Country Kitchen
The Kilcot Inn was built in the 1690’s although there has been a dwelling here since the 1530’s. The Kilcot has a long and varied history but we know the building was initially built by Thomas Davis (b.1654.)

Recently, the Inn had fallen into disrepair and had become derelict. It was bought by a local businesswoman, Mrs. Thomas.

It was slowly refurbished to an excellent standard by the whole Thomas family, including Mr. Thomas, a builder, and her son, who worked on the site for the whole project.

The Kilcot Inn is now proud to offer award winning food and 4* Gold rated rooms- and are thrilled to be the next chapter in the history of The Kilcot Inn.

    Silly question design with reference to the noise level. Utterly ambiguous. The welcome was prompt and friendly and the server very personable. The range of lunch dishes offered was good. We both chose the beef burger in a bun, which was clearly made of good steak and came with a generous fresh side salad, sauté mushrooms, bacon, rocket and cheese, as well as triple cooked chips. Unfortunately, although these looked promising they were in fact very dry and hard inside. Nevertheless this meal represented good value for money given the high quality ingredients and generous portion size. The Kilcot has a genuine country pub ambiance and any noise was unintrusive. We will certainly return.

    Visited on Saturday lunchtime, food on the whole was great, a couple of small issues, the batter on the calamari was not as crisp as it should have been and far too much lettuce with the salmon and prawn salad, other than that it was a lovely lunch.

    Haven't visited for a couple of months, very good menu, part of a party of four and all agreed that the evening was very good. Chicken kebabs were very good, lovely BBQ aroma, lots of lovely potato's, perhaps a few too many as I was a little over faced. Two of the party had Sea Bream that look delicious and reported that it tasted as good as it looked. Slight delay between main and desert course but without being prompted the staff acknowledged to let us know we were not forgotten. Must have been good as I have booked another table in a couple of weeks

    A delicious Sunday roast dinner. We chose two courses for £21.95 but could have had 3 courses for £25.95. A very good choice of meat or vegetarian option for a roast dinner or if you prefer there are salads and a fish option. Lots of starters and desserts to choose from. My only disappointment was the Potato option which was just roast and I personally would have liked less roast potatoes and the option of mash or boiled potatoes. Vegetables were al dente which we liked. I’m sure they would cook vegetables longer if you ask for this on ordering. Wine list and drink options all excellent. Waitress service was also excellent. They have gluten free option which means we will be back with relatives for another delicious meal!

    Very disappointed as not informed it was a “set menu “ upon ordering food. Having visited several times before this wasn’t what we were used to. We were only made aware of set menu when the waitress was aware that not both were having two courses so a very expensive Sunday lunch out. Will not be returning whilst the set menu is in place. Food was not as good as we’ve had before either, gravy like stock water.

    The Kilcot InnResponded on 5 April 2022I'm sorry that you did not notice the set 2 or 3 course price at the top of the menu when you were deciding what to order and I'm sorry that you didn't notice there were no prices next to the items you ordered. If you had queried this, the waitress would have pointed out to you the set price at the top of the menu. This menu has been in place for a year and it works very well for our customers and the business. We still, sadly have to turn customers away every week so it will remain for now.

    We’ve been there before many times. It was one of our favourite places to eat. We went again for Sunday roast and it was very disappointing. They must’ve changed the chef even the brownie was completely different than the one we used to have. Staff were very helpful but sadly we won’t be going back.

    The service was very good especially from the front of house guy. he was attentive and welcoming. The place was clean and the room where we ate was well lit and had lovely little extras such as fresh flowers on the tables. The food was rather disappointing - I had ham egg and chips. The ham was a bit chewy and the chunky chips were very hard on the outside and soft inside. They had a good flavour but were not easy to eat although I realise many people like their chips cooked that way. We didn't have dessert and I ordered a black coffee which I could not drink. it may had been in the jug a long time. I have eaten here before and the quality of the food has been better so I will visit again in the hope that it will be good again.
