Very disappointed with the restaurant. We stayed at the hotel and maybe our expectations were too high but the variety is not very big and the meal was poor. I had carbonara which was not as expected (pictured) and my boyfriend had chicken wrapped in...More

Lovely out the way scene. My room was inside the barn was most spectacular to stay. Staff all very friendly and welcoming. The food was an upperclass menu and was divine. Pricey but worth the getaway for a weekend.

We dined at Elvey Farm - the food was pleasant, not great but the service was insultingly bad. Initially things were slow but for the second half of our meal we were ignored completely. The waiter stood resolutely with his back to the dining room...More

Went for a meal with friends. The restaurant/hotel has recently been taken over by an Italian family so thought we would try dining there. It is out in the sticks but once you find it it is in a lovely setting. They are also offering...More

What a delight. Friendly Italian family restaurant tucked away up a narrow lane in the Weald. Slightly pricey, but very attentive service and tasty, well-presented food.

I was a little apprehensive as we have had many good meals here before but there have been so many changes and we have not been for some while. We had a set (£25) 3 course Christmas menu and we were a party of 12....More

A little piece of Italy nestled comfortably in the English countryside. Stramacchio Italiano is a unique restaurant combining home-made Italian food with the charm of our historic Kentish farmstead. Why not enjoy an afternoon tea on the sun terrace Thursday - Sunday from 3pm. A great excuse to let the kids explore the open fields, a catch up with friends or to celebrate an upcoming occasion with family. Evening meals available Tuesday-Sunday from 6.30pm. Sit inside Casa Stramacchio or out on the front terrace enjoying the sunset. We can get very busy and we always advise booking to avoid disappointment.
