Excelled on all criteria on a busy Sunday lunchtime. Created a great environment to catch up with some good friends.

Initially we were sat by the kitchen, which was hot, busy, and noisy, it wasn't a great spot for us so we asked to be moved. The service was wonderful once we were seated at our table - our waitress was personable and very lovely, she made the experience. Our food was good, but not as good as it is priced up to be, but it was presented beautifully. The decor is lovely and the atmosphere on the window side of the dining room is far better than on the kitchen side, although the room acoustics aren't great. We had hoped to sit by the fire after our meal, but the sofas were taken, so we had a drink in the bar after supper which was nice. We would return.

We always enjoy our visits to the Kentish Hare - the staff are invariably very friendly and helpful, even when we have small grandchildren in tow!

We had a lovely dinning experience from start to finish. Staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful. Food was tasty and generously proportioned. Excellent value for money. The only slight minus point was that the room was very noisy making it hard to carry on a conversation.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the Kentish Hare and will return - we eat out regularly and it was a tad expensive but you do get what you pay for and the food was excellent as was the service

Despite being clearly busy in a mid Sunday service rush, all the staff were attentive without being overbearing, had good knowledge of the menu when asked about catering for dietary requirements and were well in control of a busy restaurant. Food was superb and will definitely be back soon

Every time me and my partner go to the Kentish hare, the food is always better than the last time we went. The staff are friendly and helpful and we would definitely go again.

Spend some time on the wine list. Provide a wine list that matches the brilliant food. The wine list is a little basic and has no top end offerings that match some of the dishes. However, the amount of wines offered by the glass is brilliant considering the size of the list. Something a bit more exciting and left field to match the kitchens ambition!
