Life is a series of unforgettable moments so why not enjoy one of these moments in our glass conservatory restaurant overlooking the English Channel with the mood enhanced by the sounds of our talented pianist (on selected days).

The Grand has an enviable range of regional produce including Kentish Pip Cider brewed in Canterbury, a selection of Kentish Red, White and Rosé Wines from Biddenden, Ashford and our own exclusive “The Grand Ale” brewed by the Old Dairy Company in Tenterden.
Our wine list from our excellent cellar showcases the best wines both locally and further afield.

I booked for Sunday lunch at 1pm and asked for a window table. When we arrived, we were told that there was no booking for us. When I protested, they found my booking under "Afternoon tea". This was not a good start but things got better. The staff laid up a table by the window and looked after us well. The carvery was good - slightly tough meat but good selection of vegetables. Drinks were very reasonable and the total bill was less than expected. The hotel has lovely old world charm and in a perfect position for a walk after lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Lovely Christmas lunch with good service accompanied by a pianist playing seasonal tunes which added to the occasion. Highly recommended.

Nice food, good service, great live pianist. Just too quiet. Need to rethink publicity if wanting mire diners and ambience.

Been here for breakfast many times but never for dinner before. Atmosphere was as expected, the place has a shabby elegance of bygone days. We were very lucky and sat on a table in the window with wonderful views of the lead and the sea. There were a number of vegetarian choices that weren’t the usual pasta or risotto. Some thought had been put in to them. I would say that a few “tweaks” were needed with my choice of halloumi/chips/onion rings, mainly being a longer cooking time for the chips and halloumi. Partners steak was good evidently. Service was very good. Overall a pleasant evening that is good value. We would return!
