Porcupine Pantry had a lovely warm atmosphere with Christmas decorations and art exhibition but the soup we ordered was terrible. Served in a small dish, it was watery, without flavour and very overpriced.

Coffee and hotchocolate was self service and very poor product for over £2 per cup. Could be... More

We took our grandchildren to Penhurst Place last week and I was blown away. It was wonderful. There was a great outdoor playground, the gardens are just beautiful, we did a marked Woodland Trail which we all found very interesting. There is a delightful Toy Museum which had us all interested and then we ate in the restaurant. The who,e... More

The gardens are beautiful. I visisted in October so I can only imagine what they look like in the summer. The house is beautiful. Not as many rooms to visit on the tour as I thought, was a quick tour but it is beautiful. Each room has an information card you can read. Toy museum small but interesting. Easy to... More

Was visiting the area for a family event and my son and I were taken here this morning. A truly beautiful place. The gardens are stunning and the castle magnificent. Was really in awe of it. So incredibly well preserved and amazing to think the same family has lived in it for nearly 500 years. The great dining hall dates... More

A friend and I visited this place in the fall and the gardens were beautiful! I can only imagine what they must look like in the spring. They seem to be immaculately taken care of and even had some tropical plants, which I was surprised to see growing in England! We had a sandwich (Panini) at the little restaurant just... More

We held our wedding reception at penshurst place in September and it was perfect, the Barons Hall is stunning and our guests were blown away. The gardens were beautiful and I can't wait for the photos to come through. Having visited a few times in the lead up to the big day we found different bits of the gardens every... More

Locally the gardens are renowned for its variety of flowers and the maize maze. What we found was a poorly maintained garden. The grass was dry. Could have done with some TLC. Didn't visit the house, so can't comment. We had a picnic and left. They hold wedding events but I'd ask for my money back if This was the... More

Visited the gardens on 25 September 2014. The gardens are very limited and at this time of year looked exhausted. The roses were in poor condition, the box hedges were not in good condition, the grass in the formal gardens needed cutting and was full of weeds. Several areas of the garden are ' awaiting renewal'. Hardly any plants are... More
