We got lost trying to find Biddenden and arrived half an hour late for our booking, but there were no recriminations and we were made most welcome. I should say we almost swerved this restaurant because they have foie gras on the menu and I normally steer clear of restaurants which accept cruelty as part of food production. The Michelin... More

We use good restaurants but this was our first Michelin experience. We dressed up as it was a special occasion, as did some others but one man wore jeans & shirt, we found the atmosphere welcoming & relaxed. We asked for advice re wine choice & were pleased with the recommendation (not the most expensive), it did pair well with... More

My wife and I ate at West House this week - I have to say it's right up there as one of the very best meals I've had. A lot of though has gone into the food, it's served in measured portion sizes with tremendous flavour and presentation. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly, and the overall experience top notch... More

First time in a Michelin starred restaurant and we are expecting good food but given the reputation of "posh" restaurants for style over substance we were sort of expecting to still be hungry at the end of the meal! I was pleased to say the meal was very good and perfectly sized. There were only 2 waiting staff on which... More

We has lunch there a few days ago and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and standard of service.Whilst on the set lunch menu there is a limited choice it offers enough to serve most palates and the little extra's which arrived were much appreciated.There is a car park which unfortunately we failed to find but is...

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.
