Probably the best food in East Kent in a 'unique' atmosphere. Grab a booking if you can.

Our second visit and was just as good as the first. Nothing could be faulted - apart perhaps my fondness for the grape - leading to a little bit of a hangover the next morning! I enjoy having my tastes challenged and eating thing I wouldn't normally order. Every plate went back thoroughly clean. Keep up the great work, and I just hope you still enjoy what you do as much as we enjoyed the results! D&S

Delicious meal which was definitely complimented by the wine pairings. I really enjoyed the smokey red which had a whisky barrel type flavour and a fizz on the tongue. There were things on the menu that I typically wouldn't order but I really enjoyed them. I have never tasted such an amazing mushroom dish. Thank you!

The food is perfection.The recent Michelin star is entirely justified. Quirky restaurant and set menu format might not suit everyone but clearly a winning formula Cannot recommend highly enough.
