We had lunch after taking the wine tour at Chapel Down. The restaurant was very comfortable and welcoming. Quite casual but in a good way. The menu was varied with a good selection. Portions weren't huge but ample. Chicken parfait was light and tasted great. Venison was cooked perfectly. The goats tart got rave reviews as did the beef rump.... More

Visited with my wife, son and his wife. We were there for a birthday celebration and stayed at nearby Tenterden. The food was excellent with the rump beef the best we have tasted for many a year. Service was excellent and the wines as you might expect from a winery!

Our Red Letter Day experience at Chapel Down Winery also provided for lunch at the Swan, sited just above the Winery Shop. The Swan restaurant is tastefully decorated and has stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Staff were welcoming, courteous and friendly. We had a limited menu choice (due to being on the Red Letter Day experience) but this proved... More

Brought my mum for her birthday. She's allergic to garlic and onion and the staff could not have been more helpful and understanding. The food (Hake with samphire for Mum, mushroom risotto for me) was great. The Hake was cooked to perfection and the flavours were some of the best I've had in a while- as good as any London... More

We had the 3 course set menu again, fantastic value and fantastic food. We both had the mackerel starters then i had the beef main course and my wife the fish and we both finished with the chocolate torte. We added the extra cabbage but i did miss the triple cooked chips that were my favourite and are not served... More

Amazing food and great service in one of the nicest settings you could ask for! The team went out of their way to accommodate us after we arrived late the day before missing the lunch and only just making the wine tour! We will definitely come back!

We had lunch here after a wine tasting course which was purchased via red letter days for my husband's 40th. As this was part of a package I wasn't expecting much but oh my goodness, the food was sublime. I had the goats cheese and beetroot, followed by the beef and every mouthful was sheer perfection. The menu choice was... More
