Best restaurant I’ve been to, recommended by a friend and would come back again. The chef was superb, the service from the waitress was great. Value for the quality of food again was great. Just wish the radio was more in keep with the surrounding restaurant. Top notch.

The food and service we had on Friday was fantastic! Although dinner was yummy, the dessert sharing plate was amazing and I would come back for that alone!

Dear Mr Pooke, Thank you for dining with us yesterday lunch time. We are glad you enjoyed your lunch with us. We are sorry that you do not like food served on slates. The chefs only serve the scotch egg on the slate as it enhances the colours of all the items on the plate compared to a plain white plate. Please if you do come to dine with us again, just mention to the waitress to have your scotch egg on a normal plate and the kitchen would be happy to oblige. Best regards, The Empire Room

Very good quality of cooking and good food. Depsite the waiting staff being under the cosh they still looked after us attentively. Very atmospheric room kitted out in true Kentish style. The wine list was weak with very little to choose from to complement the menu. Hopefully this will be worked on. I've eaten here twice and enjoyed the meal on both occasions. Great stuff
