Very restful and exceptionally good service with out being in your face. Food and ambiance was excellent . Surroundings were exquisite. As I am a vegetarian I find it slightly irritating that in this day and age that the vegetarian option menu isn't given as a matter of course....I had to ask and then wait ten minutes for the vegetarian...

We have visited Read's restaurant for evening dinner at least 4 times with every visit being exceptionally good. Yesterday's visit was no different. We visited as a group of six adults of varying age and tastes. On arrival we were greeted and ushered through to the bar where we were served aperitifs. We always order the 7 course taster menu...

The booking for a one night stay was simple and easy, made direct with the hotel over the telephone and ensured we got the room we wanted. A suggestion is you may well need to book well in advance to get the room of your choice. The hotel is easy to find being on the A2 (Canterbury Road) and they...

We have had both lunch and dinner on many occasions and we also stay in one of the extremely comfortable rooms when we are there for dinner. Macknade Manor, which is what the property is called, is a beautiful Georgian Manor House, set in mature grounds, and tastefully furnished and appointed. There is a lovely restful atmosphere in which to...

We visited Reads for a birthday meal and opted to have the tasting menu. The whole experience is a taste of luxury, beginning in the lounge where you can enjoy a drink and aperitif whilst you peruse the menu before being lead into the dining room. The tasting menu comprised 9 dishes including appetizers, a main course, cheese board and...

Reeds suggests top quality as soon as you enter the drive and it does not disappoint. An aperitif in the lounge before an amazing choice of fine food cooked buy the great chefs in the kitchen. The service was very very good too. One of the finest restaurants you could visit and don't discount how popular yet exclusive this is....

We stayed here for 3 nights with friends. Super rooms. Great base for visiting Canterbury and N Kent coast. Excellent breakfasts. We ate in the restaurant each night. Lovely food and good service. Not cheapest place we have ever stayed but good value for money.

Had a terrific taster menu meal. Hearty fresh food, wonderful selection, although the chicken liver was a bit strong for me! Fantastic cheese board too. Room was fine with huge bathroom and nice view over patio area. I was left a bit annoyed next morning at breakfast, we sat down and I was asked if I wanted a cooked breakfast...

I can only start by saying I adore this place. Having returned from another visit I can only say that It never fails to exceed the memory of the first (or subsequent) visit. The rooms are amazing and decadent, and the food is stunning. We started with an aperitif on the terrace Moved into the restaurant for the taster menu...

We decided on a trip to Kent and a visit to Oare Marsh for our anniversary and to have lunch at Reads something we have been meaning to do for some time.
