“Would visit again”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Visited for my Birthday - Great menu selection but I was let down by the service, due to the fact that we was a large party (12) - I do believe, however, that if we was a smaller party it would have been fantastic and they would have coped a lot better. Will definitely be trying Sherlocks again but with a smaller party. Look forward to it....

“first time visit”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We, like others, have often seen this restaurant but never visited.until 2 weeks ago when we were looking for somewhere new to dine with friends.what a really pleasant surprise to find such a great place not far from where we live.
we were greeted and made to feel welcome from the start.the food and choice of menu were excellent as to the service.it was quite pricey but not over the top for the quality and such a refreshing change from the usual run-of-the mill restaurants.for a special occasion, this is definitly the place to be.in fact we are going again on thursday for my mothers birthday and I know we will not be disappointed!well done

“Surprising”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had booked to go to a different restaurant in the village only to find it was closed so found ourselves at Sherlocks instead and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food is good quality and plenty of it. The service was not rushed so you felt like you could relax and enjoy the food and it was not expensive either. Worth a visit as long as you're not expecting fine dining.

“Realised what we've been missing out on!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Like a few others that have reviewed on here, we have walked past several times, admired the menu, said we'd try it out, but never did until yesterday.
We have a Tastecard, so if new places dont turn out to be great, we've not spent too much money finding out, but with hindsight, this was never going to be a concern for Sherlocks.
We will most certainly be back, and will share the experience with friends and relatives.
Read all the other reviews if you want, but have faith, go and sample the lovely food for yourself.
It has a very relaxed atmosphere, you're not rushed at all, the menu would have something to suit pretty much anyone and the desserts are particularly lovely, all with fresh ingredients (if you want custard on your sticky toffee pud though, you need to let them know in advance as its made from fresh - none of your powdered or packet rubbish!). N.B. if you dont want to be dissapointed, book in advance, it fills up very quick, understandably!

“Its Official ~ Sherlocks is good for your health”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

I could not understand why during the month of August I was irritable and hard to live with, it then dawned on me that Sherlocks was shut as always during August for a well earned holiday for Joan and David.
My wife and I went last night ( 30th August ) and after a excellent meal, well cooked as always we came home at ease with the world and I was even happy to take my wife shopping the following day.
If you want to improve your health book and eat at Sherlocks in Aylesford, you will not find a better restaurant for the money you pay and the standard of food you eat any where in Kent.

Not looking forward to next August, when you are closed again.

Good to have you back Joan and the restaurant open
