Nice venue, good menu choice and good quality well presented food. Free drinking water and fresh bread and made butter a nice touch.Pleasant friendly non intrusive staff, well served.
What would be a nice addition would be somewhere casual inside to sit other than at the table for pre and post dinner drinks.

Very enjoyable afternoon tea. The staff were efficient and pleasant. You could have as much tea as you wanted and the food was lovely. Would certainly recommend to friends and would visit again.

The afternoon tea was amazing. The atmosphere was relaxed and you felt at ease straightaway. The staff could not do enough for you.

It’s a hidden gem in the Kent countryside

Food was delicious & appreciated the quiche instead of goats cheese one. However inundated with wasps & flies, suggest you put an insectocutor somewehere in restaurant? Also found the building works nouse very distracting. Hope it is finnished soon.

The team at Frasers we’re exceptional. They were attentive and made a family celebration extremely special. The food was outstanding and exceeded our expectations for a remote restaurant in Ashford. We will definitely be returning very soon!

I was surprised to see we were seated in the marquee. I would have preferred the main restaurant. It was windy & therefore rattly. The food was very nice & the lady singing was very good & a nice addition.

The food was amazing with a very pretty setting. The service at the table was great although it felt awkward when we walked in. No one approached us immediately which is fine when you have a waiting area but we were standing in the middle of the eating area. It was extremely quiet with little atmosphere and with 2 children, who are well behaved there was quite a lot of
shhhhing going on! Would be good for a group booking where you make your own atmosphere!

A very pleasant venue; intimate scale and very attractive setting.
Tasting menu was vert good - each course was fine. Slightly incoherent sequencing - sorbet was pudding esque and preceded an exceptional parfait/cheesecake whereas a palate cleanser and/or prior to pigeon would have been preferable. Wine flight was Ok but a little ordinary, but was very good value. Will definitely return to try table d'hote. Recommended as a 'go and enjoy'

The food was fabulous, there was nothing on the tasting menu my partner and myself did not like. The service was very good but the restaurant was very quite so we did not feel inclined to linger.

Frasers was a brilliant find. We went there to celebrate a Birthday and as it was near to Valentines Day we chose the Valentines Tasting menu. It was superb. Portions were perfect and the food amazing.
Frasers is a little in the middle of nowhere but it was truly worth the drive. Will definitely look forward to our next visit.

Amazing afternoon tea. So good this was our 3rd time at Frasers. The team are always super lovely and welcoming, nothing is too my trouble. The food is amazing - sandwiches are fresh, the sausage roll is the best I’ve ever tasted and is always served warm alongside the cheese and onion tart which again is super scrummy. The scones are huge and getting more jam or cream is never a problem. Always have a great time and always recommend others. It’s my group of friends go to place for afternoon tea now. We’ll be back soon no doubt!

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and what a great find it was. one of the friends we went with has an allergy to fish and the staff couldn't have been more understanding and helpful - they really went out of their way to make us comfortable. The service was a relaxed and nice mix of attention but not overly so. The setting is beautiful modernised barn finished to the highest level.

we all had Steak and it was the very best we ever tasted and no steak knives needed... well done to the wonderful chef they have there - the desserts were the only time we were all quiet - savouring the tastes !. t

I really cant praise the restaurant enough. the only very slight downside was its in the middle of nowhere - long drive down country lanes to get there and late evening you can easily miss the small green restaurant sign. There needs to be some lighting on the dirt path leading up to the restaurant as it is very dark. the a la cart menu is limited to three choices of each course - not that I am a fan of long menus but perhaps another choice on main course would be good and finally the coffee is pretty limited selection.

having said all that, the four of us had a fab night and its certainly somewhere we will return to - maybe even try a stay in the lovely accommodation they offer.
Well done to all the team - and thanks for a lovely evening

I took my wife here for our anniversary and we had an amazing 3 course lunch. The setting on a working farm is unique and provides a great setting. The food was absolutely delicious and looked as good as it tasted. The service was excellent, keeping us topped up, food arriving in a timely manner (not too fast or too slow), and just really friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be coming back soon!

We went for New Years Eve. It was beautiful & food outstanding. There was a Nice atmosphere & the Jazz band was good but not for the whole of the evening, it got a bit boring. I feel music should of changed & livened up with modern party music so everyone could've danced.

We waited upon arrival to be welcomed even though we were precisely on time. The food was good (actually faultless) though for a Sunday lunch it had to be pre-ordered. Never had that anywhere else we've eaten. Their idiosyncasy. There were only 2 tables for lunch (us and a 6) so the ambiance was lacking, no complaints with the decor. We never did get a reasonable explanation as to why every other table had a table cloth but not ours. A later table of three came for afternoon too and that looked delicious. It was a good experience but we're not encouraged to return.

We had three meals at various times of day as part of an overnight stay. All three were lovely, tasty and beautifully presented. The staff team (both before and during our stay) were brilliant; all very friendly, welcoming and so helpful! I would totally recommend Fraser's as a place to eat, but better still as a place to eat and stay - the perfect, peaceful getaway in the middle of the lovely Kent countryside.

Good atmosphere, excellent food & a very attentive waiter. They accommodated my needs but as a Pescetarian I had three fish dishes on the tasting menu & two were the same. I feel a different vegetarian option should be offered such as the vegetarian Wellington or a mushroom alternative. But we had a really good night & enjoyed the whole experience.

This is a splendid setting. Having booked for afternoon tea it was disappointing not to be offered a choice of teas! This is an obvious area for improvement. However the food was excellent and plentiful, such that we had the remains wrapped to take away. It was an unhurried occasion which suited our needs. We would certainly visit again.

Nice small restaurant with well priced a la carte menu. However disappointing choice of local English wine. Perhaps suggest a separate list of local wines like the gin menu? Shame not to show off lovely local wine.
