Disappointed all around! Visited on 2 occasions this past weekend while attending a festival. First experience was for lunch. Although wait staff was friendly, the service was extremely poor and food mediocre! My water glass was never refilled and served in a tiny bar glass....More

Years since we last tried this. Excellent food including the pumpkin soup, vegan entree, beets, and duck flambé. The wine list is extensive and very reasonably priced. The service was excellent. We will return soon.

My wife and I were visiting Kent with our daughter and had dinner at the Fife 'n Drum. The food was absolutely excellent and the restaurant has heaps of charm.

Excellent food and service!! It was a buffet. A little pricey, but very good food and coffee! Egg frittata, sausage, croissants, yogurt, granola, fruit cup and fresh yogurt we're on the menu the morning we stopped in!!

We had lunch here today on our leaf peeping Saturday. We ordered bloody Mary's and the Gorgonzola figs to start. Both were very good. For entrees we had a Ruben--good and a crab salad--lackluster with just crab on top of watercress.

Beautifully accented restaurant with sparkling attention to detail. The table side duck flambé was excellent and the shrimp and grits were truly some of the best I've ever had. We dined on a Friday evening and had a table near the two amazing musicians who...More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Reviews on TA were good. My wife ordered a cannelloni with butternut squash with a Boursin mornay sauce. It was inedible. Uncooked large pieces of squash wrapped in a tough wrapper that could not be cut that was over...More
