We were pleasantly surprised when we entered; the atmosphere was very welcoming and had a real rustic feel. There was an excellent choice of dishes for each course offering a la carte dishes and a tasting menu for both meat lovers and vegetarians. Delicious warm homemade bread and butter were offered along with 3 biscuit type canapés all flavoured with... More

We went for lunch at the West House for a treat a couple of weeks ago. It is a small restaurant with on street parking outside. The service was great, really discreet and although it was a 2 hour lunch it just felt really natural, we certainly weren't kept waiting. I had mackerel followed by venison. The quality of the...

I am going to go against the most of the recent reviews here. Sorry. A year ago, my wife treated me to the taster menu for my birthday which I recall was excellent, so we willingly came back again. First off, the poor mark is nothing to do with the excellent service. We were very well looked after and enjoyed... More

We went here for a Anniversary treat, having booked several months in advance. The inside of the restaurant has the feel of a pub, old beams, open fire etc and was very pleasant. Service was fine and appealed to me, we were left to pour our own wine which was ok with me as I don’t particularly like waiters filling... More

Not having ate here before, I chose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday, based on their Michelin star and the tripadvisor reviews. We had the taster menu and every course was fantastically tasty. The wines were lovely that accompanied each course, although I only had a sip of my husband's as I was driving. Service by the chef's wife... More

We had heard about top chef Graham Garrett, and nothing disappointed us. It was as memorable as our meal at Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck, because unlike Heston's chemistry approach, Graham blew us away on his delicate,beautifully fresh locally sourced 6 course tasting meal: A TASTE OF THE GARDEN. We are both keen carnivores, but the various dishes sounded so imaginative... More

A few people we knew recommended the West House so my wife and I decided to give it a go and see for ourselves, we weren't disappointed. The menu was not over extensive but had plenty of originality and certainly enough to interest the taste buds of most people. After the unusual but very tasty starters my wife went for... More

Back again for a set lunch this time. Have not yet found a better restaurant in Kent. At £25 for three lunch courses, it is incredible value for such quality and attention to detail. The complimentary savoury biscuits and fresh bread are also an amazing addition to a wonderful experience. The service is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I had a... More

We had the set lunch menu and it was so flavoursome an beautifully cooked - couldn't fault a thing. The Hare was delicious and the pear desert to die for. Lovely complimentary pre-starters of gorgeous freshly baked bread and savoury biscuits.
