The staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is to much trouble
The view was wonderful and it did help as on both occasions the sun was shining and we were all able to sit outside
Hopefully l will visit again

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.

    Not a great meal. Superfood salad disappointing, just quinoa with broccoli, tomato and carrot. No dressing at all. My husband had fish and chips. There were 6 chips.

    Went for afternoon tea, sandwiches basic, scones good cakes very unimaginable, felt shop bought really could do better presention must be worked on. Did leave our comments to staff but they shrugged off. So sad because it’s such a special place. Service was excellent except crack and chip in tea pot and why we were not offered a top up for our tea was ridiculous. I have done 20 afternoon teas in various countries and feeling this was local I would have loved to revisit with my guests again but not up to the standards of such a magnificent location. Real pity let’s hope this review again doesn’t fall on deaf ears. As I left a little disheartened but the whole afternoon.

    Food was plain & very bland no taste to the meal at all

    While the food was lovely - best not to question the chef if they cook your steak wrong. I ordered my steak rare and it came out very clearly medium and on it's way to well done. The Chef's response was that was rare and I was advised to order my steak blue. It was recooked blue (although still slightly over done) - which was lovely, I prefer my steaks like this but I'm always hesitant to order blue in a restaurant as they almost never get it right. They also took this off the bill which was very nice of them.

    Had Afternoon Tea with a friend. Food and service both excellent.

    Visited for mid-week afternoon tea. 3 adults, 2 children. Location and amenities all excellent. We couldn't ask for a more pleasant environment in which to spend a few hours.

    STAFF:
    Maybe (hopefully) there were new staff being trained, but our experience on the day was:
    a) This is the only restaurant we've visited in recent years where, after the food was served, absolutely nobody came back to ask if all was OK or if something else was needed.
    b) In order to get anyone's attention (even just to get a glass of water) we always had to first try to catch a staff members eye (they were all very good at avoiding eye contact).
    c) No additional information about the food was offered. The afternoon tea menu listed the sandwich selection, but it would have been nice to know what cakes were in the selection.
    d) Service staff really needed to try to smile at least once in a while.
    Attentive staff is a basic courtesy expected in a restaurant; especially one that is meant to have a good reputation.

    AFTERNOON TEA:
    a) Sandwich selection was OK. Scones were a bit dry, with not enough jam and cream available. Cake selection was good. Overall there were too many sweet items. More savoury would have been better.
    b) No cold drinks available on the adult or the children's menu. It was a HOT day, and we were not even told if cold drinks could be available at extra cost. We made do with hot drinks, but later managed to get some water (only by the glass) by eventually catching a waitresses eye and asking. They didn't even leave a jug of tap water on the table, so you had to ask each time to get a refill.
    c) We had many cakes left over because it was all so filling. For the (quite high) price per head it would have been nice to have been given the option to take them with us.

    For location alone we would recommend the restaurant (but would warn about the possible service shortcomings).
    As a whole the experience was average (score mainly boosted the location). We really expected better!

    The e-mail confirming our booking shows the wrong post code therefore we ended up in the wrong place and finally arrived 30 minutes late and my wife being diabetic suffered a hypo attack
    After finally arrived the hotel staff could not be faulted and the tea was first class would return now we know where the hotel is
