Everything about this wonderful inn is just perfect.
Checked in by a warm and friendly guy who explained everything.
Our room had lovely extra touches like homemade shortbread and real coffee and a cafetière. The bed was super comfy with lovely bed linen. Was pleasantly surprised by the size of the bathroom and powerful shower considering it’s a 16c inn.
Dinner was delicious, great menu and great service.

We loved our stay and look forward to returning.

This was a great find. Friendly welcome, good food (evening meal and breakfast) and a clean comfortable room. The location is in a quiet town but handy for the main roads so exploring Kent or getting to the channel ports is easy.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night at the White Horse, which was excellent value and on our way to the ferry port (35 mins drive). We found all the staff welcoming, attentive and helpful. Breakfast and dinner was served in the lovely restaurant of the 15th century inn with lots of character. The rooms are very comfy, nice towels and toiletries and a plush bed. There is an honesty bar and snacks at the end of the corridor which is a nice touch.

We would have no hesitation in making a return visit to this charming hotel. Keep up the good work.

Room tip: There’s lots of parking Book restaurant for dinner ahead of arrival

We did arrive a little earlier than scheduled, however we were checked in and asked if we would like to have a cool drink in the bar, whilst we waited; no problem as it gave us an opportunity to look around this charming restaurant with rooms/hotel. Our ground floor room was large as was the bathroom, which has a walk in wet room area. Bed was a tad firm, but extra pillows were in place as requested. A busy road, so a room at the rear of the hotel is a good idea, they do provide ear plugs! Great position near Faversham and Whitstable. We also visited Ramsgate, with history and connections with the Dunkirk evacuation, the town is quite run down. Food at the hotel was from an excellent menu, cooked and served with skill. The young antipodean owners are on top of their game, as are most of the staff. Try to get room Number One, and for more than one night. Enjoy.

Room tip: Room at the rear as noisy road.

We arranged to go out to dinner with a couple of old friends that we hadn't seen for a while.

We had a table booked in the restaurant for 8pm. When we arrived we were shown to our table. There were two large tables set up in the centre of the restaurant. The one nearest to our table had probably in excess of twenty people on it and it was very noisy.

During the course of our meal the noise was such that it was barely possible to have a conversation on our table. In fact the waitress had trouble hearing us when she took our orders. The delay between courses was a bit long and we had to ask for a jug of water three times before one was delivered.

As the other diners started to finish their meal,
a number of them grouped themselves near the bar, which was near our table, talking very loudly with loutish behaviour and using foul language.

Having eaten our food when a table became free in the small bar close by we moved to a table there to finish our bottle of wine. It was much quieter here.

When we asked for our bill there was optional 12.5% service charge which we decided not to pay. I also sked for about a 10% reduction on the bill because of the amount of noise in the restaurant where we had eaten our meal.

The manager refused my request and at times got quite confrontational.

I told him that this was our fifth time eating at his restaurant. He obviously didn't believe me. Up until this time on previous occasions the front of house had been handled by a tall lady who chatted to us and was very nice

By now all the management seemed to be interested in was serving drinks and cocktails to these two large party's.

I said to the manager that it was unlikely to return to the restaurant. He made a reply something like you can find another pub to rip off!

We paid our bill and left!

I suggest if you book here you make sure there are no large parties booked into the dining room.

Room tip: Make sure there are no large parties booked in or you may have a similar experience to us. If you want a quiet table see if you can get one in the small bar.
