Beautiful setting and the food was delicious - relaxing lunch. Thank yiu.
Great food as always. A busy day with not enough staff on. All performed well but under pressure. Not as smooth as before but we will be back as it is just such a great restaurant. Thank youxas always.
Our second visit - excellent service and food - wonderful location - perfect- Thankyou
An enjoyable meal although we felt that the starter dishes were rather small. No issues with the mains and desserts though. Everything was tasty and well cooked and service was efficient.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The tasting menu & accompanying wine flight were superb & the service was professional, knowledgeable & friendly. We will definitely visit again when we are next in the area. Thank you!
Exceptional Sunday lunch
I went for a meal with my partner. The restaurant was not full so we were a little upset that we were put on a small table and then another couple put just next to us , when it would have been nicer to have had a little more privacy as we both have hearing issues. I was also put right under the speaker for the piped music . The halibut we had was fairly tasty but a very small portion . We had no alcohol but the meal came to nearly £90 ... which I felt was a bit steep .
Great place for a special occasion ! Nice atmosphere and staff.
Great setting. Had the 3 course lunch and it was excellent.
Fantastic meal and service, as always!
I had a lovely evening at this restaurant. The food was excellent. The staff were professional. I am looking forward to going back.
A slightly broader menu would be more appertizing
The food was delicious. Perfect quantity of fabulous dishes We had the set lunch menu and loved it Will definitely be going back , such a super place to visit and eat - we did the tour and wine tasting before lunch which was great too
A very relaxing place to dine with beautiful views and also a shop below to buy the wine sampled with our meal. Highly recommend, staff were attentive and polite. New favourite spot!
We had some friends over from Australia and wanted to show off our local winery restaurant (we're regulars from Benenden) and everything was spot-on. The food was excellent, the wine was fabulous and the service impeccable. All in all a charming and very enjoyable evening. Highly recommended.
Staff were attentive, without being over-bearing, polite & friendly. Restaurant décor was fabulous, and the food thoroughly enjoyable. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion, or just a nice evening out. Will definitely be back
Fabulous meal accompanied by wonderful wines. We really enjoyed our evening at The Swan and returned to walk around the vinyard and purchase wine the following morning.
A fabulous dining experience. I would recommend the lunch time menu. The wine was delicious, I brought a bottle in the shop on the way out!
I took my elderly parents, I don’t remember reading about the restaurant being upstairs, there is no lift apparently as we did ask.
The food was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed our Chapel Down wine.
Good food in a pleasant environment but being Sunday lunch service was a little slow.
2nd visit - the food was as good as our first visit. The fizz was good. The only downside this time, there were a lot of flies.
Excellent food and evening. Was very quiet so lacked atmosphere which is the only negative and didn’t not effect the experience
The food was delicious today. The duck starter was enjoyed immensely by husband. Great lamb dish as well. The manageress is delightful. Friendly and personable. She had great knowledge of the dishes. The chefs were brilliant in producing inspired dishes.
