“Pure indulgence”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Fine dining at it's best, with service to match and atmosphere and ambiance set in a beautifully restored building oozing with character and the price won't break the bank, definitely returning!
Didn't stay in the rooms but they looked fantastic.

“Amazing Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Went expecting the usual roast but not here - starter was pork beignets with sorbet and crackling - what a mix, probably the best starter I have ever had! Rest of meal was stunning and at £100 for three with wine was very reasonable. Why isn't it packed out all the time - maybe it looks too posh from the outside but go and try it!

“Finest fine dining”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

My husband and I had a wonderful meal at The Townhouse. The food was superb, the staff were fantastic and we met the chef who had kindly compiled a special menu to meet my awkward dietary requirements. We would recommend this restaurant ans will definitely be going back soon.

“Great food, no atmosphere”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I'm sure that Gareth Cox at The Townhouse, Maidstone, is a talented chef. He makes great food, so clearly he knows what he's doing. I was delighted by his scallops and went on to be impressed by his seabass.

However, if Cox wants to put his name to a restaurant or 'place', he needs to find one where the front-of-house staff don't rule and where they don't think it's okay to lay up for breakfast whilst people are finishing dinner. This wouldn't be an issue in a busy restaurant attached to a hotel and would have gone unnoticed if we didn't happen to be the only people eating there tonight.

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We love Sunday lunch but finding the quality in Kent let alone Maidstone is a real challenge. So you can imagine how delighted we were to visit here for the first time before popping off to the fireworks at Leeds Castle and find that the food really is excellent plus Adam & team deliver service where nothing is too much trouble. Book a table you will not be disappointed.
