Expensive for the quality. Not much choice on the menu. The apple crumble dessert was not hot but the dish on which it was served would burn fingers.

Overall we had a lovely meal there however I requested emergency service discount off our meal which wasn’t honoured. I was told it couldn’t be used on a Saturday but I don’t feel that was acceptable.
I would appreciate some clarification on this please.

I have been to the Herbalist a couple of times and it has always been nice. Unfortunately found the service a bit lacking on this occasion. The restaurant was empty but service was slow and took a while to get our bill especially. I wanted to swap one of my breakfast items (black pudding) for something else (avocado) but was not allowed to. That said the staff were friendly.

It was a really lovely night! It was so busy( as it was New Year’s Eve ) but the two staff members that served us were really nice and we have no complaints. Lovely drinks and pizzas . We look forward to coming again x

We booked for 5 of us on the Friday before Christmas at 5.30pm, there was two tables finishing and a table of two left in the restaurant so not when they were manically busy. After we were finally seated and given menus we had to go and ask for a wine list and to order drinks, after half an hour of no one coming over we went to see if we could order some food. A harassed member of staff briskly took our food offer and said he'd chase up our drinks order which had clearly been forgotten.
The food arrived in a timely manner and was really good, everyone enjoyed all aspects of the food, nicely presented, well seasoned. the menu was interesting and varied. Later during the meal we had a new waiter serving us who was an absolute pleasure, really helpful and advised some excellent cocktails for us to try. If it hadn't been for this gentleman then it would have completely ruined the evening. I would try this restaurant again and just hope that the two really unhelpful members of staff were not working

Took approx 20 mins just to get a soft drink. Starters came out before our drinks. Staff were understandably rushed due to it being close to Christmas but were rude when serving food and when serving desert referred to it as “chocolate brownie or whatever”. Food tasted good and was hot but unfortunately the wait time and the service meant we did not enjoy the meal fully.

Shame we were rudely turfed off our table at 8:20 having reserved the table for 6:30pm and SPECIFICALLY asking on booking if that would happen, as i wondered if that might be the case, and would not have booked our annual Xmas do with you of that had been the case. I was told a note had been put on the system and we would be able to have the table for longer. On the night we were then told we’d have to eat our pudding in the ridiculously crowded and raucous bar... needless to say we cancelled pudding. This is a management issue and a shame because tbh the other aspects of the evening were good. We probably won’t come back as a result and as a group of 9 professional women from all across Kent the story will spread!

After being seated at our table, there was a considerable wait to get a drink...!
Then we were pounced on a couple of times in quick succession to see if we were ready to order food, which we quite clearly weren’t. Then unfortunately there was a long wait to order food once we were ready to order.

Food was served in a timely manner. I had the dick breast with potato fondant and veg. Not bad, although the duck was a bit tough and the fondant was a tad undercooked. The jus that went with the dish lacked a bit of punch, but that may be because I like strong sauces..!

Overall, not bad.

Must say not overly impressed with our experience, waiter did not explain that the starters we ordered would be to much to eat as we would of got away with 1 garlic flatbread, not much choice on the menu and quite overpriced and the chairs are very uncomfortable 😣 all in all not a good visit and don’t think I would visit again

Nice enough atmosphere if not a little loud.
Interesting menu, with good food, some dishes were a little pricey. Some mains were £25+, and based on the portions of other mains, probably aren’t justified.
Seating options seemed more suitable for groups and not couples.


Great looking pizza freshly made!
Great cocktails for good value!!

Warm welcome, immediately impressed with the decor, which totally reflects the name. We realised the dual name was to split the drinking end from the restaurant but it did confuse us at first when we were looking online.the chairs were comfy, table was a good size for our party. The selection of food was varied and we all found something we wanted easily. The service was excellent, numerous, relaxed and helpful. We all enjoyed our food and would love to return soon. We had completed an escape room earlier at The Room which was amazing and our meal completed a perfect evening, thank you 😊

Visited for a birthday meal. First impressions not good as member of staff had an offhand/borderline rude manner on arrival. Our waiter in contrast was very attentive and friendly. Food was excellent but noise levels way too high for conversation. Venue suitable for the younger generation. Will not be returning.

We've been here before, (and had told friends how good it was), so was looking forward to going back for my husbands birthday - unfortunately this visit wasn't great - the service was poor, we ordered a bottle of wine which was delivered to our table together with 2 wine glasses and just dumped on the table - the waitress didn't even open the bottle let alone ask us if we wanted to taste it....... the food was ok - although they got our 'chips' mixed up - it took me several attempts to get someones attention, and then they just took the plates away and chucked the chips from one plate to the other (ungraciously) - if I realised they were just going to do this I wouldn't have bothered to get their attention in the first place, I would have done it ourselves at the table. For £90 (£10 tip for poor service - what can I say I'm English) for 2 people I would have hoped for better.

The Mains were fabulous, staff around when needed , the deserts were not as good as mains though and a few problems with the quality compared to the mains which were cooked perfectly.
Wine was great and really nice atmosphere,a fun evening all round!

Went with friends for a friends birthday. Was greeted with a very unwelcoming/unfriendly stare by the security guard at the door which was very off putting. Thought I'll mention this as it is very important. We were sitted next to the kitchen but we requested to be moved somewhere better and straightaway we were dealt with with a very helpful manner by a member of staff called David. He was very attentive and very friendly. The starter was served really quite quick but the mains, we waited ages for it. Went to Juniper wine bar downstairs after the meal. Wasn't expecting it's going to be a small night club but the ambience was very good and everyone was polite and friendly. It was our first time and will definitely come back again but hopefully that security guard should be given more training to stop giving valued customers filthy looks.

Great food, unfortunately the evening was slightly soured by two guys next to us who were absolutely wasted but the waiting staff apologised to us and they were quickly dealt with. Unfortunately centre of town I imagine that may be quite a common occurrence but hasn't put me off, I would definitely go again.

When we arrived we wasn’t greeted by a member of staff, a gentleman even walked up to the reception desk and proceeded to use the phone and ignore us! finally got seeted but didn’t recieve a very warm welcome, especially considering we were there for a birthday. Fire alarm went off 3 times, no comment from staff, left it going off for minutes at a time, customers talking to eachother wondering what’s going on.
Staff rude when asking for ID, “you don’t even look 18” after asking my 20 year old daughter for her driving licence and bank card quite rudely.
Waited 20 minutes for a drink at 2pm to then be told the drink ordered was unavailable “we don’t have mangos” with no apology or no up selling/reccomedation of a different drink.
Service slow for a quiet afternoon, was a shame because we was recommended by friends and it was for my daughters birthday, took 2 hours to have one drink and a pizza, during the meal we wasn’t asked if we wanted more drinks, which we would’ve ordered more £8 cocktails, birthday also wasn’t commented on by staff (we went to Costa for 10 minutes after lunch and received kinder staff service) and didn’t make the lunch very special. dissapointed as booked the day off work and paid a lot of money to leave feeling unsatisfied. There was no atmosphere even between staff, one of the cooks spent about 10 mins shouting to who I presume was his manager at the front desk, over everybody’s tables. We said goodbye to staff at the door and didn’t recieve a comment back. was going to book a staff party here but shall be looking to go elsewhere, I never leave negative reviews working in the industry myself I understand things happen but at 2pm on a Monday, it is inexcusable bad customer service.

We went to the restaurant for a special occasion with a group over ten. Overall we were satisfied but we're expecting more in service.

The mood and response from staff were sometimes rude and rushed. The staff allocation confused me with staff in a pizza kitchen and staff in a main kitchen. Most of the time because the pizza kitchen wasn't busy the men where just stood there looking out. Little things seems too much hassle, and the lack of understanding of English clearly frustrated the member of staff. The plates were sat there people didnt ask how our meal was or whether we needed sauces.

The food was not amazing but ok, portion sizes varied and were either really too large or too small forgetting certain ingredients.

The design of the restaurant is really really nice but overall staff service training could be improved and then the restaurant could be so much better.
