We have followed the growth of this Pub since back in the '90s. Then it was just a very good Pub in Pembury High Street. It expanded into a pub with a restaurant and garden. The restaraunt now has one of the most comprehensive menu cards that can be found anywhere locally and beyond, well cooked, well presented and good...

The place itself inside is rather quaint and pleasant and I believe it has a good reputation. A group of us had lunch there recently and got mixed reviews. The staff were friendly enough for the most part and service speed was fine. The issue for me was more the food. It tried a bit too hard and didn't deliver...

Stayed here several times on business. Roomy comfortable room and excellent food and drink showing some flair by the chef. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. Ample free parking on site.

My wife and I stayed here on Christmas Night 2016 whilst visiting relatives in Tonbridge. Room number 8 was booked for us by our daughter-in-law. We don’t know the managers/owners, they are not paying us, and this is the first time I’m looking up information about The Camden Arms. I say this because everything I’m going to write will take...

A big thank you to the owners and staff who really looked after my father. He had to stay for nearly two weeks as my mother was seriously ill. Everyone helped my dad in his stay looking out for him and helping with taxis and a friendly smile and greeting on seeing him. Made a traumatic experience more manageable.

I went with three friends for a pre-Christmas lunch. I ordered prawn cocktail as a starter which had far too much 'greenery.' My main was PESTO chicken breast and I had the option of vegetables from the Carvery or plated up in the kitchen - I opted for the latter. When my meal arrived the chicken was topped with chopped...

We stayed here for one night and that was enough. The owners/managers are rude, unpleasant and very aggressive in tone if you point out any problems. Bed very hard, room too dark with ALL the lights on to apply make up, view of an unkempt back garden, toilet flush too slow filling, shower dial means you HAVE to go through...

I fine your personal comment difficult to understand. The only time i spoke to you was to ask if you would like tea or coffee, and that i would cook the eggs for you. The only other verbal contact was when you passed the reception, in what can only be described as an angry rant. Other guests were appalled by...

We were only staying one night and ended up with the 4 poster bed room. On a wet day in November the room was warm and clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was big and powerful. What more could you ask for? As football fans we were eager to watch the England Scotland game and fortunately found a...

We've been a number of times for dinner, both as a couple and with family. They have great home cooked food. Only criticism is that on two occasions with a group of 7, they really struggled and even missed one persons meal completely. their meal finally appears as 6 others finish... a bit awkward. Junior staff were nervous, inexperienced and...
