We had a very nice evening. The crab starter was particularly delicious, as was the chocolate dessert. The service was extremely good.

A luxurious 19th-century manor house hotel, Rowhill Grange near Dartford hosts the sophisticated RG’s Restaurant, winner of 2 AA Rosettes. The more informal Elements Bar & Lounge serves brasserie-style cuisine, while both offer al fresco dining on the garden terrace, also ideal for traditional afternoon tea.

The RG’s Restaurant menu embraces seasonal flavours, with venison loin with pumpkin puree, red cabbage and chocolate, and wild turbot with crab and broad bean risotto amongst its mains. The RG’s grill sizzles with prime sirloin, organic chicken and salmon served with hollandaise.

Big club sandwiches and flavourful salads are trademarks of the Elements menu, along with classic pastas and chunky cod and chips. RG’s is an inviting setting for a fulsome Sunday lunch, where decadent starters and puddings join traditional roasts, or equally tempting fish and vegetarian dishes.

Served in the restaurants or one of the relaxing Rowhill Grange lounges, afternoon tea can be accompanied by strawberries and champagne, with freshly baked cakes straight from the Rowhill Grange pastry chefs. In Wilmington, Rowhill Grange Hotel & Utopia Spa is a 10-minute drive from central Dartford.

    Lovely atmosphere, nice staff, the sandwiches and scones were great. Most of the cakes were nice but we didn't like the watermelon and cream cake.

    My daughter treated me to a champagne afternoon tea - we sat outside on the terrace as it was a fine day. The food was lovely, and the service was excellent. This is a lovely setting for a special occasion.

    The setting and the drinks and food were impeccable.
    The service was slow and inattentive, we had to wait an age for the stands of food to be served and my twin 4 year olds had to wait for part of their first course so long after that- that they became bored and started acting up, therefore we had to leave early before our deserts - which for an afternoon tea - is the main event. I had to go and chase food and find a member of the waiting staff twice.

    Rowhill Grange has always held a special place in my heart and I have childhood memories there, it is heartening to see the gardens and grounds kept so well and the walled garden back as part of the main garden. The house has changed immeasurably but is still the same on the outside.
    I wouldn't recommend going there for afternoon tea to a friend as the service was incredibly poor and slow, though the food that we did have, was wonderful.

    Food was mediocre, service was diabolical!!!
    Afternoon tea for 3 cost me £70 and for that I expect staff to be attentive.
    When the bill came it had £9 discretionary service charge added. I asked for this to be removed as service was awful. no-body asked me why? Was there a problem madam?
    It felt like everything was too much trouble!!!
    Will not recommend to anyone!
    I have emailed them directly but did not receive a response... Just as I expected!!

    Having had tea at Rowhill twice before I was disappointed that this time the tea was so poor there were three of us but the amount of sandwiches were only as many as for two on previous occasions and these were not wonderful when we asked for more we were charged!!!! The cakes were not of the previous times quality and the amount of cream and jam seemed more suited for two people we sat outside the service was at best spasmodic the table not cleared when we finished so no I would not recommend unless they improve the quality of their teas as they have gone downhill over the last year
