“Superb meal with great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We ate here with a Groupon voucher for a surprise tasting menu. It was lovely to get 3 choices of starter, main and dessert. The food was delicious and plentiful and was backed up with very attentive and professional service. We will definitely be coming back to try the full menu and would recommend as a great place to eat to anyone wanting a meal whilst in Maidstone. The views from the restaurant over the river are lovely and the restaurant felt extremely relaxing.

“Amazing food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

My husband and I first tried this restaurant in December 2013 and since then we have been going there for dinner at least once every 2 weeks. We always receive a warm welcome and the food is wonderful. The tables and chairs are laid out in such a way that there is always plenty of room to dine in comfort. The burger is a must try in my opinion. Having said that the fish dishes are lovely also. The seafood chowder is great. The drinks are reasonably priced. Once or twice we have had to wait for our order to be taken but we are always told there maybe a small wait.

Everything there is lovely. I couldn't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

“Get the lamb shank...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Lamb shank was divine.Loved it. Went for an evening meal and the service we got was great. I didn't like my starter though, can't even remember now what I had. The atmosphere was very mature when we went in. Maidstone on a saturday night is heaving with people going clubbing but the atmosphere here was different nice. Most people here where couples but my 6 year old was absolutely fine and the waiters looked after him well.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We had a lovely Sunday lunch here. The staff were very helpful and attentive. We had to wait a while but they were very apologetic and even offered to give us the puddings on the house. It was worth the wait, the food was delicious. The barman was really kind and even gave the children a lollipop as we were leaving. Next time we would book a table upstairs for the better view. Can definitely recommend.
