A suite stay at a recently renovated 13th-century award-winning pub, with full English breakfast and three-course dinner

With its impressive kitchen team and equally as impressive locally brewed real ales, it's easy to see why The Dog at Wingham was named the best pub in Kent and one of the best pubs in Britain at The National Pub & Bar Awards 2017. Book a stay here and you’ll find owner Marilyn Bridgen and her family take hospitality seriously. Marilyn even lovingly renovated every square inch of this 13th-century pub.

The result sees eight individually designed guestrooms combining extra-comfy Hypnos beds and modern en-suite bathrooms with statement traditional features such as four-poster beds. Enlisting Head Chef Dan Johns, the restaurant also serves up its own twist on classic pub dishes. Expect seasonal flavours and the finest local ingredients Kent has to offer, complementing the impressive surroundings here. It's no surprise The Dog at Wingham has earned a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
