The Yew Tree Inn


Boxley, Maidstone
17/12/2018: A group of four couples, we met in early December for lunch and we were NOT disappointed. We were offered a good choice of dishes, including vegetarian, good news for one of the party.
13/12/2018: We have been meaning to try The Yew Tree for a long time, and at last we made it!

La Taberna


High Street, Maidstone
05/12/2018: We visited on a Tuesday evening to celebrate my husbands birthday. I had precooked but I don’t think I needed to as there was only 4 occupied tables.
28/11/2018: I have been coming to the La Taberna in-frequently since it opened on Union Street. The staff have always been very friendly and I think it’s great that it’s family run and independent.

Narai Thai Palace


High Street, Maidstone
15/12/2018: Lovely lunchtime menu. Food was delicious, well presented and well priced. Will definately be going back to try some of the other dishes
12/12/2018: Visited on 10/12 Monday evening around 8oclock. Can’t fault the food. It’s always excellent but we experienced very poor front of service. The lady seemed to be the in charge of front of house made us feel very unwelcome and wore very rudely shown our table. Rushed to take the food order even I clearly said we need more time and not ready.most annoying thing was we were asked to put down the order number in the pad for her. There was other young lady who was very pleasant and took care of our drinks and looked after us but our evening was spoilt because of the other waitress . Service with a smile will go well with their delicious food!!!

The George Inn


Leeds, Maidstone
17/12/2018: We walked here from Leeds castle(20-30 mins)
09/12/2018: Visited The George during Friday lunchtime a couple of weeks ago. On arrival we weren't sure wether they could fit us in as it was fairly busy and we hadn't booked, but luckily there wasn't a problem and we were swiftly shown to our table after getting our drinks at the bar.

Frederic Cafe Bistro


High Street, Maidstone, <20£
14/12/2018: I was keen to try this place, as it is a "real" rather than chain restaurant, attended Christmas lunch with colleagues. Beautiful hake main course and cannot fault the French cheese platter, but....
13/12/2018: Popped in with my daughter to try the cheese and wine. Great selection of French cheeses and vast selection of wines. I left the wine selection to the owner and his choice perfectly complimented the cheeses. Very relaxed and enjoyable lunchtime experience. Great service as usual. Roll on next visit!!

The Blacksmiths Arms at Wormshill


North Downs, Maidstone
09/12/2018: We came from Suffolk to Kent for the weekend to visit friends (sons gf parents) so this was a late notice choice booked blind - the sat nav appears to have taken us through the country lanes ‘sleepy hollow style’ but the pub is well situated on the road with good parking and reasonably quiet. Entering takes you back centuries, hops on the beams, wood burner and antiques bric-à-brac hanging abound - some quirky pieces all labelled and priced we think for sale, clocks, porcelains, pictures. The menu has some great choices and specials ‘good wholesome food’ slow cooked lamb, brisket , fish, pork etc all served hot and with accompanying trays of properly cooked vegetables.
27/10/2018: Very large (too large in fact) portions of wholesome home cooked food but nothing extra special. The staff were "entertainingly inefficient". Overall rather pricey for an 'adequate' rather than special evening out.

Mu Mu


East, Maidstone, 20-30£
17/12/2018: Booked this for 30 work colleagues. Sineal the event organiser was incredibly helpful through the year and on the night we had a great time. The venue is basically split into three main parts; restaurant, a few different bars and a nightclub/dance room. The food was £30 P/P and the quality of the three courses was the best my team have ever had. The bars are great and very arty. I think there's different themes in the different bars and the club was a great laugh. My only moan is they don't sell Guinness!! But a few of my friends bought cocktail trees which they said were fantastic and well priced. A great all-in-one night out and an equal number of girls and boys which is better. Thank you.
14/12/2018: I took my staff here for our Christmas party and what a brilliant Idea on my behalf! The staff were incredible from start to finish they couldn't do enough for us. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and trust me it was the best Christmas dinner I have ever tasted (sorry Mum). Venus is brilliant and I could not fault anything about Mu Mu. Fantastic!!!

Artemis


East, Maidstone
17/12/2018: From the outside you'd be forgiven for thinking this was closed or very rough around the edges however nothing could be further from the truth. The portions are very generous, the food clearly fresh and home made with love and the prices were so cheap compared to the chains. Value for money is spot on. Will be going back very soon.
24/11/2018: I Had a Fry up was nice but very oily. My friend had the same. Hot drinks were warm but not hot. Very nice atmosphere and staff were very friendly.

The Kings Arms


Boxley, Maidstone, <20£
15/12/2018: Six of us enjoyed meals at The Kings Arms, as we have several times before. All our meals were excellent, including food for one of our party who needs gluten free menu. Staff very welcoming. Lovely old country pub. Will return.
06/12/2018: It was one of those days when (sadly) we just wanted a light lunch and to filled baguettes (plus a bowl of chips) were just the ticket. A very good crisp baguettes - plenty of meat within and a very decent quality of salad to go with it. Friendly staff and all served in a quaint old building with the parish church on the other side of the road. will detinitely be back

The Pepper Box Inn


Headcorn, Maidstone
15/12/2018: We met with friends for a lovely lunch. I had belly pork which was succulent and tender. I would have given five stars but my wife’s duck lacked flavour and was a bit tough. Our friends meals were excellent so all in all a very nice lunch in a lovely, atmospheric venue.
13/12/2018: What a shame really enjoy visiting this pub for celebrating special occasions. The fish special was flavourless, the chilli con carne had no bite to it, the steak was grisly and our cod and chips were flavourless too. A rather disappointing set of meals this time.

The Mulberry Tree


Boughton Monchelsea and Chart Sutton, Maidstone
15/12/2018: We visited the restaurant with our friends for a Michael Buble Tribute evening and three course meal on 13th December. There was a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service very welcoming and friendly. We were very impressed by Jason Allen Sway's excellent performance. We had a great time and would definitely visit again.
09/12/2018: Just had a meal here for the first time after it was recommended by a relative. The parking area was good but not wheelchair friendly if that is needed. The toilets were clean and easily found just inside the front door. The bar and restaurant area was warm and friendly looking. The glasses used for drinks at the bar were first class quality but fortunately cider is only sold in pints which as a driver was a shame for this day and age. The food was excellent and nicely served. The tap water we ordered came in a lovely old looking bottle which added to the meal. The only thing we found off putting was when after agreeing pay a service charge they tried to put on just under 40% charge instead of the usual 10% which we thought was too much and certainly more than we wanted to give. While I would certainly give the restaurant 100% for the food and service asking so much for a voluntary service charge spoilt the experience for us.

The Fox & Goose


Boxley, Maidstone
26/11/2018: We visited the Fox and Goose for Sunday lunch and what a treat.
25/11/2018: Wow wow wow - This was our first visit and the food and service was exceptional. The roast beef was so tender and full of flavour, the roast potatoes were crispy and fluffy inside just perfect. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and the cauliflower cheese was so delicious that we ordered another portion. To top it all the Yorkshire puddings were the best ever. We've never been anywhere where they have been freshly cooked and hot out of the oven but these were. Portion sizes are generous and excellent value for money. Moving on with the desserts the selection was excellent and we were spoilt for choice. We decided to try the homemade mango cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding and they were just amazing. We will definitely be going back - it's a little gem just outside Maidstone town centre which has a warm and friendly atmosphere and serves outstanding food.

Vesuvius


High Street, Maidstone, >100£
15/11/2018: This restaurant is not sited in the main part of Maidstone and although I have driven past it many times it does not stand out.
07/11/2018: Is not a chain, so you can go easily and enjoy everything, from a huge menu of delicious options. Authentically managed by Italian people, from Naples, you find quit difficult take a decision about what to eat. From the starts, the pizza selection, see food, pasta, …
