This is a great friendly old Inn with a lot of history. The bar and restroom areas are very quaint. The hotel staff is perhaps the friendliest and most accommodating I have ever encountered. The inn is VERY old (1400's). Age implies that the walls and floors won't be straight, rooms, entries, stairwells will all be small and narrow. If this is a problem for you, take this into account, I personally found it all charming.

Was at a wedding in Whitstable, decided to stay out of town in Barham, and what a pretty little village it is.
Our room was comfortable with nice en suite and a comfy bed.
We were above the kitchen so we could hear the chef singing downstairs!
Whilst we didn't use it, there's a lovely big beer garden with a big play castle for kids, as well as a few chickens and ducks to look at.
Big screen outside was showing Wimbledon too - nice touch on a sunny day!!
Our only suggestion where they could improve would be to put a light on or around the fire escape which you use to access the hotel after the pub has locked up for the night.
We stayed at the Woolpack in Chilham with our two children and mother-in-law. The Family Room was very comfortable with separate rooms for the children and parents. The food at the Woolpack is excellent and the staff were lovely. The small village of Chilham is quiet and beautiful and convenient for Hever Castle and Canterbury. The room rates were very reasonable. Thank you for your hospitality!
