First meal out since February 2020: what a great choice we made in booking at the Granville The meal was superb: we had the slow cooked pork and the grilled seabass for mains and the most divine lemongrass panacotta with coconut sorbet and lime shortbread for dessert. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. It all felt very safe. Highly recommended. We will definitely return.

Unfortunately I have nothing good to say about the food or the wine. A shared platter of vegetables consisting of 4 tiny parsnips, finger bowl size peas and same form of a leak chessy dish. Yorkshire puddings hard as rock and a the puréed carrots were like slop. The wine was like vinegar and was awful.

First time at the Granville as we were on holiday near Canterbury. Due to current restrictions dining was outside and they have plenty of space. It was a bit chilly but worth it. Plenty of choices for Sunday lunch such as roasts, veggie curry, burger etc. Enough dessert choices such as cheesecake. Loved the food and plenty of it, definitely recommended.

Outside dining experience was very good, the only thing we would comment about is that the Nibbles starter only has 1 roll per dish and we ordered 2 for 3 people and there wasn't enough to go round. Apart from that food was good ;)

Really enjoyed our meal! First time we have visited and we will be back for sure!! My only critic was that I feel the garden area didn’t do the food and service justice. I feel the garden could of done with some maintenance prior to opening as things like overgrown dead plants and dead patches of grass made it feel slightly worn down, and also that all the tables could of done with a parasol. However this takes nothing away from the superb food, we had the mezze, a burger and fish and chips! And the wine choice was lovely.

We were absolutely thrilled that The Granville was recommended to us at our accommodation. Can't say enough brilliant things about the service and the quality of the food. I wish we lived closer than a 5+ hour drive so we could visit more often!

Atmosphere usually great but seated outdoors a little chilly. Tim, Nichola and Ginny were excellent hosts, remembering our drinks preferences and having them ready on arrival! Service excellent, making guests feel part of 'the family'. Still our favourite venue after months of lockdown.
