We stayed for 2nights to visit family and I booked over the phone and asked for a nice room and received room 8 the four poster at the front of hotel. The room was clean and the bed comfortable but alas noisy due to being on the road and above the bar but no ones fault as after all inn's in ye olden days were at the roadside. ( cars not invented)
The traffic also started EARLY so be warned and some traffic at night and as it was warm you couldn't keep your bedroom window open due to this .
The pub is full of character and has that lovely old world feeling that modern refurbished pubs lack and leave's them souless, the White Horse retains that and oozes atmosphere.
If I could pick up on anything and I don't want to be negative in any way is we have never been served such tiny breakfasts anywhere we have ever been. Now we are not in any way piggies at all but it was small.
A single slice of cooked tomato with a spoonful of scrambled egg with a single veggie sausage and a few beans ........I had to ask for more toast to compensate but obviously didn't want to look greedy by asking for more. My partner being a big lad of 6'2 just tutted and got on with it .
I also felt the stairs and the bar and restaurant area including our breakfast table which was sticky just needed a good scrub as it smelt and looked dirty. Sorry only saying what my eyes saw and my nose smelt.
We would return but don't think Tara would let us now but I'm only giving a review on our experience.
Kind regards Genie.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The White Horse in Boughton-under-Blean is a historic inn and restaurant with more than its fair share to offer guests. Not only is this ancient coaching inn mentioned in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, but its location in a glorious village surrounded by hop field lined walks to Mount Ephraim Gardens and the site of The Peasant’s Last Revolt recommend this excellent stop before one even ventures inside. As you may well hope, The White Horse is beautifully traditional inside, with roaring log fires, low-beamed ceilings and a cosy, intimate feel. Meanwhile, outside beautiful landscaping has turned a pleasant pub garden into an Englishman’s dream. Our locally sourced British food has elevated The White Horse to gastropub levels with our chef's combination of creativity and talent, providing guests with the opportunity to enjoy high level food in the most comfortable of atmospheres. Sunday lunches take place weekly and jazz suppers are a regular occasion featuring award-winning vocalist Christine Tobin. Located in a village but within easy reach of the channel crossings and many local attractions such as Canterbury Cathedral, Dover and Leeds Castle, golf courses, beaches, nature reserves and zoos, the White Horse is an ideal place to stay to explore the wonderful Kent countryside. And if walking, there are many stunning walking routes on our doorstep. We welcome walkers, cyclists, dogs and families! Our 13 bedrooms are beautiful with everything you would expect from a modern hotel, including free wi-fi, extensive parking, disabled access, restaurant and bar. The combination of the pub’s history and first-class service guarantees return visits. ... more less
