It’s been awhile since we came here but we still found the same warm governors with delicious food. What a lovely evening!

I arrived one afternoon just before 2pm enquiring as to whether there was a table available for a light lunch. We were told we had to order in the next 5mins before the kitchen closed - that was fine! We then enquired as to whether any food was gluten free, at which point the landlord looked like we had set fire to the place and just said curtly "No". Righto we thought - we will order something quick to eat so our friend didn't feel left out, whilst still eating something so as not to appear rude. When asked if we could have a couple of bowls of chips, we were told in no uncertain terms "that is not something we do" (despite the table behind us having just that!). With that, we drunk up very quickly and left. Instead we went to the Three Chimneys where they bent over backwards to help us, despite being incredibly busy (which the Red Lion most certainly wasn't). Being a local resident, I will never go here ever again

Went here with family whilst visiting in Headcorn.
Family member wanted to try it as he’d never been before.
Have to say the Pub itself is very nice with low beams and a nice ‘Homely’ feel to it.
The guy waiting on seemed to be a bit of a character but I found him nice enough as was the lady helping in the bar and also helping out with the waiting.
The food was nice enough but not particularly outstanding, that said there was nothing wrong with it and was fine.
I think to be fair where I live and work we are spoilt for choice with really good restaurants and eating establishments and we tend to take it for granted.
Would I recommend? Yes, the food is ok and the whole experience was a good one.

Stopped here for a drink last night, very old fashioned style public house. Full of old English charm. Very friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. We just had a drink, but they also serve food. Nicely positioned in the centre of Biddenden.

There was 6 of us for lunch we were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived we did not get rushed to be seated we had a drink at the bar then seated over two tables which gave us ample of room to eat , the service was quick lots of verity and all home made , piping hot , had no complaints at all , my partner had bread and butter pudding for desert and said it was the best he had ever tasted , Steve the host is very friendly and very attentive we all have been before and said that we will definitely be going back , in my opinion well worth a visit .
