I can't review the food as it never came. After an hours wait we got a refund and left. I did feel bad for the poor girl serving at the bar as she was on her own and doing a great job. However, the theme of understaffing seemed to extend to the kitchen as well. As we waitied we just... More

Stopped for a pit stop in this lovely 14th Century pub on a meandering road trip through the old roads of Kent. Reputedly haunted, since the beautiful old inglenook fireplace was uncovered in the '50s apparently pint glasses regularly fall off the shelves and land unbroken and standing up! Chilham itself is beautiful and both pub and village are well... More

Idylic and characteristical English pub, set in the beauutifully sleepy village of Chilham. My boyfriend and I spent a very cosey evening here, sat in front of the a gorgeous open fire. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food and drink was lovely and the service was even better; Debbie was particularly accomodating and... More

The pub itself is lovely. Although not sure about the tables and chairs. The beer and wine was good and reasonably priced. We went today for lunch for my birthday, and found the menu to be very uninspiring. Unfortunately we decided to give it a go. We both chose egg, chips, peas, ham and tomato. The meal arrived very quickly... More

Pub does need a bit of an update, some of the chairs feel like they were going to break when sat on. Food was excellent with generous portions. The pudding was the let down as it was half the price of the food and it was a tiny piece. The gave it 3 stars because of the food or it... More

Very relaxing afternoon spent in The White Horse, my GF and I stopped and eat late Sunday afternoon. We used The Tatse card promotion for our meals. The pub sports a huge open fire with a central bar dividing the venue into two sections. The female staff member was very friendly and engaging, we enjoyed the food, and would recomend... More

The White Horse has become mine and my husbands new local favourite over the past year. The staff are friendly and so are the locals. It's very rare that you can walk into a pub these days where someone will say hello to you and make you feel welcome. The White Horse offers generous portions for reasonable prices and there...

Went to visit the beautiful village of Chilham for the day and came across the white horse pub which looked very nice . Outside was a board showing set menu which looked reasonably priced. So we decided to go in for lunch. Bad mistake . We all regretted it. We were not welcomed by anybody . When one member of... More
