About Hooden Smokehouse & Cellar
A traditional family run 17th Century English pub, with log burners, beams, serving an american smokehouse menu. Including our own recipe 16 hour brisket and burnt ends, 14 hour pulled pork and soft and juicy ribs, and much much more. We have an extensive garden that can cater for well over a hundred people, on nice days we will have the BBQ and wood burning pizza oven fired up and ready to serve delicious fresh pizza and BBQ meats. All this washed down with a great selection of fine wines, real ales and a good selection of other draught beers.
Nice food and decor but loud swearing by a group at the bar was off putting as we had kids. Service was ok but slow.
Loved it all.
Lovely little pub/restaurant- gorgeous interior and lovely big garden. Good music and nice atmosphere. Service was a little slow but staff were very friendly. Food was average- I felt there wasn’t enough meat in the brisket chilli to warrant the price. Pudding (choc brownie) was excellent
We loved it!
Amazing Food Amazing & Friendly Staff New Favourite
Despite being very busy for a Tuesday night the staff coped brilliantly and the food was delicious.
Prompt and friendly service.
It's always a good night at the Hooden. Highly recommended.
Service quick and friendly. Drinks were perfect but food was just ok. Two people on our table orderd beef and one arrived dry and without sauce. They couldent finish it. The jackfruit dish is far too sweet. The sauce is like treacle and lacking salad or veg. The Mac and cheese balls were a hit and fajitas went down well too.
Tasty food at a very reasonable price. Great service. A bit noisy, but a great place to visit.
Various items from the menu were not available, which was disappointing.
Great food, fab service, will be back soon 😊
Excellent meal. A little disappointed that there was no rice available for the chilli. Food overall was amazing
Brilliant pub we travel from Maidstone to meet friends. It's becoming regular! We can't wait for the beer festival. Lovely staff, friendly locals. Thank you.
Staff were very friendly, place was managed well, lots of seating outside, good value for money will definitely be back ! Only downside is parking, car park is tiny.
Great pub, food was good. Fab service especially from Harriet, she was very attentive.
Always lovely staff and amazing food. One of my new favourite restaurants. Fajitas are bomb.
Fantastic food and service! Highly recommended
Lovely pub with great food. Only thing that would make the evening experience better would be more comfortable chairs in restaurant area plus comfy bar area. Only one table with nice comfortable seats.
Fantastic lunch, attentive friendly staff. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends. Thanks.
My new favourite place to eat 😁
Friendly atmosphere, lovely food and great service.
The lady who greeted us was inappropriately dressed wearing a rather short skirt. She was extremely rude, wanted to squeeze 5 of us on a 4 seater table that hadn't even been reserved. This inconvenienced us and would have inconvenienced other diners around us. There were plenty of other tables but she refused this option. Needless to say we didn't sit down for our meal and left. I have been many times to your establishment but will never visit again.
Food was lovely but service was terrible. Waiters nice enough but so overstretched. Waited 25 between sitting down and being offered a drink.
Lovely meal for Mother’s day and staff were superb and on the ball the whole time. Would recommend to anyone.
