    We’ve eaten at The Phoenix twice now and not only is the food delicious and the staff wonderful, we feel it’s better value and taste than The Sportsman which is why we return for special occasions. Thankyou!

    Very nice pub. Went for Sunday lunch at 2 o’clock. Got there early so sat in the pleasant garden with a drink first. The staff were friendly and attentive. Food was very good but very expensive. I don’t mind paying for quality but this was a tad overpriced. I haven’t rated any pub Sunday lunch experience more than 8.5 out of 10 yet and The Phoenix gets 8.5 as well.

    Excellent Sunday roast - beef, pork or guinea fowl - or a very tasty veggie option. A massive yorkshire pudding crispy roast spuds and plenty of veg. Staff very attentive and helpful.

    The food is actually pretty good - The service is incredibly amateur and the table layout etc is not a match for the food. Bread is poor. I have been twice- the Sunday lunch was excellent. The bill is very heavy indeed.

    I've visited a fair amount of times and could never fault the food or service. Unfortunately my experience this time round I was disappointed. The main meat was very tough and hard to to cut which we let the waitress know who said she would feed back to the chef. We heard nothing at all after this, no apology was said. Considering the price you pay for the dishes and the small portion size it's a shame no actions were taken. The last few times attended we have also been the only people in the restaurant eating.

    Fantastic food and fantastic staff. We love coming here. Always made to feel welcome. Out of this world Sunday roast. Took a well earned nap to sleep it off. This is our favourite place to eat and drink in Faversham. The garden is also a must visit for when the weather is nice.

    After enjoying lunch here a few times we decided to try their dinner menu. We ordered our drinks whilst we waited for the menu to be printed out. Once it arrived I was slightly disappointed and would’ve liked a couple more mains options to choose from. Once the food arrived the presentation was exceptional but the portions were small. More nouveau cuisine which we were not expecting or advertised. After, we were asked about the food and explained it was great except we could of had more of it. We were told that it’s meant to be a three course meal or we could have sides if we wanted more. To be honest, a bit of extra vegetables would’ve been sufficient. A main at £23 at a pub should not need sides. Been to the Three Mariners whose food is excellent but portion size is better.

    My husband a I go to different pubs every Sunday for a roast with our big Turkish dog and this place does not disappoint! Absolutely delicious vegetarian roast, water for the dog and coconut sorbet to die for. Our waiting staff were brilliant. Very friendly, attentive and chilled. 100% would recommend for carnivores, herbivores and furry friends

    The service was impeccable and you accommodated our dog at short notice. The food overall varied in quality. The beef and vegetables were good, the roast potatoes were overcooked. They did seem to be cooked earlier even the day before and then re heated. Not much choice on desserts and the whole meal was overpriced for the quality that it was.

    Very impressed with the experience at The Phoenix. Had been for drinks and the menu looked great so we booked for Sunday lunch with family - it didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious & the service fantastic. Roast beef was perfectly cooked and my Mum said the panna cotta was the best dessert she’d ever tasted! We will be back… thank you :)

    Lunch with husband parents. Everyone had a fantastic time. Staff very good and professional. Food excellent. Only one small comment would had preferred linen napkins to paper as I feel this let's done the fine dining experience. Overall a true gem and all areas in establishment exceptionally clean. Lovely garden. Dog friendly.
