Sage & Brooke


Queen Eleanor and Buccleuch, Kettering
14/04/2019: First visit today with my husband and two friends. Lovely place with a really good, friendly atmosphere. The service was excellent - cheerful and friendly but professional. Our starters included black pudding with deep fried poached egg which were cooked perfectly with a runny yolk, and smoked trout which was also really good. We all had the leg of lamb for our main course which came with a variety of vegetables, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and cauliflower cheese. We just about managed desserts - apple crumble, white chocolate cheese cake and pineapple upside down cake. One of the best Sunday lunches I've had for ages. The meal was excellent value at £20 for three courses. We had a lovely afternoon and we look forward to the next visit.
11/04/2019: Meal for four on pie night (Wednesday) spoilt for choice wanted everything on the both pie and normal menus !

Tollemarche Arms


Slade, Kettering
16/04/2019: Busy village pub with great service and a range of products that you would expect in a city not a quiet village
14/04/2019: English country pub and restaurant at it's best , lots of character. Pleasant ,friendly staff and quick service. Food was well cooked. I really enjoyed the " Tolly " burger and it's possibly the best burger I have ever tasted. My friend, who is not vegetarian, liked the sound of the mushroom ricotta dish so much that she decided to try it and said it was lovely. Her husband really enjoyed the Lamb madras and my wife loved her plaice fillets. They make the boast that they are " the perfect country pub" and on this showing it would be hard to argue. Definately recommend .

The Palmichael


Burton Latimer, Kettering
16/04/2019: Fancied something a little bit different from the usual pub lunch. Tried The Palmichael and was very pleased with our choice. Smallish restaurant with very attentive and friendly staff. The food was probably the most delicious I have tasted for a while. Lunch menu is reasonably priced £11.95 for 2 courses and £14.95 for 3. Serves lovely Italian beers and wines and a good selection of soft drinks as well. Would definitely return again.
14/04/2019: Moved to the area recently and chose this nearby restaurant for my wife's birthday meal based on the excellent reviews I read here on Trip Advisor. The restaurant itself is a charming venue, quite small and easy to miss from the road (as I did). Parking is a little awkward especially if you have mobility restrictions. The welcome we received from the staff was lovely: friendly and attentive to our needs as soon as we entered the building. The standard of service throughout the evening was excellent, as was the food. I had king prawns for starters and lasagne for my main course.

The Raj


All Saints, Kettering, <20£
12/04/2019: I celebrated my 50th Birthday with my friends and family at The Raj. This has always been my favourite restaurant in Kettering because the food is prepared with such care and is full of flavour. The service is excellent and the staff are always professional and very welcoming. This was my mum’s birthday treat for me and my friends and I was so happy that everyone enjoyed their evening. After our delicious meal we went upstairs to the Cocktail Lounge where everyone in my party were able to toast my special day with beautifully made cocktails. It was fab! Thank you to the staff of The Raj for making my birthday such a success.
11/04/2019: From booking for a special celebration to calling in on a night off, this is our go to place! Tonight’s food & service was fantastic! Thanks to GAZ & team!😁🥂🍽

The Star Inn


Queen Eleanor and Buccleuch, Kettering
16/04/2019: We popped in one lunchtime. When we arrived we were the only people in the pub but were made to feel welcome. We took a look at the menu and decided to go for the light bites, which included a main meal and sweet, which were good value. It has been many years since my last visit. We will be visiting again as we enjoyed it very much.
30/03/2019: Great food, great service, go the extra mile for you, great bar selection, definitely recommend really fab place

Toro Steakhouse


Rothwell, Kettering
07/04/2019: Arrived on time and we were seated quickly with drinks ordered , then there seemed quite a long wait before we were asked for our order. I think there may have been some kitchen issues as I see another reviewer had a similar comment on the same night.
30/03/2019: Had a lovely evening. Mother Day meal with my son and his girlfriend.

Thai Garden


Rothwell, Kettering
23/03/2019: Booked a table for 13 people with a pram over a month in advance, we cancelled on the day of the booking. This was due to constant incoming calls from the restaurant on the day to try and change our time slot. As we could not do this they then rang again telling us we had to be gone by 8:30,our table was booked at 7. I don't understand how they expect a table of 13 to have ordered, eaten and have had a good time in an hour and a half. After that conversation came another one about how they do not accept prams in the restaurant!? Bearing in mind when we first booked they accepted the fact we had a pram and accomadated that we could sit at the front of the restaurant as there were steps at the back of the restaurant. So in the conversation about the pram on the day, they pretty much called us liars as they said we had never informed them of a pram. These calls ended when we finally told them we didn't want the table any longer, and to them, by their reaction, they simply did not care about the fact they just had a table of 13 cancel 6 hours before the booking. The only one good thing about the restaurant was that we didn't need to pay a deposit so no money lost.... Except for them. Not only did they lose out on a big table, or money, they lost out on 13 customers. I know that I cannot speak about the food or interior of the restaurant but I can say that to treat customers that way before even arriving (I understand even then it is not acceptable once arrived) is disgusting.
19/03/2019: This is our local restaurant and visit fairly often, We are always given a warm welcome. I have never visited to find it has empty tables, as it is always busy, booking is advisable. Menu is varied although I personally like the drunken Prawns and the Flambé Chicken and always have a starter of crispy duck. It is very clean and the staff are excellent and vert helpful. I have enjoyed every meal we have had there, I found price wise it is mid to expensive. Thoroughly recommended.

The Exotic Dining


All Saints, Kettering
17/04/2019: staff and food is simply wonderful. I am very particular when it comes to paying for Indian food. They have never disappointed me. I have been there with over 20 people and i have eaten there with just the 2 of us. On every occasion they exceeded my expectation. Tell them how you like things cooked and they will listen to you. Most other restaurants don't really listen to what the customer wants, most would say "sorry but our sauces and spices are prepared in advanced and they cant change it" . This restaurant stands out for this and a multitude of other reasons. You will not be disappointed.
14/04/2019: Visited here for the first time ,as soon as we walked into restaurant we were greeted by a friendly waiter who showed us to out table and asked if he could get us some drinks

Restaurant At Rushton Hall Hotel


Welland, Kettering
29/03/2019: Visiting here is always pure escapism, from arrival the whole experience shouts luxury.
24/03/2019: On 15th March my very good friend and I were 65. I phoned to book a table in the brasserie as it was described as being horsey and my friend loves horses. The charming lady on the phone asked me if it was a special occasion for oyr visit and I told her it was our 65th birthday. She said ' oh, I will make a note of that against your booking'. The venue is amazing to drive up to and the bar and drinks lovely. We eventually went in to dinner after waiting to be called to our table but no one called us so my husband had to adk what was happening. There was absolutely no atmosphere. The waiters were efficient but very detached, just going through the motions. Nothing was mentioned about our birthdays. My husband told a waiter but it was just ignored. As it was a special birthday, i expected something more like the George at Stamford. I felt shoved in and shoved out again. I wouldnt eat there again I'm sorry to say. The food was average.

20/01/2019: Always a good place to go for breakfast with my young daughter. Food is well cooked and present. The price is competitive and there’s a few books for the little one to read whilst the food is being cooked. Well worth a visit.

Lee Garden


William Knibb, Kettering, >100£
15/08/2016: I thought I would try the sunday lunch buffet, 30 dishes available.. food was ok, prawn dish was bland, so won't have that again. I ordered a glass of cider, I asked was it draught, the waiter told me it was out of can, when it came it was in a bottle, no problem with that, but waiter lacked knowledge of drinks. incidentally , waiter walked pass my empty glass three times, never asking me if I wanted any more drinks, so not a good sales man I think.. I had to ask for cutlery, as there was none on the table. cutlery was of cheap quality, and almost bent as I tried to use it.. Décor was nice, although let down by large cobwebs in the corner of room.. I wouldn't say i'de never go back. but I wouldn't rush back..
02/01/2016: Eleven of us, including friends visiting from Tazmania, decided to celebrate our New Year at Lee Garden, and we were not disappointed. We arrrived at 7,30 and left at 12.30 am and were extremely well looked after for the whole evening. The food was excellent, and there was plenty of it. The place was busy and clearly very popular. Our courses were well spaced to fill the evening, but not so much as we felt neglected. The service was very friendly and attentive and we celebrated the arrival of the new year with poppers and champagne etc. Due to the fact that many of us live in different parts of the country/different countries - we had not been here for years. But it was as good as we remembered and we were very impressed.
