Likes:
Friendliness, comfy bed, good breakfast.
Dislikes:
The reason for not giving an overall 'excellent' was that there was a slight smell of cat in the room. It might have emanated from the new bathroom fittings.

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.
