Mark Sargeant - ex right hand man to Gordon Ramsay - has put together an exciting menu celebrating a broad range of modern English and European cuisine, utilising the fabulous local and seasonal produce from the surrounding Kent countryside.
We sat down at 7pm so not the busy period. Service was attentive, professional and friendly. Food was very good from a varied menu. The wine and champagne excellent. We are local so will of course visit again.
The food was great, service great, ambiance too stark and lacked warmth. Main courses quite pricey.
Incredible food & exceptional service. Our waitress was information, attentive & knowledgeable. The food was absolutely amazing. I cannot wait to return.....except next time I’ll have the tasting menu with wine pairing as that looks delicious.
enjoyed a lovely three course lunch where each course was a delight to look at and eat!
Real attention to detail and pleasant , relaxed service and ambiance.
The dining room is a delight, in the charming village of Wye. Service was meticulous. The wine list is thoughtful and not over-priced and our chosen Rhone was superb.
However, the 'Sunday menu' was totally the wrong choice for this excellent Spanish-themed restaurant, which we value and have been to many times before, though not on a Sunday.
Thin slices of perfectly roast sirloin, crispy roast King Edward potatoes, Yorkshire pudding cooked in the meat juices around the bone . . . it was definitely not! The cauliflower in a blue-cheese sauce was very good, as was the carrot soup - all beautifully presented and served. The panacotta dessert was lovely but not the semi-raw rhubarb with it.
Go to the Wife of Bath for its wonderful, imaginative tapas, but never on a Sunday!
We did the tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fantastic. The food was delicious and the wine had been carefully curated to balance out all of the flavours.
Highly highly recommend.
Met some friends, arrived 12.30, left 4ish - food was great and wine exceptional. Oz Shiraz.
Can’t wait to be able to go again.
Excellent cuisine and thoughtful service. Sufficiently different and interesting menu. Not rushed and good space between tables for privacy. Friendly but professional. Not cheap but fair value.
The meal was good quality and it is a very nice place. It’s not cheap - our meal cost us north of £60 each - but bog standard meals in a pub in the area can cost £30 and leave you feeling you could have cooked better staying at home. This meal I definitely could not have cooked at home.
The staff where very accommodating and friendly, I have a milk intolerance and they made sure they said everything on the menu that I could have all the way down to dessert and what they would recommend and nothing was ever too much. the food was amazing, the halibet was absolutely incredible. the atmosphere was relaxed but beautifully decorated. Have recommended to family already.
Best food in the area, perfect service. Absolutely love it :-)
The tasting menu was really lovely with a wide range of food and flavours. The service was great and we could not fault it; really helpful and friendly team. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Staff really lovely, welcoming professional, knowledgeable, and very smiley. Atmosphere relaxed and lovely surroundings. The food was presented really nicely we enjoyed the starter and main but the clematis gataux although looked exquisite did not taste of clematine at all, it looked as though it would be lemony but on taste as a bit of a disappointment. But other than that lovely lunch thank you
This is my 2nd visit. We had a lovely time and the food was delicious although not as good as my visit at the beginning of December. Our waitress was wonderful and provided a top class service. The passion fruit souffle was out of this world, the pork belly was average.
I would still highly recommend. £120 for lunch for 3, no wine.
Fantastic food, great service.
Looked after very well but party had variable comments on the food and value thereof rating generally at 7 out of 10. Probably would not return.
We met our friends for lunch, the food, service was good. My friend banged his head in the gentlemen toilets which slightly marred the occasion. Signs were in place on the second beam, but was easily missed.
Despite Mother Nature cutting the power off a few times the Chef managed to keep everything going / well done! Beautiful plates of food and excellent service. Well done team.
We were given a voucher for Christmas to visit this wonderful restaurant. Decided to book for valentines evening - it was a perfect choice!
From the moment we entered the restaurant to leaving it was 1st class. We both had the 5 course taster menu - one being vegetarian. Food was absolutely beautiful and the staff were all amazing. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be returning very soon!
Lovely surroundings, excellent service and the meal was superb.
My friend and I enjoyed our lunch at the Wife of Bath. Your staff were forgiving about our late arrival, occasioned by problems with parking. We came by separate vehicles and we both found the car park full. Surprising as the restaurant was not. The space is very tight and we both found it more difficult to leave, than enter (as indeed did the person in front of me). If this is normal, then guests should be advised to park in Wye Village, rather than as the restaurant.
We chose the menu of the day, and the food was excellent, washed down by a nice dry Prosecco. The poached Hake was particularly memorable.
Service was attentive, but not unduly so. The background music was slightly intrusive, at this volume, I would have preferred Mozart or Telemann.
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and will certainly return when another special occasion beckons.
Always great food and great service. So hard to choose from the menu as I always want every dish but what ever you choose is creative and well done.
The food was excellent, the service was attentive but not over. It was busy yet intermit. We will be returning.
very nice quality restaurant. good food, ambience and service. would not put anyone off going there for a special occasion
Thank you for a really nice meal, we will be back.
The food was amazing and the staff were friendly and professional I couldn't fault it at all.
Food was excellent and well presented. Staff were friendly and assertive.
Would not hesitate to book again.
My wife and I had a pleasant meal here but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the set lunch menu which I didn’t find to be good value. On the day we went it was very average and I had expected more.
Can’t fault the service though and it’s a nice place to sit.
Bread is amazing!
Really lovely meal which considering end of bin wine offer and quality of food, was extremely value for money! Francesca I think was our waitress and should be commended for her exceptional and friendly service throughout.
I found the food to be over priced for the standard received. The main dish was extremely salty and in today's life style salt should not be a main ingredient. The starters were lovely, and the extra little tasters were a nice added bonus. The bread and home made butter was also good bread slightly over cooked. Staff were amazing and very helpful. Sparkly wine not quite chilled enough.
Fantastic restaurant, lovely food in a countryside setting. Service is amazing too.
Fabulous meal at Saturday lunch time. Wines by 50cl carafe. 3 course lunch, g&t and 2 x 50cl carafes £115. Great friendly service
Revisiting The Wife of Bath after 60 years. Recognised very little, but a really lovely experience.
I don't look the same either!
Very pleasant lunch. Attentive staff, modern surroundings. Think noise levels could be quite high if fully booked, but overall a good experience.
Such a beautiful venue, the staff were very helpful and friendly we had such a great time the food was amazing. We will definitely be back
Excellent all round and we have never had a bad experience there.
Brilliant food and service. Appalling noise level noted by us and two other tables which made us leave early. A shame.
Excellent food with friendly staff and good service.
Food was excellent and the service even better. Highly recommended
All the dishes we had were very tasty and finely prepared. Great attention to detail . The service was also very attentive.
We brought some friends with us for lunch. They had never eaten at the Wife of Bath. They were very impressed. The food and presentation was excellent, as it always is. I have never had a bad, or even average experience at this restaurant. It is always fantastic.
