A pleasant restaurant, part of the Lambert Hotel. Food was enjoyable with good portion sizes and reasonable prices. Service was not a problem either, despite some less than compliementary earlier reviews.

We ate at the Kite Restaurant whilt staying in the hotel and enjoyed a marvelous meal. There was ample choice on the menu and the portions were extremely generous. Although it was a Monday evening, the restaurant had several diners.

Description
Kite Restaurant & Bar located at The Lambert Hotel provides a relaxed and informal dining option using fresh seasonal produce. There is a daily specials menu, Surf or Turf Friday, alongside our extensive A la Carte menu. The A La Carte provides all of the old favorites plus some modern British dishes. There are also Sharing Platters, Ploughmans, and lighter lunch options. Please note some of our dishes are served on wooden boards. Our regulars like it. On Sundays we run a reduced menu made up of our best selling items from the A La Carte Menu with the addition of traditional roasts. Our food has been awarded for an AA Rosette 2015.
