Absolutely amazing; such lovely service and the food is incredible!! The decor and ambience is so nice too, well worth the travel from London!
We had the taster menu which was fine , but not enough food
I it's still the best I Kent
Lovely food lovely setting lovely people well worth the drive out we will stay in the future as the new rooms are now available.
The food was wonderful would certainly recommend thus restaurant certainly with the lunch menu which is reasonably priced.
We opted for the tasting menu, however the portion was rather small and we left the restaurant still feeling hungry.
We have eaten at the West House on quite a few occasions. It is our go to place for special events and dinner with friends. Excellent in all areas!
As always a quality experience in a relaxed, comfortable environment. Family run. Carefully cooked and presented food of a high standard.
I took my mum and her friend for a birthday treat. We all had the 6 course tasting menu lunch with the wine pairing. Everything was just wonderful. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion
Had a great time as always . The food was superb. Thank you.
Excellent food, atmosphere and service. We will definitely visit again.
The food was absolutely sensational. The atmosphere was fabulous with the naked lights and old beams. The restaurant is nicely open plan and not crowded making for a pleasurable experience where you can enjoy good company, great food and wine.
The service was the only thing that let the experience down a little with our wine bottle being wiped with a bare hand between pouring.
Always enjoy the West House, great food and wine!!
First time we had been to a Michelin restaurant and it was a great experience. Food was incredible, it was a small but spacious restaurant and very reasonable prices for the quality of the food. Would highly recommend and would love to go back again.
The Menu on toptable was very different to the choices were limited (but I guess that is a seasonal thing), but the thing that let it down the most is when we called we got voicemail/phone just rang - cant remember which but we wanted to ask what the menu was as my wife wanted venison, duck or lamb - none of which were available. Had we have known that in advance we would have cancelled. The service wasn't warm and welcoming, they didn't make my very significant birthday feel special at all so nothing made up for the food. My wife is a foodie, the food had interesting touches to a traditional British menu but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Very good food. Lovely atmosphere had a very nice Sunday lunch
Will be back
First class service
Meal was of the highest standard
We went, not for the first time, and enjoyed an excellent evening. The food is very good indeed and the friendly welcome and efficient service always help. The 20-mile journey from home has been well worth it on all the occasions I have done it. Congratulations to all involved.
We had a wonderful evening. Sat by an open roaring fire in a beautiful restaurant. The service was excellent and we were made to feel at home. The food was delicious, the menu was fresh and inspired. I have already recommended this to family and friends and have rebooked for a Sunday lunch!
An excellent supper in front of a roaring fire during the cold snap. 3 courses for £45.00, with a 50cl carafe of the gentlest Sancerre for £29.00, was exactly the quiet indulgence we were looking for for our wedding anniversary.
Amazing food and service. Would highly recommend especially for a special occasion.
Superb food. I took my mother and we had the lunchtime menu which I believe is fantastic value.
Lovely tucked away unassuming restaurant. Welcoming friendly staff. Great menu and wine -reasonably priced for such exceptional food. Absolutely delicious. Would recommend to foodies and those less inclined to most Michelin starred restaurants.
My wife and I had the tasting menu on Sunday and I've got to say every course was excellent. Went also with my 5 year old daughter, who had a starter and a desert. There's no kids options as you would expect in this type of restaurant but they are happy to adapt something off the menu to suit.
It's a lovely relaxed atmosphere and we enjoyed it immensely.
Had a wonderful meal for my partner's birthday - perfect location. Small but with enough space to feel private. Service was very attentive, and ability to have a vegetarian tasting menu was fantastic. We stayed in an AirBnB a few minutes up the road, which was worth it as it meant we could partake in the wine pairing! Thoroughly enjoyed
Excellent food and service
Deer is to die for
Wine suited the food.
Finally cheese platter is the best I've ever had
Just what we have always had from Graham and kitchen and team - simplicity with excellence of ingredients and execution; knowledge and friendly communication with front of house
Wonderful lunch on Valentines Lunch. Very at tentative and knowledgeable staff. A great place to go for a special occasion.
We had been before and thought the food was excellent. Quite a small dining room so has a nice feel to it and not noisy. As before the food and service were excellent. It was worth the 45 minute drive to get there. No doubt we’ll go again.
First time here and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Food was outstanding
Fantastic lunch in a cosy & quaint ambience with outstanding food and very friendly service. Loved it and will definitely be back again.
Review author is White Collar Working class ergo only eats this standard of menu 2-3 times a year. Expectations reflect that. Staff. Family run business who got the balance between helpful and "in your face" just right. Answered all the questions I put to them and respected my privacy whilst eating.
Food. As I would expect from a location of this type, I found myself eating, and throughly enjoying all the food types I normally refuse at home. Parsnip, Foie Gras etc. The food was excellent, and yes, I have been disappointed with à la cart restaurants in the past, this one meet all my expectations.
Ambience. There were only 3 dining couples the night I was there. It was my 31st wedding anniversary, we were offered a table beside the log fire and dually accepted given the February sub zero air temperature outside. We had a very pleasant evening getting heat from a log fire, convivial conversation and a low murmur of activity in the background. We were happy with that.
Value for money. I am presently surprised, but also confused how Graham Garrett, he was the chef that night and signed my book for me,can lay on that standard of food for the price I was charged. I was expecting £200+, as that's what I would normally pay at this type of restaurant. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised at the end of the night.
Would I return to the West House? In a heartbeat without a doubt.
Lovely restaurant and great food for special occasions .. Set menu with a wine to match for each course !
Nice food nice ambience but way over priced for what it was .
A very enjoyable meal in relaxed and comfortable surroundings. Food exceptional, flawless, friendly service. Very interesting wine list, meeting all budgets.
We'll be back!
We really enjoyed the ambiance, service and excellent food quality. However, we felt the taster menu could have been a little more substantial to have made it exceptional quality and value
The quality of the food, and the imagination of the combinations, remain as good as ever. The only slight disappointment is with the wine list, which is not as interesting as the delicious food.
It was our first visit and we will go again. The service was friendly and leisurely. The cuisine gave us some interesting surprises and was wonderfully presented.
We went for a quiet ruby wedding anniversary lunch. Superb food and service, and not expensive for a Michelin star establishment. We will go again.
