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.

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.

We were only in the area for one night and wanted somewhere to treat ourselves, so we researched on the internet and found the Marquis. As a vegetarian I was pleasantly surprised that the online menu had a vegetarian taster option as well as intriguing options on the main menu.

Lunched with visiting friends on Saturday, this is the best lunch we have ever had here, beautifully presented, fabulous favours, great service. The restaurant was very busy but the chef still had time to come and chat with us, will certainly be back.

We had our wedding here on 31st May and it was absolutely perfect. Great venue for a sophisticated wedding at reasonable prices. Our guests who came still mention the food to us now. Thank you to the marquis and the excellent staff!
