Absolutely appalling place. I had the beef roast 'special', and the beef was absolutely terrible. It tasted like an unwashed love bucket with a yeast infection (and believe me I know what that tastes like). I can't believe that I paid almost eight pounds for a meal and didn't get one cooked by a gourmet chef. Watchdog have been informed, and I will be calling Claims Direct for reimbursement of fuel on my VW beetle (52 plate soft-top with sunflower decals and cow print seat covers)

Lovely place- large roomy bar area, plenty of seating, dining area, plenty of car park spaces to the rear. A good (and now scarce) example of a traditional syle country pub. Drinks all of a good choice, friendly and welcoming service. We didnt eat but I understand the food is all freshly cooked rather than the reheated quick cook types of meals- I will try some food there next time . Why cant other places be a good as this- because not all places have good management- and the Tickled Trout does seem well run. Well worth a visit.

Nice enough garden & setting but the slow service doesn't provide the sort of quality of food we were hoping for. It was nothing amazing, just basic pub grub. Also quite expensive. I wouldn't rush back there in a hurry.

the food and service you get here is amazing! one of my favourite restuarants, which is only five minutes down the road!

I was invited to attend a lunch time business meeting at the Tickled Trout. I joked I only knew of one Tickled Trout and that was in Lancashire near Preston, but I was told this one near Maidstone was worth a visit. It had a good car park.
I arrived early (no delays on the motorways 25 and 20) and was greeted most courteously by a lady at the bar who most politely worked out the name of whom the tables were booked in (I didn't know). The manager/proprietor Alan was most welcoming and laughed when I commented about the other Tickled Tourt and it transpired he know of it and been there. When my colleagues arrived we were seated at tables in the alcove so that we could meet and discuss and not intrude into the privacy of others enjoying lunch. There were five of us lunching and we all enjoyed the main course (and the desserts): mine was fish and chips with peas- it was served on a hot plate and was smooth and fine.
Pudding of syrup sponge was so good I was reminded of my mother's cooking - very homely.
A brilliant pub - no loud or mind-bending music. The serving staff attentive, interested, and caring. The gent's toilets clean, tidy and without any pong - a credit to the cleaning staff.
When I arrived home I told my wife we would be returning for lunch or dinner.
By the way the total bill five lunches and drinks was far less than one course at the Goring hotel in London.
I know of nothing to discredit this pub. It offered Good Value, Good Service, and Cleanliness. I rate it Highly.
