    A wonderful pre-Christmas treat we had afternoon tea - delicious sandwiches and delightful cakes and pasties. A lovely atmosphere where we were made to feel special. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive - and we even got a 'Hi' from Mr Askew himself.

    Exquisite from start to finish. We had the vegetarian tasting menu this time and it was absolutely divine. Full of beautiful little touches and delicious flavor combinations.

    Service is so professional and lovely to look at but also so friendly and welcoming. You feel the whole experience is going to be wonderful as you walk through the door. Then you get the food and it is bliss on a plate, it's like eating a dream! Love the rose too.The atrium is beautiful. I do recommend you to all my friends. Paul Askew you have the most wonderful vision and you have the skill, patience and humanity to bring it off. I would love to eat the menu that was prepared for Celebrity Masterchef at Hever Castle - Paul please can you make this dream come true?

    We had fairly high expectations from the outset but are pleased to say these were surpassed in almost every sense. The food was the festive taster menu which was a triumph, with the goose breast and venison dishes both particularly memorable. The front of house service was faultless, the Sommelier was full of fabulous knowledge and knew much more then just what he was selling. The staff in the down stairs bar truly believed in the restaurant and its values and what the owner is trying to accomplish. Plus they also made probably the best Old Fashioned I've ever been fortunate enough to drink.

    First visit and it was excellent in every respect. The photos on the internet does not do credit to the restaurant. The food was excellent. I did choose fish for my starter and main and it superbly cooked and presented. My outstanding item was the citrus Creme brûlée. The service was excellent, efficient and discrete. Icing on the evening was when Paul Askew took the trouble to come and speak to us even though he was busy in the kitchen. Coffee in the downstairs room was a revelation. Can’t wait to return.

    I love the Art School and was keen to try the afternoon tea but felt portions were small and tables in bar area not really suited to eating, even with an extra table tagged on it was cramped and not easy to reach the food. So I wouldn’t recommend afternoon tea there.

    Warm greeting despite going to the wrong entrance. I really liked the side by side seating . The coronation chicken without the chicken sandwiches were fantastic. The little cakes seriously delicious. I didn’t like the tea blend - I like my tea dark and strong so I ordered breakfast tea - it had rooibosch tea in it which made for an interesting vanilla finish but as I said I like my tea dark and strong ! Overall a relaxed afternoon tea.

    Fabulous food as usual - unique dishes served with panache by the very dedicated service team. Will keep coming back. Beautiful vegetarian option.
