We visited West house on a saturday night in June whilst on a short break in the surrounding area, we were warmly welcomed, given menu's and opted for the taster menu. The restaurant is a small and intimate space but holds a really good atmosphere, tables are spaced nicely and angled away from each other so you feel like you... More

My girlfriend's parents booked a table for us as a birthday treat for myself on a Friday night in late June. The restaurant itself is easy to find with lots of free parking in and around the area. A lukewarm welcome greeted us on entrance and we were sat at a nice looking table by the disused fire place. We... More

It is was our third visit at the restaurant and my husband booked it again because he absolutely ADORES their olives! I suspected him to take me there just for that... But I don't blame him. The food is amazing (We had the tasting menu, with no wine as we don't drink alcohol much) and the service attentive. At the... More

I ate here recently on a Saturday evening as part of a group of four and we all enjoyed a fantastic dinner. Great cooking, great presentation and friendly service with clever little touches like keeping the bread warm by serving it in a bag with hot stones. A great evening. Thanks.

My wife booked for my birthday with Sunday lunch and my grown up children with all their partners. Food first class - home made taramasalata filled by rabbit and then great chocolate dessert. Topped off with a surprise birthday cake ..more chocolate! Great meal. Thanks

We've been coming here for years and the standards have never dropped. We were running 40 minutes late for this latest booking and they very kindly kept our table free. The food was outstanding again....a special mention for the amazing turbot dish and the sublime milk and honey dessert. We love the informal, unstuffy but efficient service. This restaurant is...

I cannot fault the food, and the staff were polite and friendly, but even better service (eg a sommelier) would enhance the experience even further.

A wonderful meal for my birthday treat. From the massive & succulent olives & generous cheesy snacks to the last bite of a dear little (surprise) birthday cake this was a lunch that made us all exclaim with pleasure & leave plates scraped bare (but the portions were big enough!). The first course of asparagus with a soft long-cooked egg... More

This was our second trip to the West House after a gap of a few years. At first glance it hadn't changed inside (which was not a bad thing) but the service is much improved - the young waiter and waitress were very attentive and even noticed when my boyfriend made a comment in passing that it was my birthday,...

Although I've lived in Headcorn 17 years, this was my first visit to the West House. I went for a family birthday lunch. we had the tasting menu and it was fabulous. and great to have canapes and chocs on the house too. Very friendly service, a lovely room, not rushed at all and delicious food. somewhere definitely worth visiting.... More
