Description: This bright and airy restaurant on the London Road in Sevenoaks, Kent, has a striking cosmopolitan interior and a stunning modern English menu. The first floor dining room at House on the Hill is filled with natural light and boasts exposed bricks, wooden floorboards and deep red feature walls. Created using locally sourced produce, the House on the Hill's menu features English classics with an eclectic Mediterranean twist. We love the seared cod cheeks wrapped in pancetta with citrus and vanilla butter and grilled sweet peppers; Home smoked duck breast roasted with honey and black pepper, onion confit mashed potato, wilted spinach, garden peas and mustard gravy; and the Iced hazelnut parfait, chocolate and chilli sorbet and raspberry sauce.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Had an enjoyable evening. The food was good quality and beautifully presented. Being upstairs away from the door was a definite bonus on a cold evening. We waited a little longer than we would have preferred before we could order but then the food arrived very quickly. The free 'amuse bouche' which was delivered within about 2 minutes was a definite bonus. There was a slight hitch with cold potato on one plate but this was quickly remedied and the staff were very pleasant and friendly. Price about about £80 for two mains 1 starter, I dessert, 1 bottle of wine and a soft drink. Will return.
