This is a very new restaurant, but the run in must have been exceedingly well managed. Food is of the highest quality and the atmosphere quite special. Service is at a pace that you can enjoy some conversation and the staff are very friendly and attentive.

My husband and I visited the Kitty Fisher for dinner and were delighted.
This small, pretty restaurant is in the picturesque Kentish village of Benenden.
The service was friendly and informal and the food is focussed on seafood although both of us ended up having the tornedos which was cooked to perfection and servied with a pepper sauce.
We finished off with an interesting and tasty selection of cheese.
We will definately be back.

A group of 4 of us booked for a Friday supper. Knowing the excellent standards that Lucy and Mark provide, we knew we would have a delightful time. The service was absolutely brilliant. We were not rushed, the atmosphere was completely chilled and we had a real giggle with the staff too. The appetiser ( the same soup in a teacup) mentioned earlier was lovely and followed by superb starters. The main courses were all superb, the sea bass cooked perfectly, the fish platter was incredible and the steak also very good. The restaurant is a bit pricey for 'a village restaurant' but the quality and ambiance make for a lovely evening. If you love fish this place is a must visit.
Well done to all! Forgot to add the cheeseboard is fab too!

Having previously visited both their sister pubs, in the village (The Bull) and in Hawkhurst (The Black Pig) as well as being acquainted with the previous incarnation (William IVth) we felt reasonably confident that owners Mark & Lucy would make a good job of their new venture, and we were not disappointed.
The Kitty Fisher is lovely. In the bar the décor is a blend of lovely old village pub and chic modern lines, flattered by lavish curtains and fresh cut flowers. The restaurant resembles a pretty Georgian dining room and the tables are beautifully presented.
The menu, food, wines and service are faultless. A previous review referred to service being patchy, but this has not been our experience. Lucy is delightful and efficient and a particular mention must go to the lovely Sarah, unfailingly smiley and charming. I regard it a sign of quality in a local pub when you are greeted after relatively few visits and asked if you would like your usual wine.
Yes, I would say that we have ourselves a new star in Benenden. Well done all of you.
