Food choice was very good and tasty. Staff help with choices. Much more than your traditional pub grub.

Mothering Sunday and it was snowing outside, the restaurant had all the bustle of a hotel as you would like it to be. Food was A perfect as were portion sizes.

If you want a budget restaurant, with good food and drinks then this is worth a try, good parking facilities as well which can be of a premium at Pembury and Tunbridge Wells

How can you get it so wrong!...service 'the staff are trying but very poor'. It took as long to pay as it did to try to order. Lots of staff tripping over each other. Food. Bread to start, tasted like it was a heated up frozen French stick. Carvery less than average. Very disappointing.
