Disappointing - standards have slipped under new owners. Understandablely new management would want to put their stamp on The Marquis, but it is not the same dinning experience. The staff were slow to acknowledge us in reception and equally slow to take our coats, could...More

Intimate with lovely staff. Small portions but lovely food. Not cheap but not too expensive either. The decor was good and plenty of time to look at the menu and decide what you wanted to choose

Not a good choice on the menu, son and daughter in law had the lamb, they both struggled to cut it, you can do good “posh food” better than that, they are trying to be something they are not, think the new Marco Pierre white...More

Had lunch here with my partner and some family. The food was lovely and bigger portions than expected. Great service and lovely views of Alkham. Highly recommended and will definitely visit again. Something completely different.

We hope you're feeling hungry... Look forward to robust, fresh flavors served with imagination and flair in east Kent's newest contemporary restaurant. Our Head Chef presides over heavenly menus that change regularly and use locally caught fish and locally sourced produce. The wine, beer and drinks list is also top notch. Old school... New World... Kent wines from Kent vineyards... Local real ales... Great taste is everything at the Marquis.
