The food was good, however the lighting was so dim you could barely read the menu. The service was 'stark'

Having wanted to try this restaurant for a while we booked for Valentines Day. Set on the outskirts of Boughton Monchelsea - be aware quite tricky to find, we arrived at what looked like someone's house. No one greeted us as we arrived and we were left to hang our own coats up. We sat in the bar area although... More

Been wanting to go here for a while now and thankfully it did not disappoint. We went here on a week night and were very impressed. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The building and decor are very nicely done with a classy look. The food was delicious (all 5 courses of it)...very well presented and we didn't go... More

We went for a midweek lunch with a groupon voucher - £19 for 4 courses for 2. I've had similar meals in 1 star michelin restaurants. The exterior of the restaurant is a little surprising as it looks like a modern house in the middle of nowhere but that is where the oddness ends. The food is superb and the... More

I visited this restaurant after hearing great reviews. Though the food was delicious and lived up to expectation, I feel that the staff and customer service here extremely let the restaurant down. The staff seemed put out by our requests, were rude from start to finish and were extremely snobby. Though I would love to visit again, I would like... More

It is very difficult to reply in a constructive way to your review as it is vague to say the least. You criticise the staff heavily, yet you do not say what we did that was so rude, offensive and snobby to you, nor do you state how the customer service let the restaurant down. In fact you give no... More

Perfect evening, good food options, and great service. Wine suited the food choices, the other diners didn't look like they had crawled out of a caravan which appears to be the trend locally! Definetly will be back

This was our first visit to the Mulberry Tree and it certainly won't be our last. On arrival we were given the opportunity to have a drink at the bar with comfortable sofas and chairs. We liked the layout of the restaurant with small dining areas as opposed to one big room. Once we were seated different types of bread... More

I took my husband here for his birthday and we had a lovely evening. We had a cosy table in the corner the food was lovely, the wine lovely and the service was great. They booked a taxi for us at the end of the meal when we asked and it came promptly. Would definitely recommend and will definitely go... More

We hadn't been to the Mulberry Tree for a while but bought a Groupon Voucher for a set menu. I was concerned that the choices would be less enjoyable but we were delighted with every course. Not only was the food great, but the wine (Primitivo) we ordered was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was just right and the... More
