Group vouchers have now sold out, however, one-person vouchers are still available. Please note group sizes over six can't be accommodated.

The Deal

Travelzoo members can expect an "excellent" dining experience (The Daily Telegraph) as we team up with the 3-AA-Rosette Thackeray's for our upcoming exclusive member event. For £79, this one-off event will include a tasting-menu dinner with paired wines and extras.

What's Included

  • A 6-course tasting-menu dinner for one with paired wines, followed by coffee and petits fours
  • We have also negotiated group vouchers -- it's £300 for four, £375 for five or £750 for 10 (please note purchases must be made for the entire group size )
  • Valid for the Travelzoo-exclusive member event at Thackeray's on Thursday, 12 October. Dinner will be served 7:30-11pm. Please arrive at 7pm for a 7:30pm start

Why We Love It

  • This event will be hosted on one date only in October, giving Travelzoo members the unique opportunity to feast on a specially designed tasting menu featuring locally sourced Kentish produce, while sipping on some of the region's best wines
  • Wine-industry expert Jonny Gibson will be the guest speaker on the evening -- with 30 years of experience, he has worked for the likes of Moët & Chandon and has judged several wine events, as well as establishing the Sussex Wine School in 2012; there will be an introductory talk about English wines before the meal, as well as insight into the wine-making process, the vintages and the wine pairings* between courses
  • The AA Restaurant Guide 2017 awards the venue three Rosettes -- an award reserved for "outstanding" restaurants achieving "standards that demand national recognition" -- while praising the "seriously appealing dishes" and "sound culinary judgement"
  • The venue has been awarded a Michelin Plate for good cooking by The Michelin Guide 2017
  • Thackeray's, "a pretty white clapboard house on the green" (The Daily Telegraph), was once the residence of Victorian novelist William Makepeace Thackeray

I had to prompt to get two glasses of Champs and pointed out that sfteafter 20 mins in a quiet restaurant we should have been visited at the table to point chap absence out. Two delivered drank my health but I couldn't. No apology and edited another 15 mins before order taken. Food great but service spoilt it

We did feel the food was a bit rushed. Hardly had we finished one course before the next one arrived. Could do without background music, it is always difficult having to listen to someone else's choice.

Quality of the food and individuality of the restaurant in a world of chains and sameness.

Other Comments
The service charge is a bit naughty at 12.5% of the gross total before deducting the Travelzoo discount but the staff are worth it.

The wine list is very good and attention to table setting also excellent. Unfortunately these are merely window dressing.
Other Comments
The service was overpowering and invasive, the food was nothing more than average and in places quite lazy. The atmosphere is quite hectic rather than relaxed and it wasn't even that busy when we went
