Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very lovely and welcoming restaurant! It is not a huge place so you feel well looked after, not in a sea of other people like in some places. You can heat yourself speak and the atmosphere is very nice. The food was fantastic! Highly recommend...visiting, we are looking forward to going back and trying other options! We were recommended and now we will pass on the recommendations because it really was lovely food.More

Were staying nearby for a weekend for my partners birthday and came here for dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful and the staff were very friendly. The restaurant is spacious and seems popular to families as well as couples. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a lovely meal here while meeting old friends nearby. We had the burgers, lamb, fish and chips (substituted the chips for mash), prawns and scotch eggs/soup to start. The burgers were absolutely perfect, tasty, flavourful and well garnished, and reports from our dinner...partners was that the fish was the best they'd had on their visit (don't live in UK). The staff were wonderful. Polite, attentive, friendly, and accommodating, - opening a window for us as it got quite warm. Everything was perfect and It was a lovely experience. I wish we were local to go back! Thank you for a lovely evening :)More

Paul, Julie and their team are impeccable. And that's before trying the food! Make sure you put on your comfy trousers because you won't be able to avoid having three courses once you taste their menu. The steak is my favourite plate but everything is...delicious. Their milkshakes are an absolute must and their scotch egg is the best thing since sliced bread! Plentiful good drink options. There's roadside parking just outside and worth the short journey from Canterbury if you're visiting the city.More

Had another wonderful meal at The Dairy this weekend. I had the steak as did my husband, and this is one of the only places we can choose the steak and know it will always be good. You do not get, nor do you need...a steak knife, the meat is so tender, an ordinary knife cuts through it like butter. The flavour is beautiful and I have medium rare and it is always perfectly cooked, just pink in the middle. The service from Julie the owner, and the other ladies is brilliant. We can't wait to go back again soon.More

On a four night break in a nearby village, we visited The Dairy on our 2nd night. We enjoyed it so much, we were back two nights later. The food was excellent, the restaurant is stylish and laid back, and the whole team were so...welcoming and accommodating. We will definitely be back on our next visit to the area.More

All hot courses came out steaming! front of house ran by his wife and the waiting staff made you feel very welcome and felt like you are part of a family, definitely will be returning!!More

Wow From the moment we stepped in, we had a wonderful experience. It had been beautifully decorated with plenty of nods to the building's previous use as a dairy. The service was brilliant - friendly and attentive without being pushy. The burgers are top notch....Our one regret is that we didn't have room for the delicious looking puddings - we will have to come back and try them next time.More
