Warm fire places, beams to knock your head on, good beer and food and pleasant staff when I went there. The dining room at the back was less characterful.

The Three Chimneys was our third pub of our Sunday visit to Kent. The village is the home of Biddenden cider and sure enough they had a couple of casks of real cider. In addition, there were 3 ales dispensed on gravity - Harveys Sussex Best Bitter, Adnams Bitter and another ale called Driftwood (not sure of the brewery unless it was actually something from the Driftwood brewery in Cornwall). Our visit was soured by the poor service. Locals were congregated in the central part of the bar, meaning that it was very difficult to get the attention of the barmaids from behind the pub's beams. They were too busy chatting with the locals. When finally served, the barmaid got the order wrong. Nevertheless, this pub has a nice feel. The bar area itself is very traditional. There is a small patio to the side.

After having read the reviews about this pub I thought I would give it a try, but unfortunately since the last review was posted in February it's quite clear that the owners have gone bankrupt.
The first clue that something was wrong was when I ordered a coke. It was poured from a tap as usual, however rather than the usual Coca Cola it was actually Panda Pops or some other cheap replacement.

We then ordered food off the chalkboard (because they didn't have a menu), and was told that we couldn't sit outside because we didn't order a Ploughman's lunch. We sat near the fireplace which clearly hasn't been used - or cleaned - for a good number of years. I'm not sure where all the furniture had gone - it was unclear whether the owners had opted for medieval decor or they had sold everything to pay off some debts, but the part of the pub we sat in was completely empty apart from a dartboard and three very old tables that were all in a state of disrepair.

There was no music at all - instead we had no choice but to listen to a very loud American woman who LOVED the sound of her own voice.

My food was not too bad - although it was nothing special and I've had better in many other pubs nearby. My friend had nothing more than tinned fish mixed with a handful of pre-packed salad. The price of everything was about average, but for an average price I can go to a pub with better food, better drink, a better atmosphere and no gobby Americans - so I definitely won't be wasting any more time or money here.

If the words "dining pub" tend to make you recoil slightly and wistfully long for the days when pickled eggs were the only temptation on offer, then arrest your fears, as soon as you enter this place there is a wonderful warm timeless atmosphere. Spend more than a couple of pints here and you will cheerfully let slip which decade you are in. They obviously do a great deal of dining business as the size of the car park and the conservatory out back attest, but this is still a pub you can happily roll up to for a pint without feeling you are getting in the way. It is perhaps not a "local" and didn't appear to have any chatty locals spraffing away at the bar as one might like when I was there. This is a pub that does food. Oh and the food is very nice, it is tad expensive, but you won't mind paying, that's how nice it is.

I have not been here for years. Have just been told they would not let a coach load of CAMRA members in for a drink (most of them over 50, so they could hardly be lager louts).

I would suggest that people boycott this pub if that is their attitude.
