Food was good, just a shame about the service speed. 45 mins between courses at points. Far too long and not enough staff to cater on a busier night. Also a very limited menu that doesn't match what is on the website. Absolutely nothing for...More

My wife and I had enjoyed a very pleasant lunch here. We had 3 courses from the set menu. We started with goats cheese pannacotta and chicken and turbot for the main courses followed by 2 excellent deserts. The turbot was the star for me...More

I apologize you were unhappy with your visit, we do try our best to cater for all dietary requirements, it seems this time the choices on offer were just not to your taste. I will pass on your comments about the food to the kitchen.

Hi. What is the most direct & easiest route to the island from the UK (Gatwick, Heathrow or Stanstead airports?)

From London you will want the M25, then the M20 Dover bound or M2 Coastbound, but to be honest you will drive past plenty of places that are better value and with better customer service

Description
We hope you're feeling hungry... Look forward to robust, fresh flavors served with imagination and flair in east Kent's newest contemporary restaurant. Our Head Chef presides over heavenly menus that change regularly and use locally caught fish and locally sourced produce. The wine, beer and drinks list is also top notch. Old school... New World... Kent wines from Kent vineyards... Local real ales... Great taste is everything at the Marquis.
