“Suprisingly Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Was a little apprehensive as the menu seemed rather limited but the food served was easily the best my wife and I have eaten in the last couple of years and that includes restaurants, a cruise and other hotels.
For 3 courses expect to pay around £30 exc.drinks and whilst that's not cheap it is worth it I promise you.

“Dining room of Mercure - lousy!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Very poor food. Undercooked pork on our entire table of 6. No satisfaction.
We were in a coach tour of older persons and we felt like we didnt exist.
We think they thought they could get away with poor quality food with older people!

“You do a set menu not a carvery make that clear to customers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012 via mobile

You advertise a carvery on your website and the 6ft sign out side. After visiting your resturant it was clear its just a set menu and not a very good one at that. Make that clear to your customers in future for less disappointment

“Never again!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012 via mobile

Myself and my partner drove past the mercure in pembury and saw a 6ft sign outside advertising a sunday CARVERY for £6.99. We then went home and called the hotel to book a table for the CARVERY for the following sunday, the person that answered the phone said yes there were tables available for the CARVERY so we booked, on the sunday my partner called the hotel to find out what meat would be served and we were told beef, pork and salmon, on arrival the staff were very pleasant and well presented BUT a lady came over and handed us a menu?? Now I've been to a lot of CARVERYS and have never needed a menu so I questioned the lady and she told us that they no longer do a CARVERY only a set menu! Myself and my partner called the hotel twice prior to going and both times the staff failed to tell us this information!! Then we got to the meal, the pork was chewy, the veg was rock hard, there were only 2 potatoes and the portions were minuscule...never again!
