  • - Amuse-bouches
  • - Parma ham, chicken parfait and creamed porcini mushrooms with red wine reduction
  • - Pan-fried diver-caught scallops with roast Kentish apple fondants, creamed chestnuts and marinated mushrooms, or roulade of organic sea trout rillette with new season beetroot and horseradish mousse
  • - Sorbet
  • - Roast fillet of 28-day hung Herefordshire beef with black truffle creamed potatoes, or baked wild seabass fillet with parsnip and vanilla purée
  • - Cheese from the northern Provence

  • Richard Phillips, who trained at London's famous Savoy Hotel as well as the Roux brothers at Le Gavroche, before becoming a head chef for Marco Pierre White, has gained praise for growing Thackeray's into one of the best restaurants in Kent over the last decade.
  • Thackeray's was crowned Kent's Best Gourmet Restaurant in 2009. The Independent on Sunday has described it as "one of the most charming and stimulating restaurants outside London", while The Observer praises its "culinary excellence".
  • Richard is a familiar face on top foodie TV shows, such as "Ready, Steady, Cook" and "Saturday Kitchen", and is a regular on ITV's "Lorraine".
  • When we visited, we were impressed by the beautifully presented dishes, attentive service and the building's 18th-century character.

The ease of booking. The warm welcome of the staff. Staffs are very considerate. The lamb dish is extremely nice. The manager is extremely welcoming.

The bread was cold, but was served several times during the meal. The floor is not flat, but that does not affect the experience. The portion is certainly what one would expect for standard michelin restaurants.
