Description: We hope you're feeling hungry... Look forward to robust, fresh flavors served with imagination and flair in east Kent's newest contemporary restaurant. Our Head Chef presides over heavenly menus that change regularly and use locally caught fish and locally sourced produce. The wine, beer and drinks list is also top notch. Old school... New World... Kent wines from Kent vineyards... Local real ales... Great taste is everything at the Marquis.

We booked a room at The Marquis given its ideal location for the Eurotunnel and having read the Tripadvisor reviews, decided to book a table for dinner in the restaurant. Unlike some other reviewers, we were given a warm welcome by all the staff we encountered, who could not have been more helpful. We opted for the Kentish Menu, consisting... More

We ate here for dinner as a family. I cannot fault the food which was really very good and fairly priced. Portions were good and the wine list was reasonable. The food offering was quite adventurous and based on local Kentish products with lots of ingredients that you would not often come across and we liked this very much. Lots... More

I went to the Marquis with a group of friends. We had the Kent Lunch Menu. The choice was limited but between us we tried everything and no one was disappointed! Probably my favourite part of the meal was the beautifully cooked braised Dexter beef. The chocolate dessert was a close second. We had arrived early but had chosen to... More

We were shown to a round table which suited us very much. The food was served beautifully presented and the flavours were amazing. Amuse bouche were served prior to... More

Tucked away in sleepy Alkham is a nice little restaurant serving fine dinning, the menu is extremely limited but what we had for lunch all 3 small course were very flavoursome and for just over £15 for 3 courses you could not complain. The male waiters were attentive and friendly and professional, the only let down was the blonde growler... More

Lovely food but atmosphere a little stuffy. Good service but it seemed slightly frowned upon when staff chatted to us.

We had a really excellent lunch, all of us were delighted. The food was exceptional and good value. The staff could not have been more efficient or kinder. We only had one hour for lunch due to having to attend a funeral and the chef made sure we had a full lunch and everyone went out of their way to... More

From the moment we arrived the staff were very friendly and accommodating. They poured our drinks promptly and we were shown to our table. The layout and ambience is relaxed and we immediately chilled out. The menu was a pleasure to read, and when the food arrived it looked and tasted divine. Each course was describedin detail by our waiter... More

I really don't want to denegrate this rather lovely restaurant but gIven that we were told they hope to attain a Michelin star then consistency and other elements need to change. The settings are gorgeous. The building is charming and the staff very welcoming and professional. The menu reads beautifully and offers wonderfully different herb and embellishment items that are...
