I booked for my partner's birthday. His daughter recently passed away and Tom Sargeant was her favourite chef but she was too ill to get here before her passing. We arrived early checked in and had a couple of drinks upstairs. We came down on time to be told by the waitress she had to get the manager which was... More

Very romantic at night. The food has always been wonderful and I have been numerous times. I cannot fault it for a place to... More

As there are only four rooms in this hotel you could say that its small but we found it to be perfectly formed. We were in the Kittens room, which is a family room. Beautifully decorated, with two bedrooms. The main room was wonderful, with a superb bed, lovely linen and great pillows. I'm a pregnant lady and I was... More

To all those that read reviews before they go - please do not be put off by the bad reviews. Before I arrived at the restaurant I was reading reviews on how bad the service is. I can say this just wasn't the case when we dined. The service was beyond fantastic! We arrived a little early for our dinner... More

The food was excellent. The service was poor and haphazard. Each item seems reasonably priced but add in the needed veg to the main and it becomes more expensive than good London restaurants. Wine is on the more expensive end. Restaurant is also noisy, bad accoustics. We considered it poor value. We won't be going back.

Booked into the rock salt rooms and also the restaurant and would like to say we was very happy with both, the room was snug with a lovely view of the harbour. We had afternoon cocktails upstairs at the rock-salt And then a beautiful meal downstairs, can't wait to return.

Location is fabulous, nice wine - food good however if i was going to criticise then more extensive menu required! ( could lose items such as rabbit pie and replace with 'edible' dishes such as steak pie) :-) Best restaurant in Kent!

Thank Iain M
