Read's Restaurant


Watling, Swale
15/04/2019: Having been a fairly regular visitor to Read’s a few years back we took a break after a disappointing visit and this was our first trip back in probably 3 years but only served to show that things are not really working
03/04/2019: Booked for a mid-week lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. The restaurant was full, even on a Wednesday, which shows how popular the place is, despite being pricey. But we knew the prices before we went there, Difficult to find fault - the food was first-class and the service superb. Reads is, of course,also a magnificent period building in beautiful suroundings, which adds to the experience. The staff were attentive at all times, as you would expect from this five-star establishment. The only slight issue I had was that when we had drinks in the lounge area while waiting for our table my friend and I (we were both driving) ordered diet Cokes.They were both flat first time, so we asked for replacements, but they were both flat for the second time. We didn't want to make a fuss, which I normally would do, so we put up with Coke with no fizz. Tasted like it had been poured from a bucket kept overnight in the bar. Awful. We were intrigued as to where the waitress might have been getting it from. Certainly not a bottle. Otherwise, it was an extremely memorable, enjoyable experience.

The Red Lion at Badlesmere


Boughton and Courtenay, Swale, <20£
14/04/2019: After reading the many positive reviews we travelled to this wonderful pub with its rustic charm! We were greeted extremely warmly by the landlady Lisa & directed to our table! Menu explanded and fully available including Glutan free! And the food didn't disappoint either very good portion sizes well presented on the plate but most of all cooked to perfection. Will definitely be returning and are already planning to try the Sunday roast & BBQ's in the summer.
02/04/2019: Visited on a Saturday evening with foodie friends from London (with no dietary requirements) and they LOVED the place! The owner/chef has such passion for his creations. And for me, gluten-free eater, it’s simply heaven! Especially the deserts which I where I usually miss out. See that many are now diary free too now, which is a bonus! A chilled out proper country pub with incredible food!

Faversham Kebab House Restaurant


Abbey, Swale
17/04/2019: Great food and plenty of it. The business has been open and family run as long as I can remember. Whether it be a take away or sit down the food and service are always good.
17/04/2019: An impromptu visit after a day in the garden. Quite quiet as it was Tuesday but usual great food and good service Always good here

The Dover Castle Inn


Teynham and Lynsted, Swale
31/03/2019: Great meal for my parents 59 wedding anniversary. Superb food hot great portions loads of extra veg and great selection of beer
31/03/2019: 15 sat down all served efficiently, my starter was a prawn cocktail the plus side is plenty of prawns, the down side was the sauce, insipid I’m afraid no paprika no acidity very bland even after squeezing the lemon over it. The main was fillet, lovely, one ring of tomato and a mushroom, there was a side dish of bitter rocket, hated it, but at the price I would have expected maybe onion rings and a couple of tomato rings and two mushrooms. I never got into conversation with my fellow diners regarding their food but I did observe lots of food being left within our party. We will give it another go but there are several restaurants/ pubs in the area that do a better job going on this visit

Three Horseshoes


Boughton and Courtenay, Swale, <20£
11/04/2019: I have visited 4 times with my family for Sunday roast. It was really good every time lovely atmosphere great food. Fantastic sticky toffee pudding and bread and butter pudding
24/02/2019: Worst I have ever had. The food was served very quickly but it was cold, meat tough and cheese sauce watery. Sweet corn on the plate with a Sunday roast was not traditional or appetising - waste of money

The Plough Inn


East Downs, Swale, <20£
18/04/2019: Wir waren nun zum vierten mal dort! Das erste mal durch Zufall: eine geschmackliche Offenbarung! Danach bei jeder Englandreise ein Muss! Unbedingt die saisonale Karte beachten!
12/04/2019: Phoned ahead, the restaurant could fit us in at short notice at 9pm. So far so good. Ordered a medium rare steak. Came well done and clearly had sat on a hot plate. Bad times. But the team’s response was magnificent: Discrete, professional, engaging. Reduction in bill. So actually they turned a negative into a real positive and we’ll give them another chance. Just not with the steak

Plough & Harrow


Borden, Swale, >100£
14/04/2019: Had a lovely meal here. very tasty with big portions, i took the rest of my moussaka home. Very friendly and helpful staff. I could imagine myself on holiday whilst eating here. Will definitely go again!
13/04/2019: Another birthday (we're a large family) so we set off to Oad Street, a small village on the outskirts of Sittingbourne where you will find the quintessential Olde English pub that, in common with many similar properties, now relies on their food offering to earn a living. But this has been done with a difference. This is a Greek taverna in the English countryside. There is a full menu of Greek specialities (Stifado, Koftedes, Dolmates, Kleftiko, Moussaka etc.) but our party of 6 chose the meze. Cold starters included houmus, taramasalata, pitta, potato salad, tzatziki, beetroot salad and gigantes (beans in tomato sauce) This was followed by warm meats, including loukanika (a spicy sausage) warm ham and halloumi .Next came a fish course, calamari, grilled sardines and prawns. The meat course comprised pork and chicken souvlaki, chicken wings in a spicy coating and lamb kebabs, accompanied by spiced rice and a Greek salad. The meal was rounded off with a selection of the inevitably sweet and sugary Greek pastries and cake. The management and waitresses explained every course and each item as it arrived, and the speed of the service could not be faulted. The management proved that their Trip Advisor ratings are not a flash in the pan and are thoroughly deserved. Be warned, if you are going to try this restaurant, do not eat for about three days prior to arrival. Even our appetites were unable to finish all of the excellent offerings, although the offer of a doggy bag was gratefully accepted. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for people seeking something different from the usual chain pub fare. The only possible criticism is that they rely on a Facebook page for web content, which is not ideal. Even a basic website would be an improvement. I'm sure that they have this in hand, but the food at present comes first, which is the right way to do things. Keep up the good work. Yiamas!

The Saddlers Cafe Diner


Abbey, Swale
10/04/2019: What a great little gem in the centre of Faversham. My wife and myself had a gorgeous meal with lovely drinks. Kirsty and her staff were welcoming , friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend
08/04/2019: We visited in November using a Groupon voucher for a late Sunday lunch and enjoyed it so I bought another to take a friend I rarely see. As you can't use the voucher on Friday or Saturday we could only visit on a Sunday. When I phoned to book the owner told me they were shut that Sunday. I asked about my voucher as it was nearing its expiry date and she said it was no problem. So I then tried to book on another Sunday but was told they were closed again! I explained my voucher would now be out of date but she said they would honour it if Groupon agreed. So I contacted Groupon who said it was at the restaurant's discretion. I sent a copy of the email and tried for a third time but because they weren't accepting vouchers on Mother's Day, this meant an even longer delay so the owner/manager said they would no longer take it. I have therefore lost my voucher despite the fact that they cancelled twice and couldn't honour it in a third Sunday. Worst of all, the lady was rude and unhelpful and went back on her word. Although we enjoyed it when we had previously visited, I would never go back now.

The Dove Inn


Boughton and Courtenay, Swale, >100£
01/04/2019: I booked a table for mothers day lunch with my daughter grandson and mum as a special mothers day treat. We were very disappointed with both the food and the price. We had to choose from a set menu and opted for two courses at £30.50 per head. (There were only two options available for either 2 or 3 courses. The 3 course option was priced at £35.50 per head)
16/02/2019: We had a lovely evening. The menu choice was good, and the quality of the food was very good and well presented. The staff were very good. Lovely atmosphere we will certainly be back.

Eight


Hartlip, Newington and Upchurch, Swale
17/04/2019: Haven’t been here for a long time and really pleased we booked for a catch up with friends. Was nice to be able to just chat away without any grumbles of bad food! Steak night was not disappointing 5/6 had this all said was perfect. One vegetarian opted for risotto & said was good. Restaurant had a nice buzz to it. Waitress attentive and prices very good. Will be back with hubby soon
14/04/2019: What a gem this place is! Heard about the Prosecco brunch is word of mouth so booked it for 4 of us enjoy and ended up having an engagement to celebrate, so it was perfect. The food was great, the service was excellent and the Prosecco kept on flowing without having to ask for top ups. The value for money was outstanding. We have been to several free flow brunches in London and this was up there with the best of them. Maybe better because it was so local. Can’t wait to go back again!
