Staff are helpful and service is good here. Place to go for a comfy relaxing meal. Food choice covers a reasonable range and the quality is good. Not used the accomodation but it looks well kept. Country location in a quiet lane within easy distance of Maidstone Town centre.

The Black Horse inn was a lovely countryside break, perfect location close to Maidstone town centre. The room was well-equipped and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was a let down, the shower is in real need of an update as it was difficult to get a consistent temperature.
