Was looking forward to a breakfast as have been before and was impressed, but this time I was not, the breakfast had gone downhill, I hope this was a one off!

We found this place on the way to our hotel. Food was amazing, staff very friendly and attentive. Price a little bit steep, but you pay the price for nice food. If we go back to maidstone, we will definitely visit again.
