“Little Gem”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Stayed here for one night for my birthday and really enjoyed it. Food in the restaurant was good with generous portions and a simple menu which had reasonable choice and straightforward pricing of £29.95 for three courses - no working out who's had what, if you are splitting the bill in a party of people. The room and the breakfast were my highlights though. We had room no 1 which was easily 4 star hotel quality. Huge comfy bed, beautifully decorated, warm and cosy and had a contemporary large shower room. Yes, there are very small parts of the bathroom door that are see-through but easily fixed with a towel hung on the door. Breakfast was brilliant. No menu, just cooked to order. It was the freshest, tastiest and best cooked breakfast I've ever had in a hotel. All in all, a great little getaway place.

I went to this restaurant for a 70th birthday and there were 13 of us. There were 2 other parties in the restaurant and it was full, despite this, I have nothi but praise.

As you walk in you are given a warm welcome, and it gets better from there.


The menu, although not as big as other restaurants, still has plenty of choice. I had confit of duck for starters - perfectly cooked and balanced beautifully with the pickled veg, and venison with celaric puree for a main. I can't comment on the desert as I was to full to eat one, but the others in my party tucked in.

We all had various dishes, including steak, pork and sea bass and not one even had a minor complaint or comment. All totally positive.

To sum up:

A lovely welcome
Good choice of menu
Very well cooked
Generous portion sizes
Very good service

To be recommended highly

Stayed for one night whilst visiting friends. Room was spotless, bed was very comfy. Breakfast (full veggie) was delicious.
would definitely stay again if in the area and will try the restaurant soon.

From the moment I was greeted by the host Andrew , on my overnight business stay, I was totally impressed .. This guy has amazing customer service qualities ..if he's not the owner , then he's an amazing ambassador for the establishment .. The room was perfect .. If I had a tiny criticism I'd say it was a tad too warm, and in Summer may be a little issue, but overall , for the full package , room cleanliness , comfort, service .. This place is totally amazing l
We ate in the restaurant for dinner ..it was a £30 set menu for three courses,,and fabulous food ..my steak was top quality ..they obviously care about every aspect of the customer experience .
It's 5 mins from our office and I didn't know it was there ..I stay at the Selsdon Park usually on my monthly visit , but this night there was a conference and they were full, the Bakery we found on the Internet ..and I'm so glad we did ,. In future I'll only stay at Selsdon when the Bakery is full ! Well done to the whole team for impressing a nonchalantly jaded traveller with such great service.

Situated in the village of Tatsfield,nearly 700ft up on the North Downs.Five bedrooms overa restaurant. The rooms have recently been refurbished to a high standard. A large comfortable double bed.very nice large shower.Flat screen TV.Free Wifi. Building is a narrow triangle.Ask for room 1, which is at narrow end of building, with windows on both sides.No noise heard from restaurant underneath, and double glazing effectively hides the little traffic noise.Rooms are spotless.Good choice of breakfast. Very convenient having a restaurant serving a nicely cooked meal, situated at the bottom of the stairs. Not far from Westerham. Lots to see locally.

Room Tip: Room 1 has windows on two sides.

Stumbled upon this accidentally and very glad i did, amazing place. Rooms = AMAZING, food = AMAZING, service = AMAZING, a real little hideaway gem in a sleepy village. The breakfast is one of the best I've ever had.
If your after a romantic stopover or a getaway then the comfort, location and the building are all perfect. Cant wait to go back

This restaurant with rooms provides 5 fabulously furnished & spotless ensuite rooms with everything you would require for a very comfortable stay. Newly furbished to an extremely high standard with a massive flat screen tv. (The largest we have ever seen in a bed & breakfast).
The staff are very friendly & helpful, providing jugs of fresh milk for our tea supplies in the room.
One night we ate in the restaurant which proved to be fabulous. For a Wednesday evening it was very busy and the menu varied. Smoked haddock with a welsh rarebit top was wonderful and the further 2 courses did not disappoint. Another evening we ate in the bar & had home made bacon & cheese burgers which were the best I have ever had!
Re an earlier review & problems with the small glass panels in the bathroom door, I would suggest this could easily be remedied by placing a towel on the door hook.
