Service was good and the polish born waitress tried her best. The draught beer was of poor quality. The food was similar to that of a little chef but not as good! Frozen chips, steak was ok. We probably should have stayed somewhere else and then we would have eaten at a different restaurant. We ate in the conservatory part... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights and ate in the restaurant on the Saturday. The normal chef had apparently been called away and therefore a relief chef was put in place. Excellent lamb shoulder and a very good ravioli. Also a very good starter and dessrt. O.K., lacking atmosphere but could not fault the food or the service.

Plastic flowers and plastic food in a room with very little views but with staff that cared, but seemed not to have much experience.

The food was high quality but at a reasonable price. The Service was really professional and there was a good choice of hight quality food. The Menu did cater for everyone as my husband doesn't eat meat we were happy.

First time we had been to Kemp's - 7 of us went for a mothers day lunch in their carvery. Lovely location in the conservatory looking out across the garden and very good food, reasonably priced 3 course meal and good service. The carvery included a whole turkey, not just a boned and rolled joint as many other carveries use.... More

Pleasant restaurant with good menu choice. Excellent presentation & very cheerful waitress. Menu was not too large which is not a bad thing as large menus tend to convince that food is not freshly prepared & cooked. Food was hot but vegetable selection was rather limited.

Nice restaurant with very good food (despite a somewhat limited choice).The service is excellent It is located close to the hotel which makes is very convenient if you have a room there. The place has a large car park. A little bit pricey

I liked the fact that there was a limited choice of dishes available.I am always a bit suspicious when confronted by a double side menu.It can't possibly all be home cooked. Kemps food was and you could tell.It was served by friendly wait staff and the portion size was just right. My duck breast was delicious as was my chicken... More
