Four of us dined and all of us were delighted. We selected four different starters, three different main courses and four different deserts and we were all delighted. An excellent menu with beautifully presented food. Excellent selection of wines too. Gin menu lacked a basic London Dry Gin (e.g. Beefeater) and Schweppes Tonic as they rely on "boutique" gins, beer... More

We went to the Marquis last Monday. We were bought a voucher for the 4 course taster menu as a wedding present from a lovely friend. We had returned from our 2 week Honeymoon last weekend so this was to be a lovely finish to the celebrations. I booked a table for 4, for my husband & I, my brother... More

Excellent foodie restaurant. Taster menu included in our Amazon deal. Fabulous rooms, beautifully decorated in contemporary style, including a Nespresso machine! Lovely little touches, huge bathroom with separate shower. A gem.

During my stay at the hotel, I had the pleasure to have dinner once. It was excellent. Nice atmosphere, very good service and above all: the food was brilliant! Pure and tasteful. The available wines are excellent too! I chose the Kent menu with 4 dishes.

We bought a Groupon voucher for the tasting menu. This also included a cocktail. Upon arrival you are greeted by friendly and informative staff. The food was divine and our waiter described what we were about to consume prior to each of the 12 courses! Would highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions and for couples. We didn’t feel that... More

After a few hours at Kearsney Abbey with our 1 year old granddaughter, we fancied an afternoon tea. As The Marquis was close by, we popped in. It was 4.45pm and they stopped doing afternoon tea at 5pm. Nevertheless we received a warm welcome and sat in the bar area. Lovely decor, lovely clean toilets with toiletries and individual flannels... More

I booked a lunch using a discount voucher for the 4 course tasting menu. When I booked I told the restaurant that I was gluten intolerant and upon arrival was really pleased to find that they had listened and had made changes to the menu for me. This made the meal and the experience very enjoyable and whilst not cheap... More

I thought I could get a light snack, but there was only a set lunch menu. I had an hour and was assured time was sufficient. Scallop starter and a duck main course. Quite unimpeachable with assiduous service. It is not that likely I will be in Alkham again, but I would happily recommend it to anyone, and it is... More

Four of us went here for lunch on the 8th July and found the meal, service and wine to be excellent. Had a great time and will certainly return.
