I've eaten at my fair share of Michelin Star Restaurants and sometimes you leave these restaurants wondering what the fuss is all about. However, this restaurant was excellent!! We were just passing through and thought that it was worth checking if there were any decent restaurants along our route. We went for the Six Course tasting menu. All six dishes... More

This really is quality fine dining in rural Kent. With Kent, not london prices. If you fancy am initmate fine dining experience, with very friendly and not stuffy service, the West House is superb.

The food was excellent. I had oysters to start in an Asian sauce and then monkfish cheeks. My husband had escebeche and then lamb. Each dish was a treat for the taste buds and the eye-beautifully presented and the service was just right. The bread and homemade butter plus pork dripping arrived as we sat down followed shortly by an... More

Visited for an anniversary dinner (we were remiss in not sampling this place earlier as it came highly recommended) and it did not disappoint. The food was faultless and beautifully seasonal. Dishes were tasty and often classic combinations but with clever little twists and little bursts of unusual flavour (partridge with salted damsons). It is rare to find a restaurant... More

My partner took me here back in May for my birthday. The food was amazing! We enjoy eating good food and are happy to pay extra for great quality meals. This restaurant did not disappoint with that in the slightest. Looking forward to coming back soon! The ambience on the night we visited was a bit quiet... therefore we felt... More

Lovely gourmet restaurant with a rock n roll chef. Amuse guele of a profiteroles filled with parmesan set the style and followed by a well-priced three course lunch. The starter of steamed oysters with a light piece of pork crackling was delicious. The perfectly cooked lamb (I think it was loin or best end) with shepherds pie croquette was very... More

Tucked away in a small village of Biddenden in Kent is a restaurant called West House. This restaurant has a simple feel to it but the flavors and ambiance is amazing. The food is fabulous and locally sourced. The ingredients are fresh. They brought us a cheese puff pastry as an introduction and that is how the meal started. I... More

Four us visited The West House for dinner and chose the tasting menu. One of us chose the vegetarian tasting menu. Although we arrived about 20 minutes early, thinking there would be a bar area for cocktails or pre-dinner drinks, there was not - however we were seated promptly and drinks orders taken. There were only two waiting staff but... More
