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...

It was almost tough as old boots, the vegetables were completely mushy and greens were cold and hard. Thankfully the venue and the staff were very niece as usual. Based on the quality of produce available in... More

Went here at the weekend with the family for a look around, (not been for ages after a run in with a rude and arrogant butcher , who was offended when I asked him about allergen ingredients not being labelled on sausages ) We decided to have some coffee and scones in the tea room. My son has a dairy... More

The food at Kilnford is good quality, fresh and tasty. It is normally pretty busy too - a clear sign of its popularity. I wouldn't say it is great value for money though, for example, the chicken quesadilla for £7.95 had four thin strips of chicken in its filling, however it did taste good.

After hearing good things about this place, decided to stop off for a spot lunch. Arrived to find a nearly full car park, truly a good sign.
