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.

Would certainly recommend this restaurant. We had a fantastic meal here - we tried the four course Taster Menu - perfect from start to finish. Thanks for a good evening sampling excellent culinary skills.

We ate twice at the Marquis over one weekend and believe that they have hit the nail on the head with both quality and price. The food is sublime and the choice of wines is superb; clearly professionals here know what they are doing. Both meals were truly sumptuous and we are still talking about it a week later. We...

Visited for the third time in the last four months to sample the delights of the Kentish Lunch Menu. A little bit disappointed to see that the 3-course menu had risen from £15.50 to £19.95! This time there were five of us including family down from Cumbria. It seemed to take too long before we were asked for our orders...perhaps... More

Thank you for your review and we will take on board your comments about the slow start to your meal. The Kentish lunch menu is very popular and generally has items from the A la Carte menu on it, so it's great value at just £19.95 for 3 courses. I look forward to seeing you back here in the future... More

My husband and I had a rare date night here while visiting family in the area.

We have been going to this restaurant since the previous owners took over but the new management has left a lot to be desired. We had to change our booking for Boxing Day lunch from 3 to 2 people but gave them a couple of weeks notice. We were still charged a cancellation fee! The nibbles with drinks at the... More

Thank you for your review and I am sorry you feel hard done by.

We held our winter/Christmas wedding here on 23rd December I am presuming the busiest time of year for the Marquis - not that it impacted in anyway on our wedding arrangements.

Had a lovely meal with my daughter. First time here since new chefs but still as tasty. Presentation first class and tastes superb. Definitely recommend. Staff friendly and attentive. Bar area does need refurb as carpet badly stained. Christmas decorations quite poor but restaurant still comfortable. Thank you to the chefs and waiting staff.
