We ate at the White Rabbit, as a family, on 26 September 2014. All was going well until my daughter received a seriously undercooked main course. That could easily have spoilt an otherwise pleasant evening however, the customer service we received after the error was brought to their attention was excellent, including a free dessert for my daughter. I can... More

Popped in on a whim on the way out of Maidstone after a shopping expedition. We have ditched Pizza Express since the portions shrank and quality died on the vine, Prezzo's grease-fest is a turn-off, and we didn't fancy a curry lunch, so through indecision took a punt on the Rabbit. I'm glad we did. Attentive and friendly service, interesting... More

My expectations were quite low, a chain restaurant in the centre of Maidstone, chosen for convenience, but turned into a fantastic evening. 4 of us for evening meal, 3 of us had the pie, and it was absolutely fantastic, lovely tender meat, resting it thick delicious gravy, and fantastic chips to dip in the gravy, totally scrummy. The service was... More

We (six adults and three children) have just had a very pleasant Sunday lunch at the White Rabbit. Everything was fine, friendly, attentive staff and good wholesome food at a reasonable price. Before the meal I did express my concerns, based on reading previous Tripadvisor reviews, to our waiter who explained that they had had staffing problems but that these... More

I have to say that I am little surprised that this place has so many bad reviews, as we did not encounter any of the problems experienced by others. We visited here recently for the first time and I have to say we were impressed. We went on a Wednesday, which happens to be ‘Pie Night’ where an additional pie... More

Following a sunny afternoon enjoying the River Medway my wife and I spent a pleasant couple of hours at the White Rabbit, sipping wine and beers, and people watching. Highly recommended venue.

We came here for a family meal (7 adults, 3 kids), 4 adults ordered starters, they took 40 mins to come out and were horrible - the pate tasted of nothing but fat, and the mains never arrived. After waiting an hour after the starters and being lied to several times (it'll be five minutes, it'll be two minutes, they're... More

Visited for lunch. Arrived at 12 & the place was quite empty which we felt would mean prompt service, we were wrong it was very slow. Plus points were that the waitress was friendly (& did apologise for the delay) & the food was good & reasonably priced.
