This converted Flemish weavers' cottage in a quaint Kentish village is run by husband and wife team Graham and Jackie Garrett. He, the Richard Corrigan-trained chef, cooks while she takes care of the intimate wood-beamed 32 seat dining room. For the most part, the regularly changing menu relies on classic combinations of locally sourced ingredients given an imaginative twist. Rye bay scallops with cauliflower cream and curry emulsion or Kentish lamb chump, pea and mint mousse with sea purslane illustrate the approach. But be prepared for more left of field ideas such as roast pigeon, maple syrup chicory, foie gras and coffee essence. The predominately French wine list is thoughtfully chosen and reasonably priced.

I've been looking forward to eating here and booked for our anniversary. We were met by a very polite waiter and offered the choice of tables to sit. The venue is lovely beautifully restored and very relaxing. Now to the food. Wow, I can honestly say that I've never experienced food that not only tastes amazing, but each course looks like a work of art. The mackerel starter was the most amazing starter I've ever had and I didn't want the meal to end. The lamb we had for our main was again absolutely awesome and beautifully presented. My choice...

I visited the West House for my 40th birthday with my husband. The food was fantastic - the olives were some of the best I have ever had, we wanted to take a jar of the "pork butter" home with us and we were both really happy with all of our food. But what made the experience special was the service which was friendly, unassuming and thoughtful. Thank you to the West House team for a delightful experience and a great memory.

My wife and I attended the restaurant and had the Tasting Menu (one with paired with wine and one without due to me driving!). The food was ample and wine pairing was also good. The team were friendly and entire experience memorable. We would have no hesitation recommending the restaurant and will return again in the future.

We were a table of 4 couples and had a very enjoyable evening at the West House with the food and atmosphere both perfect. Each course was beautifully presented and the only difficulty was knowing what to choose - everything looked beautiful and tasted delicious. Service was unobtrusive contributing to a very relaxed ambience not always found with similar fine dining experiences. Hope to be back soon.

A lunch visit, our first here. Very good service throughout, for mains my wife had the fish which she enjoyed very much, and I had the lamb both excellent - another slice of lamb would have been good though. The bread and olives on arrival were superb however and the starters excellent but the real winner was the deserts - wonderful. Will return.

Lucky to get a last minute booking today. Somebody else had cancelled. Their loss, my gain ! I have to say, I had passed this place many times and been unsuccessful in previously getting a reservation. My wife & I had the tasting menu, and I have to say, it was just that, wonderful tastes in six courses. There was not a bad course amongst them. Delicious ! House (glass) of Champagne was very good. A finely balanced meal, with beautiful flavours. I look forward to returning ! (& it is literally only 5 minutes away for me!) Bravo Graham & te...

This was our finest meal out for some time. Started with a lovely complimentary course; sourdough & homemade butter was excellent. We both had haddock starters and turbot mains, all very good. One chocolate dessert and one mango were sublime. The natural red wine was robust, just wonderful. Service was first class.

The food was delicious, only one course was slightly too salty for my tastes but it got better as the courses passed, although the home made bread was sensational. Each course was beautifully presented and exquisitely flavoured Staff were reasonably attentive and left the right amount of time between courses. The chicken was absolutely superb, so moist. The desserts were an absolute highlight. Toilets very clean, well worth the 120 mile round trip
