My partner and I recently visited this pub for the first and last time. 9/2/17 A planned date night for us, we were excited to have a great night out at a well reviewed country Pub. Upon arrival we walked into the bar/reception area, it was not particularly busy, we waited and waited and were not greeted. I got the... More

I chose this pub after reading views on Trip Advisor and looking at their website amongst others, I was looking for something traditional food wise and not 'gastro' and the Raglan answered my wishes. Lots of great baguettes hot and cold served with a salad garnish, traditional pub foods such as Ham, egg and chips, chilli with rice etc., good... More

After some disappointment in another establishment recently, we tried this pub on recommendation of our neighbor. The Lord Raglan is located away from he major roads but easy to find. The staff seemed not too welcoming, possibly and we were somewhat worried. Also we had to chose the meals from a blackboard on the wall which we did not found... More

We brought two business contacts for an informal lunch here. I had the steak baguette which is always good and they had prawn sandwiches and a cheese Sandwich which all had lots of filling and we're of high quality. Simple food that is tasty and good value. It's not posh but it's great pub food.

We found ourselves back at the Lord Raglan on Tuesday September 13th. Nothing has changed - and that is a big compliment! Good beer, great food, friendly staff and regulars all still contribute to the excellence of this the quintessential Kent pub. Highly recommended.

The pub was full of locals chatting away with dogs at their feet. We had a nice meal and the beer was good. Service was a bit slow but we weren't in a hurry

We had a nice meal but there were not enough staff before 7pm. Only one person who was behind the bar. We had to wait to be served drinks and again to order our meal (at the bar, as required). The service got better when more staff came on duty. The meal was fine. When the plates were being cleared... More
