About Chilston Park Hotel

While the setting of Culpeper’s Restaurant in Kent is traditional – intricately designed with a Wedgwood blue colour scheme – the fine dining is all about enjoyment. Much of our food is sourced locally from coast and farm to ensure the purest flavour. Fine dining in Kent at its best.

Our menu is classic English with a 21st Century twist. Expect fresh, seasonal ingredients and an enticing range of regional dishes. While the setting of the restaurant is traditional, Culpeper’s is in the original dining room of the house, dining is all about easy-going enjoyment. Dishes change regularly to incorporate the best local ingredients with current favourites such as sirloin of beef and dover sole. To accompany your meal, delve into the wine list – our experienced team will be happy to guide you through our selection, including our rare whiskies and brandies.

Food was excellent but service was poor. Had to wait to be shown to table as no one was on hand and then had to get up and look for someone to provide more jam as there was no one in attendance.

The atmosphere and setting were lovely. The food was fantastic. My only negative was we asked for a top up of tea and it was extremely weak almost like dishwater but didn’t ruin the whole experience.

Welcome,service and ambiance were superb. Alas the afternoon tea wasn't as good as previous visits. The savoury afternoon tea was disappointing with the cheese and chive scones incredibly salty making them almost inedible.

Lovely place to visit, was nice to have sandwiches in afternoon tea that were not dry, scones were delicious and the sweet treats were mostly nice apart from the red velvet cake which was too dry and just felt like sand in your mouth as it fell apart so I couldn’t eat it! We were super full after as there was a generous amount of food so definitely good value for money, I’ve been to places that charge a similar amount and you don’t get as much food so that was really good.

I booked afternoon tea and we were seated in the dining room. On commenting to the waiter that I had believed my booking was for the Marble Lounge, he very kindly moved us there. The staff was pleasant and helpful and contributed greatly to a most pleasant afternoon.

My guest and I enjoyed our Champagne afternoon tea which compared favourably in content and service with the one that we had earlier in the year at the Ritz Hotel, although of course it was impossible to match the ambience!

The service we received was superb attentive without intrusion We were there for my wife’s 70th birthday afternoon tea. We have stayed in 5 or 6 of your hotels over the years and celebrated my daughters wedding and our 50th wedding anniversary at Brands Hatch Place and always received great attentive service Keep up the good work Jeff Pinnock

Staff were very attentive and polite. Reason for 4 and not5 stars for atmosphere was due to the room being very quiet.

We had the champagne afternoon tea on a special promotion, half price for two people. Had I have paid full price I don’t think I would have been terribly happy. The sandwiches were average and the scones were good, but we found the patisseries to be bland and rather tasteless, although they did look pretty. We ended up leaving most of them. A little disappointing.
