WelcomeEscape from the everyday to a historic Kentish retreat.
Overlooking the picturesque village square, The Dog and Bear Hotel in Lenham combines the friendly atmosphere of a local pub with all the comforts of a modern hotel and restaurant.
And while rooms and facilities have been recently refurbished to the highest standards, a sense of history pervades this place too. Built in 1602, the hotel was visited by Queen Anne in 1704 - her coat of arms still displayed above the door today.
Offering beautiful accommodation near Leeds Castle and The North Downs, The Dog and Bear boasts 24 en-suite bedrooms.
The immaculate rooms are decorated in traditional village style, lending to the hotel’s historic atmosphere while still providing all the modern comforts you’d expect from a first-class hotel.
With a range of traditional classics all freshly prepared, The Dog and Bear is the restaurant in Lenham for first-rate food.
Our plates are presented with care and imagination – always fresh, seasonal and using local produce wherever possible.

It is ideally placed, too, to explore Lenham village and its beautiful countryside – though of course you’re equally welcome to ‘stay in’ with a fabulous pint of Kentish Ale, live sport on TV and pool and darts to keep you busy!.
