About The Kent Tapas Company (formerly The Bench)
The Kent Tapas Company is an exciting Wine & Tapas Bar in the the historic Courtyard @ Mersham Le Hatch serving up to 48 Wines by the Glass to compliment some of the finest Tapas Kent has to offer!
Really delicious food, there’s something for everyone and it’s seriously good quality! The service was exceptional, the waiting staff are really friendly. I’ll definitely be returning and would recommend to anyone.
Loved it. Outstanding. Exceeded expectations. Hope to be back soon.
The service we received was very good and efficient, food was of excellent quality and just enough for the number of people we had, and you had the opportunity to order more if needed.
Excellent food and a good selection
Whilst the food was great, it was very over-priced for what we had. £29.95 per person was very expensive as we didn’t actually order that much food for it it be worth that much. The atmosphere was not great - I haven’t been to this restaurant for a while but it has never been as quiet as it was when we visited this week. The service was quick and the staff were friendly, however we felt as a group that the staff were trying to let get rid of us quite quickly once we’d finished eating as every 10 minutes we were asked if we wanted anything else and although we kept saying we were ok, we kept being asked - to the point where the bill was almost handed to us without us actually asking. By that point we were so sick of being asked, we paid and left quickly. Can’t say we will be returning anytime soon i’m afraid.
First visit and definitely won't be the last. Loved it.
Mark, Thank you for another delicious meal and we will no doubt be seeing you again soon. Many thanks, Kevin
Both food and drink menu somewhat limited, especially the beers. Quality very good but more choice needed
Excellent wine, atmosphere and service
Mark, Sorry to have to say but the service on Sunday was not up to the usual high standard. The new waitress's knowledge was poor, their service was also very slow. We waited for over half an hour after we had finished our mains before being asked if we had in fact 'finished' despite the new girls having walked past us several times. The desert platter was a little different than usual. Therefore, it would have been nice if we were told what the new items were instead of it just being dumped on the table?
Everything was perfect.
This was our first visit. The food was amazing and we will definitely be coming back!
Excellent every time we go.
Very good in last minute to allocate vegetarian and gluten free meal for special meals. Thanks! Great place for small party gathering!
Lovely Saturday lunch. Wasn’t very busy when we first arrived (it was chucking it down with rain just after a heatwave) so would love to visit again on a busier evening perhaps and check out the atmosphere when it’s busier. Lovely food, very generous portions and good service.
As always, food outstanding. Service was attentive and welcoming although staff were stretched on a busy evening. Compromising on staff can lead to a less than seamless experience. This is not a complaint but constructive advice. Loved the new waitress!
Lovely food and drinks. Relaxed atmosphere.
Brilliant service, Amazing food, never lets us down
Very good meal and friendly efficient service. Thoroughly recommend.
Food and service was amazing! Highly recommend :)
The offers advertised on the website were not available on the night, so rvuce was poor as we kept being disturbed a very 10 minutes asking if we were OK, more drinks, anything else, to finally have our table wiped in front of us with a dirty cloth and starting taking our salt and pepper pots, so despite it being 21:20 and the restaurant being very quiet, we got the message, paid up and left.
Lovely light lunch on a beautiful sunny day. Excellent house wine.
My favourite restaurant to eat at! The most gorgeous food
Excellent food,drink & service. No improvement necessary. Keep up the good work!!
