An excellent afternoon thanks. Good food and service, particularly given there were 17 of us! Staff very helpful and friendly. We had a great time.

Lovely afternoon in the garden with nice food. Shame about the small playground, which had a number of broken pieces of equipment.

The starters and deserts are over priced. Camonbert to share was tiny, enough for 1 person but £8.95 for a small cheese and 4 slices of bread. Halumi fries were £6 and you only receive 4. £7.95 for a small piece and chocolate cake and single scoop of ice-cream is too much, although nice

I called to see if I could add another person to our table and was able. I was told by a emend if staff due to busyness over the weekend they had a limited menu. When we arrived the menu had got even more limited so in the end we didn’t eat as there wasn’t much left in the menu. We were very disappointed.

Shame the person in charge of stock take was clearly away on holiday. It would have been easier for the waitress to let us know what was still available rather than the long list of foods that weren’t available. No salad - really!!! Was it considered too difficult to visit either the Co-op or Tesco Metro (both within 1 mile) to purchase such items. A Smokehouse without burgers - laughable.

Good outside space for families. Inside seating not good for disabled visitors due to no space around tables. Also should have marked spaces in car park for Blue Badge holders. Need to be more disabled friendly.

I was happy with my meal but the others all complained and didn’t enjoyed their meals. I mainly chose your restaurant for the veggie but my sister was not impressed. I was told the fish was dry from another member. They all hated the chips I had sweet potato which was great as I was my chicken.

Thanks for catering for such a large group. Your place is a hidden gem and we will definitely be back next time we are in Kent. The food was amazing and the chips were the best I have ever had. Perfect beer garden for kids with so much space and a playground for little ones and another for the older children. We all had great time thanks again 👍

We booked a garden party to celebrate the 1st communion of our daughter. A section of the garden was reserved for us. The food was wonderful, there was a fantastic relaxed atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We took off one star for service as the communication about the party during the planning stage wasn't great, we had to chase the staff to answer our emails or phone calls. However, on the day, everything was more than perfect and everything we had asked for was there, they had even added some flowers on the table as a little extra. So thank you and we would certainly recommend this place to everyone.

Food was definitely average, no where near as good as it used to be - barely any chicken in the fajitas, boiled rice instead of the nice spicy rice used to have. Service was slow and sloppy - order came out wrong, almost finished my meal before my drink eventually got to me. Pub was practically empty (probably something to do with the average food and poor service!) Very overpriced for what you got.

Arrived at 19:30 and we did not start eating until 21:30, food arrived burnt, dry and lacking in presentation, and was extremely over priced. It was very hard to get staffs attention throughout the night even though the restaurant was half empty. A complaint was made regarding burnt food, and a staff member proceeded to pick the food up off the plate and walk away with the food inbetween their fingers, rather than taking the plate away, we couldn't believe our eyes. It felt like staff had almost given up. Despite this, atmosphere was lovely, and well presented.
