Never had a bad lunch or dinner here, menu is appealing, staff attentive but not gushing. Nice ambience and perfectly located.

We were greeted when we came in. They found us a table really quick despite that it was very busy.
We were happy that we did not wait too long for our food.
The atmosphere was nice and festive as we were there during the Christmas period. A lot of people in groups rather than a romantic dinner for 2.
I had plaice and it was nice but could have been improved.
The baked Camembert for starters was my favourite!

The last time i visited here, i wrote about plans to expand, and hoped that standards would be maintained. I recently revisited and delighted to say that quality not only maintained but improved.
Good selection here of wine, gins and cheese, but great just for a 'drop in'. .
Culinary delight, which raises the status of Maidstone, which is increasingly getting better at offering good food spots, but for me this stands out as amongst the best. Might even deserve a national award !
Well done !!!!

We arrived unannounced and were seated straight away. Very spacious with families, couples and groups. We were a group of 5, some had the omelettes which were excellent and cooked to order. I had the sea bass salad, excellent value and presentation. My sister had the cheese board and said the cheeses were excellent and very French.

The ambience was perfect. No loud music or rushing about.

The desserts were excellent, something for all tastes and made in house.

All in all a very pleasant experience. We will certainly be visiting again.

We give it maximum stars.
