Rooms are nicely and warmly decorated. I really enjoyed having a bath in their nice bathroom... The room is perfect to rest and recover after a week of work.
Surrounded by nature, really calm nights.
Dislikes:
I absolutely recommend this place!
(Avoid the room above the kitchen according to our friends it was noisy...)

"Comfortable and clean accommodation; staff all very friendly and helpful."
We stayed one night of a 3-day/4-night walking holiday along the North Downs Way and had dinner in the pub downstairs. Huge portions (maybe a little huge for some!) Delicious breakfast. However, no wifi and poor phone signal inside. There is a nice walking route from Bowl Inn to Charing, nicer than the one we took to get there (via Hart Hill, a road), but be aware that some footpaths shown on OS map across fields in the area are not marked, save for a fingerpost showing the direction.

Likes:
Breakfast was great. Staff all very friendly. Room very comfortable. Noise from pub negligible.
Dislikes:
No wifi. Would also have preferred a detachable-head shower to the fixed overhead one.

This 16th Century free house is situated on top of the North Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Bowl Inn is now under new ownership and the owners are putting their stamp on this charming country Inn. So come and enjoy our newly refurbished bar and warm yourself by the open fire.

Sample our tried and tested menu bursting with traditional country pub classics. We strive to use locally sourced ingredients of the highest quality so what’s not to love! Indulge on succulent steaks, classic pies, home cooked ham, slow cooked beef brisket and a lovely roast dinner on a Sunday afternoon.

Food is served Monday to Friday 12-3pm & 6-9pm, Saturdays 12-9pm, Sundays 12-5pm.

For those not content to just relax there is no shortage of walks where you can take in some of the breath taking views across the Downs. If you want to explore further afield we are also close to Canterbury, Dover, Faversham, Hythe and many more of Kent's beautiful towns.

Added to this is an extensive rural garden and south facing front sun terrace which is covered and heated on those more typical English summer days!

As the home of one of Kent's most popular Beer Festivals, four top condition Real Ales are always available. Sample some of Kent's award winning local real ales from breweries such as Hopdaemon, Old Dairy, Gadds, Whitstable Brewery, Wantsum and more. We offer a wide range of Lagers, Wines and Spirits.
