The West House
A Very Special NightWe visited the West House on Saturday evening as we were staying overnight at Leeds Castle, 25 minutes away. We had the tasting menu as it came recommended and were both absolutely delighted with it. Each course was exceptional, my highlight was the duck breast in lapsang duck tea but we both loved the crunchie to finish. The wines were a good match to each course, the service was exceptional and we will certainly return. In terms of value for money I think our meal was exceptional, there is nowhere in London offering this standard of food at these prices.20/04/2013 00:00:00Very good food served to fastThe food was fantastic but served to fast. You receive one course after the other without receiving the time to enjoy the very good food.19/04/2013 00:00:00An extremely pleasant experience,An extremely pleasant experience, with prices comparing favourably with comparable quality in central London. Courses were perfectly spaced and service discreet avoiding being over fussy.19/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic food and serviceI took my partner to The West House for lunch, we had the tasting menu. The food was delicious could not fault one thing the wines were perfect and so was the service, I would really reccomend this restaurant as a must.19/04/2013 00:00:00A lovely eveningThe whole experience was superb. The restaurant is spotlessly clean. The welcome from the staff is warm but not overpowering. Thought had been given to our seating position, we were only two on a table usually set for four diners, but we were positioned so that we could speak to each other comfortably and also see the rest of the restaurant. The food was excellent, I cannot fault anything we ordered. When perusing the menu and wine list the waiter and waitress were well informed and were able to answer our questions knowledgeably.Overall a lovely evening of outstanding food and attention to detail.12/04/2013 00:00:00One of the best meals I haveOne of the best meals I have had. Four excellent dishes and one very good one with perfectly matched wines. A great evening.29/03/2013 00:00:00OutstandingOnce again an outstanding meal.
Possibly the best restraunt in Kent.23/03/2013 00:00:00UnbeatableThe West House provided us with a fantastic lunch. The food was excellent and of a really high quality and the service was personal and attentive. We had a wonderful meal. My herring starter included a smooth and creamy veloute, while the foie gras was the best we had ever tasted. The sea bass was also very good indeed. The West House always provides good food and a delightful ambience.20/03/2013 00:00:00Outstanding - highly recommendedWe booked The West House for a joint celebration (wedding anniversary and mother's day) and we were not disappointed. Everything from the food to the service were perfect. The Waiter was polite and knowledgeable about everything we asked. We were not rushed at all through courses and spent 3 hours relaxing and enjoying all of the four courses we had. The wine list is extensive as is the menu. If you, like I did, looked at the sample menus on The West House website and thought there was not a great deal of choice, don't be put off as this is just one menu! The full menu is also available at lunch time and everything we ate was delicious. We will be booking again very soon and have already recommended to friends and family members.19/03/2013 00:00:00West House surpassed expectationsWe had been intending to visit the West House for a while based on reviews we had seen. West House didn't disappoint and surpassed expectations. Don't expect large portions but what you get is of the highest quality. We would highly recommend this restaurant.16/03/2013 00:00:00A nice time had by allA very nice meal, very good service and helpful, friendly and informative staff16/03/2013 00:00:00Special meal for a special occasionQuiet & understated, the West House is welcoming, with attentive & efficient service. The flavours of the dishes we ate were delicious & very satisfying. The wine recommendation was spot on & it is gratifying to see such an extensive range of wines offered by the glass & also by half litre carafe.08/03/2013 00:00:00Outstanding foodThis is food at its best. Well priced for the standard of culinary excellence. The sausage roll starter was genius. It retained the ethos of a sausage roll but it had a quality and excellence about it that was almost quirky. The pigeon starter had an array of textures and tastes that blended well. Topped of with desert, the milk and honey desert the food and ambience was well worth the indulgence and the £50 return taxi fare to get there!02/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely long lunchWe had a free friday and chose to while away our time in the pleasant atmosphere of west house while enjoying the beautiful dishes we were presented with. I am a little fussy, but found too many things to tempt me! The set lunch menu seemed great value,but we opted for the al la carte. Wonderful staff were helpful but not overly fussy.01/03/2013 00:00:00First visit, not the last!It was our turn to recommend somewhere new to eat with our friends. We found the West House through an Open Table search. My wife's gluten free requirements were catered for without fuss. The service wad excellent as was the food. In all. Our first visit was excellent and will be returning.27/02/2013 00:00:00Amazing foodThe food at the West House was a taste explosion. At £25 for 3 course lunch it was not outrageously priced either.26/02/2013 00:00:00Myself and my girlfriend hadMyself and my girlfriend had a 3 course meal at The West house last Sunday, from start to finish the food and service was fantastic! Not to mention the Camden beer being sold, delicious!
The food is accompanied by beautiful bread and small cheese biscuits between starter and main which were absolutely fantastic! The food was that what befits a restaurant with a Michelin star, Pickled carrot and Scallop, Pigeon and beetroot with Barley and Deserts that were simply divine! The 'Mojito' desert a real highlight of the menu.
The West House is a restaurant I would recommend time and again.17/02/2013 00:00:00Scrumptious foodThis was our third visit but our first dinner. Unbelievable, excellent, scrumptious.Taster menu/wines,took the hassle out of deciding for us had food we probably would not have selected on a normal menu but loved and enjoyed it all the same.The wines selected were spot on and made a difference to the whole taste of the individual dishes.Atmosphere is wonderful with a really relaxed feel to it, not rushed at all. The layout is spacious,they could have put more tables in if they were thinking about profit margins but they haven't which helped with this relaxed feeling.Service is amazing,there was no waiting about but not rushed,service with a smile and plenty of info on the food and wines.Cost is acceptable.We would defiantly go again.09/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent mealWe were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the service we received was top notch. The server was very friendly and attentive and wasn't in our face, which enabled us to enjoy the wonderful food as well as our celebration.
Food was very well cooked and very tasty, and was served at a very good pace to enable us to not feel we were being rushed!29/01/2013 16:00:00Tastebud partyHave been here a few times on special occasions as it is a real treat. We all had the tasting menu and it was lovely, The carefully thought out ingredients worked perfectly together and tasted amazing. Each wine we had really complimented the dish too. The service was excellent and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, i cant wait to go back.09/01/2013 16:00:00The West HouseYear after year, absolutely the finest top class cuisine.18/12/2012 16:00:00Just keeps getting betterWe have visited the West house on quite a few occasions now, we hadn't been for a little while for one reason or another and I have to say i was blown away by the meal this Sunday, I don't know how Graham keeps on improving from absolutely amazing, to sublime but he does, there were more Oohs and Aahs at our table of 4 than I've heard for a long time, the food is just exquisite, I told him it was like being cooked for by angels once, and it's the honest truth, everyone should eat there at least once, mind you, if you do, it won't be just the once!21/10/2012 00:00:00My mother and I had a veryMy mother and I had a very nice Mothers Day lunch at the West House in Biddenden. The menu was a little strange at first sight (Irish Coffee for a starter, which was actually butternut squash soup) but the emphasis is on quality and flavour served in a delightful country cottage. I will go back even though it's quite a journey for me.18/03/2012 00:00:00
