    Service was first class. The meal looked fabulousand tasted ok, but could have been a lot warmer. Overall I'd give a 7 out of ten. The Stilton and fruit cake for dessert was great. Good flavoursome Stilton.

    I was expecting great food and I was not disappointed. Highly recommended, I will be returning very soon. Kind regards.

    Food was very nice but charging £3 or whatever for each veg dish was too much. It meant I didn't have the range of veg I would have liked. The lady who served us was excellent. Service in general was good. Location nice. I had a Sunday roast the following day in a pub in Folkestone where I had a selection of veg with the meat and the whole dish cost £15. I felt the hotel (MPW) was trying to shoot above their grade. The beef I had was nice but wasn't £25 worth. PS I eat out a lot at many different levels of restaurant including Michelin-rated so I see all prices and qualities.

    This was the 2nd time we had visited the restaurant. The 1st time we ordered from the al a carte menu which was amazing, however this time we had the Valentine’s Day set menu and it was very underwhelming. The scallops had run out for my wife’s starter, which wasn’t an issue but the smoked salmon she had instead came with a slice of bread which was clearly straight out of a cheap supermarket loaf. Where was the nice homemade warm roll she expected?? The broth did not come with any bread or roll and in fact there was a charge if you wanted any whichi found incredible. The Chateaubriand steak for main course was cooked exactly as requested but considering there was an £8 surcharge each it was not enough for 2 adults and was served on 3 enormous plates that didn’t fit on our table. I had the cheese board for dessert which was disappointing as it featured cheese and biscuits that I could have bought in my local supermarket. Whilst I appreciate ordering from the Set menu may not be as nice as the a la carte menu, we found the whole occasion to be considerably underwhelming and disappointing.
