We walked here on a sunny Sunday and found the place to be full of charm. The landlord was most accommodating, and definitely on top of his beers as two were changed whilst we were there, and one not deemed quite ready due to more settling required. I had the Tonbridge Traditional which was great. Nice cheap round. Saw a "small" portion of chips come out of the kitchen which was massive. As always, take previous 'foody' reviews with a pinch of salt. The Padwell Arms is a lovely characteristic pub, well worth the visit!

The food was mediocre at best, but it was the extra insult of the astonishing rip-off prices that really left a bad taste in our mouths. £36.00 for what should have cost a tenner.
I had the (find the fish) Fish Cakes, which were obviously home-made but not in a good way. I would have preferred the frozen ASDA version. 98% potato and salt. My partners meal was chicken in a white wine sauce with rice. Imagine a non-descript plate of pure white, half of it a gelatinous sauce complete with skin and plain rice.
My new potatoes would have been new 4 months ago.
Everything covered in dried parsley, at the height of summer some fresh herbs would have been not much of a stretch. AVOID AT ALL COSTS....have a packet of crisps and save your appetite for somewhere else.

Bit of a sparsely decorated pub, a bit like drinking in someone's front room! Having said that, there was a huge welcoming fire on a cold Sunday afternoon and the staff made us feel well at home. Five real ales on, I tried the Tonbridge & the Larkins, both in good condition. Food was excellent and came in huge portions, the Sunday roast defeated most people. A most enjoyable visit.

Thought Id give it one last chance.
Realised it has had too many last chances already

Awful, simply awful. Should be closed down , filthy disgrace to all those who try to run proper establishments.

After last coming to this pub back in January after a couple of years away it was great. Now after another return to the area what a shame the pub has gone back in time to the old days of D & J it now looks dirty the food if any very poor. Well after looking back at previous reports by the LOCALS seems than now have what they wanted their own personal drinking club where no outsiders will want to come too eat or drink, well they now have it and they are welcome to it, will not be returning for sometime or NEVER
