had a few drinks in the lovely garden. We asked if we could book a roast for the following day, not expecting they could cater for all of us last minute. Sunday we all arrived and the roast was amazing. Piping hot, plentiful fresh vegetables and boneless is cheesy cauliflower and broccoli you could only dream off. All the food came out at the same time, choice of pork, beef, chicken or mixed. Beautiful meat and puddings to die for. Highly recommend this amazing pub

Thus. pub is a treasure in hiding. In the middle of nowhere but as nice as it can be. Three rooms and ours was delightful. Comfy bed, great shower, and very quiet unless your neighbor has the tv on too late. Staff could not be nicer or more accommodating. Centrally located in Kent and near Solleys--best ice cream. I could not have been more pleased

Strange little place down narrow lanes off the Dover-Deal road. Ample parking. Stayed several nights; it was never really busy in the pub, a few locals. Good, large room. Adequate bath. Could use a new chair (or two.) As you would expect, it was quiet but I would suggest they not put their televisions on a shared wall with the room next door. Do they need tellies, really? Nice folks, good bar and breakfast service. Excellent eggs and bacon/sausage, etc. Added bonus - you’re very close to Solley’s Dairy Farm - fantastic ice cream.
