This restaurant is lovely, the food was amazing and reasonably priced and beautifully presented. The drinks were fab too. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is well decorated, plenty of car parking and interesting quirks like old plates and cutlery.
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the website isn’t up to date and the menu on the website is not actually available. When on site the options are very limited, we didn’t mind as the food was so good but it would have been good to have some additional options to choose from.
I would definitely recommend and come back again tho!
Highly recommend, lovely atmosphere and food was great
Lovely dining experience during difficult covid conditions. Service and food, while restricted menu, were very good.
Another great al fresco dining experience at the Kitchen. Wonderful food again.
Menu not as advertised on their web site. A wasted trip for us food wise.
Loved the new creative outdoor grazing idea, simple but very tasty
During the pandemic the meals are all served in a courtyard. On the day we went it was windy and chilly. Perhaps blankets might be needed in a few weeks or patio heaters.
Excellent quality local ingredients prepared to perfection!
Fantastic Sunday roast sat outside in the pretty garden. Relaxed but great service. Homemade brownies are a must.
Lovely location, super food and always great friendly service
Wonderful meal in the courtyard. Can’t go wrong with the Kitchen @ Farnborough.
Delicious lunch in a lovely setting. Staff were friendly and helpful too. Looking forward to going again!
Very rude owner greeted us with contempt asking “who are you?” and telling us that “you can’t sit there” rather than asking to take a name and showing us to a table!!
Once we were seated by a much nicer member of staff, the food was actually very good but the initial welcome (or lack of) was very disappointing.
The owner was very sarcastic and acted like customers were a pain upon arrival. Made a couple of comments that didn’t make you feel welcome. Not a great start. The Courtyard menu was limited on a Sunday with only a beef Sunday lunch option. The rest of my family don’t eat red meat so sandwich or pizza was the only other choice. Beef was very good though!
Fabulous place, great food and service. We will definitely be back. Thank you :-)
We love it there. The food is so tasty and the service is relaxed and yet, efficient. Our top foody place to go!
We had such a great time at The Kitchen....we love the new outdoor COVID dining has really improved The Kitchen experience. Ant is such a character and great to see him front of house. We will return asap!
The Kitchen has beautifully designed its Courtyard space and serves excellent food with friendly service.
So good to have The Kitchen open. The courtyard is beautifully done and the food was fantastic. Bike racks and dogs welcome.
We decided to visit the kitchen on Sunday for an early Mother’s Day treat. We ordered the Beef Roast and I can honestly say it was the best Roast I’ve ever had! The beef was cooked to perfection, We’ve visited the kitchen a few times now and we’ve never had a bad meal.
Excellent food and lovely surroundings - old style country inn - suits all types of customers
Limited menu. Food quality average. Service ok. Not good value.
As regular visitors to The Kitchen we enjoy the varied menu and excellent food. The enthusiastic staff are always quick to greet and make you feel at home. Our recent visit was as enjoyable as we expected and our food well up to the usual standard. In the area where there are many places to eat few get better than this when it comes to service and value.
Second visit in 2 days. Both lunch and dinner were a very good all round experience. Watch out for the sticky toffee pudding. Defiantly a 10 out of 10. Highly recommended not only by my self but, also my guests.
We had a lovely lunch. Food well presented and tasty. Little noisy as we were right in Front of the bar. Definitely go again!
Loved it! Found it driving through the village. Superb
Absolutely delicious, the brownie was outstanding because it was so unusual in taste flavour and presentation. Outstanding service and would highly recommend.
The menu albeit good seemed limited and didn't appear to reflect a Valentine romantic dining experience.
Incredible food and brilliant night out. Definitely recommend to anyone.
Always like this restaurant and food was super. We often walk too it too during the summer.
We booked a table for 5 after being told that this restaurant was very good. We ordered the mushroom and goat cheese starter which was over salted and not pleasant. The Jerusalem artichoke soup was too sweet and the pork scratching where too crunchy. My husband had the game pie for mains and the pastry was undercooked and tasted of flour. We had 3 cod mains which was average and bland. We've definitely had better food than this. The restaurant was also very expensive for what we had. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful, she was lovely.
Entirely reliable for very good food and great service. Comfortable seating, eclectic and charming crockery, silverware and... linen napkins. My go to place for a relaxed meal.
Overall great experience with amazing food and service. Would highly recommend.
Entertaining colleagues from the US, great that we could talk discreetly and hear each other. They loved the look and the whole ambience. The food was lovely, dietary requirements were easily satisfied from the standard menu, all courses were delicious. Perfect.
We had a lovely evening great service lovely food. Thank you.
Good ambiance. Friendly service. Excellent food. We will return.
Great food and fantastic service. We were made welcome and felt comfortable. We will return. Cheers 😊
The food was absolutely delicious especially the parsnip soup and pumpkin gnocchi, the staff were really friendly and it was such a lovely atmosphere - we are still talking about what an unexpectedly great evening we had and can't recommend it highly enough. We will definitely be back :)!
Well balanced menu, delicious food, lovely atmosphere and just the right level of service all made for the perfect lunchtime catch up with old friends. We all had empty plates and all smugly declined the desert menu, which looked very tasty.
Definitely worthy of revisits.
Excellent food & staff were extremely helpful & accommodating to my party needs. A most enjoyable evening spent with friends.
