The West House Ratings and Reviews
A superb lunch time meal enjoyed with friends. I started with said and went on to a very tender lamb rump which I would defy any chef to better. The cherry chocolate desert course was a perfect finish to the meal for me. Two of us had the lamb, the other two had the hake which was equally enjoyable. A wonderful restaurant in a pretty village setting. Going again next week with two other friends!
This was our second visit to The West House having previously been there for an evening meal to celebrate my wife's birthday. The Sunday Lunch was absolutely superb, service was great, very friendly and not at all pretentious. Food was really excellent and decent helpings that were of superb quality and just the right amounts. We have no hesitation in recommending this to our friends.
Excellent food, it is not often that you can say that all 3 dishes were perfect, even for Michelin star restaurants, but The West House certainly achieves this, the portions were just the right amount and with food of this quality you can leave with a feeling of full satisfaction without being uncomfortable.
Service is friendly and every need is catered for, must visit again soon.
An excellent meal in good surroundings with excellent service. Health issues meant that we had not been there for a couple of years. We took two friends who we thought had been with us in the past. They hadn't and were most impressed and we have resolved to dine there together more often. There's no doubt that this is one of the hidden gems in the Weald of Kent, quite close to where we live and we will visit regularly from now on.
The food was excellent. Creatieve and original and truly memorable. We had a warm and cheerful welcome. The service was attentive but never impossing. Both the young man and the lady who were taking down orders and serving were absolutely friendly and not at all overbearing.
Absolutely stunning meal. Every mouthful was a delight. Excellent wine list and delicious craft beer. Great service. What a treat to find superb fine dining in a lovely non-stuffy atmosphere so close to home. We will definitely be returning for our next special occasion.
My husband and I really enjoyed our taster menu meal celebrating another birthday. It was everything we were expecting....quaint typically olde english village setting, with easy parking, cosy ambience, knowledgeable service, beautifully presented high quality tasty dishes. Although pricey it was reasonable for the high standard of food presented, ideal for a special occasion. The lamb was exceptional and also the chocolate desert. If you want something special to treat your taste buds this is perfect.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!
Beautiful food, we had the 6 course menu and all the food tasted so good. There where lots of things I wouldn't have tried so it was great to have something different, my husband had the wine with his and he said it was just the right amount and all wines where delicious.
This was our second trip to The West House and it defiantly will not be our last. 😋😍 xxxxx
Excellent Michelin starred restaurant with great service and lovely thoughtful touches.
Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome.
Home made butter, delicious home baked bread, home marinated olives, yummy home made chocolates and Madeleines with coffee.
We partook from the delicious, reasonably priced set 3 course lunch. It was tip top and accompanyied by a very fairly priced wine list.
Will definitely be returning and trying the tasting menu when we've more time and head down to Kent again.
Our first visit to The West House to celebrate my wife's birthday. The tasting menu was superb every course beautifully presented and delicious. The service was friendly and the waiter very knowledgable about each dish. We will certainly return and recommend to friends and family.
My partner friend & I visited the restaurant for the first time & were very impressed with all aspects. The service was efficient but not over the top, the food was well presented, very tasty & decent sized portions. We couldn't fault it in any way & will be returning shortly.
