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.

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 .

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.

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.
