Lovely evening with friends. Had the chilli & it was great. They have a selection of specials. All reasonably priced. For a place to eat in West Malling it is friendly and food is good value for money.

We visited with high hopes after reading the reviews and we were left feeling disappointed. There really wasn’t room for us to be at the table they had squeezed into a walkway. The food was pretty average, olives tasted like ones out of a jar,...More
