Historic hospitality

The Dog & Bear is a beautiful 17th century hotel in Lenham. Rooms here have all been recently refurbished to the highest standards, but a sense of history pervades too.

Originally built in 1602, our historic pub and hotel was visited by Queen Anne in 1704 - and her coat of arms is still displayed above the door today.

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.

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