We recently enjoyed a four course taster menu. The portions were very generous and delicious. The service was welcoming and attentive. We have dined here on a number of occasions and the food has always been very good. On one special occasion we did stay overnight. Very comfortable room with a good breakfast.

No-one there to welcome us and when a waiter did appear he acted is if he didn't know why we were there. An hour after arrival I had to ask where the bread was! Starters were served - followed swiftly by the main course. We asked for more water and the waiter only poured one glass until we said we... More

Exactly as it suggests, excellent food drink and atmosphere slightly tainted by the clientele and voucher conversations happening around you. A special place with a captive audience great cocktails and wonderful selection on the menu. Highly recommend but not on a voucher day as the clientele mix is somewhat different.

I think that the venue is over hyped, the food is average not outstanding and pricey for what it is. It is more than 3 years since I last visited so hopefully there has been changes

Description
We hope you're feeling hungry... Look forward to robust, fresh flavors served with imagination and flair in east Kent's newest contemporary restaurant. Our Head Chef presides over heavenly menus that change regularly and use locally caught fish and locally sourced produce. The wine, beer and drinks list is also top notch. Old school... New World... Kent wines from Kent vineyards... Local real ales... Great taste is everything at the Marquis.
