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

We booked the restaurant last minute and were served a fantastic standard of gastronomy. The meal was excellent top quality from start to finish. Room in the hotel was to a very high standard right down to the home... More

Great food with paired wines. The variety, quality and quantity of food was great and the paired wines went really well. Would have liked some more adventurous drinks pairings but this didn't detract from the meal.

Booked for my husband and I as a treat, as we love afternoon tea. Waited for a little while to be greeted, the staff were busy but never acknowledged us to say won't be long! We were shown through to our table, restaurant was light and airy. After about 10 mins the waiter asked what tea or coffee we would... More

Diner à deux for our wedding anniversary. Splendid meal, excellent service, decent wine list. Surprised to find no Cognac for a digestif.

Visited with friends, and welcomed by polite, friendly staff. The meal was superb. Delicious lamb almost melted in the mouth. As you would expect from fine dining, not huge portions but just enough to leave room for a pudding. And what a pudding it was. All of this washed down (crude description) with fine wine. Unfortunately I won't be able... More

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.
