First time eating here... food was lovely.. service was a little slow due to a large table dining at the same time.. but the waiting team apologised often and informed us of what was happening.. very friendly team.. we were booked on to a tour and was in no rush so really wasn’t a problem. Food was amazing.. too full for pudding but had to squeeze it in! Yum!!! We will be back!

We had a gorgeous meal - starters, mains and desserts - and some lovely wine, in a delightful setting with top service. I maintain that this is the best place to have a celebratory meal this side of Tunbridge Wells. Well done and thanks.

Unfortunately what had been planned to be a special day out celebrating 2 birthdays and a retirement was blighted by a very noisy table, wbo had young children disrupting the dining experience with ipads, music, running around. It was generally not conducive to an enjoyable relaxed meal. When we moved to the veranda the children then came out and ran around and threw stones from the plants around. A shame because the food was lovely.

Absolutely excellent meal once again, using the best of local ingredients. Loved the new Pinot Noir gin to add to the excellent wine. If you haven’t been yet you need to go.

From three ladies who don't do regular lunches out and about - we had a really enjoyable relaxing lunch. Food was delicious - so tasty and beautifully presented. Service was attentive and friendly - not rushed. And we each enjoyed a glass of Three Graces sparkling wine whilst sitting on the terrace enjoying the sunshine. Thank you.

We had the set lunch menu and it was such great quality and value for money. Honestly some of the best food we've had eating out recently. The team were welcoming and attentive, and the meal was well paced. We'd love to go back again soon.

Thank you for a wonderful lunch. We all loved our choices and would definitely recommend everything we had! Service was great, friendly and unobtrusive. It was a perfect follow on to the wine tour and tasting. We’ll be back!

Food was absolutely amazing today. Always really good but exceptional cooking. Rye bay scallops were cooked perfectly. Guinea fowl main was delicious with succulent meat. Lamb rump brilliantly accompanied with an intense jus. Desserts lovely as well. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Kate, the manager always gives a warm welcome. Really love coming here.

An excellent meal more akin to a Michelin restaurant with portion sizes to match. We left feeling we had eaten a fantastic meal without being overly full. The staff were lovely, friendly and well trained. The surroundings modern but comfortable. Thank you for making this a wonderful evening.

Starter great, fish soup plus poached egg. Main course lamb so so, I should have gone for something else. Menu needs two more main dish choices.
