    Although we have eaten in the Coach House 7 or 8 times in the past this is the first time on a Sunday lunch time. The food, service, ambience and everything about the experience has always been first class but this was exceptional. From arrival through to our leaving, everything about our experiences was fantastic. The food as always was exceptional but this was the first time we had had a 'Sunday lunch' and i can honestly say that it was the best we've had in any eating establishment. But also the staff are brilliant - friendly and sociable but also very professional. We really do love the Coach House at Kentisbury Grange.

    A lovely Valentine lunch. The restaurant is well laid out,with lots of space between table's.The staff are excellent, friendly and attentive, and the menu is small but has a good selection. I had a perfectly cooked piece of cod that was amazing. The coffee was not fabulous, but we found everything else excellent. Great for money.Highly recommended

    8 February 2020 was a treat for my wife’s birthday with myself and my son present also...all I can say was that the food was on a different level....hard to describe other than it was “ out of this world”...the service and waiting staff were very friendly and approachable and efficient and they looked after us well...considering the high quality of food on offer the £50 per head for a three course meal was very good value...every mouthful was an experience...well done to everyone involved...??????

    This was our second visit to Kentisbury and I must say it was just as good as we remembered. The food and service was amazing. We had the 8 course taster menu which was superb, highly recommended.

    My husband and I and our 3 children had lunch here yesterday. We had the three course set menu with each course being absolutely delicious. The chef offered child friendly alternatives which went down a treat. The staff were warm and welcoming. Highly recommended.
