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.

Wow! What a lovely place. Brunch was really tasty- eggs cooked to perfection. Coffee was fantastic too. Would thoroughly recommend this place to others. Staff were very welcoming and helpful, especially the young girl on the till, Pat.

The food served at Kilnford is beautiful, based on excellent ingredients. The restaurant looks lovely, too. Sadly it's all hard surfaces so there's nothing to absorb noise. If a chair scrapes across the floor at one end everybody hears it. The same goes for cutlery being put on plates. Sadly, the result is a cacophony. I'd love to go there... More

Stopped by with the wife for a quick lunch. I had the chilli burger and she had pasta, we both had hot drinks and total was about £18. Burger was really tasty and well presented, we waited about 15 minutes so again very acceptable

Excellent place to eat whether it is just for a coffee or a meal and the service is really good. There is a fantastic outdoor space for children and also a circular walk which has a place for bird spotting.

We came here after we had the place recommended by locals. It was nice food - only thing that let it down was the fact that it was too busy and the salad was a bit old looking on the plate. Would come here again though :-)

Having been a fan of Kilnford since the day it opened it pains me to say that it no longer maintains the standards it once did. My partner and I went here for lunch yesterday and I ordered the roast dinner, it looks magnificent on the serving counter, however what turned up on my plate bore little resemblance nor was...
