Met friends here for lunch as location seemed convenient. Deciding to give Kilnford another opportunity for lunch as I've never had a decent meal at this venue. I had a baguette and what were supposed to be sautéed potatoes but seemed to be more like pieces of rubber. The coffee tasted burnt. The chocolate cake was very dry. My friend... More

We've eaten here a few times and the food is always good. They use a lot of their own own reared meat produce and whatever you get it's always fresh with some items cooked to order. The burgers are very good and aren't the mass produced rubbish that you get in a lot of places. Delicious cakes too.

Visited on Friday and tried the special, Fish,chips and peas. The fish was delicious as was the batter, light and fresh beats chip shop fish any day. Chips were ok but would have preferred thick cut rather than thin skinny ones.

Great place for a lunch or one their wonderful breakfasts. Service with a smile but as others have said they will need to keep an eye on their prices, which in all fairness reflect the high quality ingredients used throughout. I'd rather they kept the quality up than compromise!

As usual a lovely tasty meal! Just one point, could the drinks in the chiller be properly chilled, otherwise it is excellent. Staff are friendly, the menu selective and the meat is always stunning.
