Very disappointed a resturant of this size did not have any milk for tea or coffee and no horseradish to go with the beef.

On a core structure around 500 years old, The Park Gate Inn is a beautiful, old pub, proud of its well-loved menu of British favourites, and proximate to such eye-catching landmarks as Leeds Castle and The Great Water. With rustic wine racks, a brick hearth and art of the landscape, The Park Gate Inn is a charming country pub, with seating by the fireplace and in the al fresco beer garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Park Gate Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Park Gate Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In Kent, The Park Gate Inn is just a 12-minute drive to Maidstone.

    On a very cold morning the restaurant was a bit chilly to begin with but we were seated by a radiator so it soon warmed up.
    Food and wine was fine. As we were meeting friends who we hadn't seen for some months we were very chatty and kept the staff waiting for our order but they were very patient!

    Very, very slow service and difficulty finding staff to order especially coffee etc. soup just warm enough to eat and coffees not hot, chicken dried out and tough ( though they didn't charge us for it in the end) and the room was freezing. Probably won't go back there.

    I was very disappointed with this restaurant. Location was lovely and the actual restaurants was lovely too but the food was very disappointing. Portion sizes were very inconsistent and presentation needs more attention.

  • (**** 13 September 2016 by Peter Boulding from Maidstone

    1 meal served was grossly undercooked and returned to kitchen with alternative meal provided
    My meal duck was not very good quite tasteless. Will not be returning to Park Gate Inn.

    Waited 20 mins before order taken, waited a total of 55 mins before food arrived, having been told at least 4 items were not available, two from mains.
    Food was very average, no further ratings to be given
