Welcome to the Dog & Bear

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 stylish hotel and restaurant.

Rooms and facilities here have all been recently refurbished to the highest standards, but a sense of history pervades the place too. Originally built in 1602, the hotel was visited by Queen Anne in 1704 - and her coat of arms is still displayed above the door today.

It’s only right then that visitors here get a royally warm welcome, and indeed, whether you’re popping in for a quick pint or checking in for a weekend break, you can expect the same friendly service.

Of course, there’s majestic food and drink, too. First-class ales, world wines and traditional, freshly prepared pub dishes make The Dog and Bear one of Lenham’s favourite destinations for dinner and drinks - with a courtyard garden the crowning glory in summer.
