Harden's says

A cute and intimate 16-seat venue near Sissinghurst from a husband-and-wife team who quit their London careers to open their 'dream restaurant' – Toby, who cooks, and Bev, who looks after the guests. Daily Telegraph critic William Sitwell is a fan.

"Almost. Decided to visit a reasonably new venue. It was quite quiet the night we visited (friday) The menu is quite short but most were things I would be delighted to eat. We decided to have different courses to spread the experience. The Amuse bouche was a wonderful summer Gazpacho. Starters were squid (mine) and prawns (friend). Both really nice dishes, the squid for me was my meal highlight. Quite liked my lamb rump but personally not a fan of the minestrone veg. My panna cotta was superb. Front of house was really nice, didn't get much contact with chef. It was a lovely meal, great food almost there. Word of caution Steps down to toilets are very steep and not deep, a bit of a challenge for the less mobile. Non alcoholic cocktails were a little weak for my taste."

What the Newspaper Critics are saying

The Daily Telegraph

William Sitwell made a trip to a village near Sissinghurst in Kent, where a couple who chucked in decent jobs in London have opened their “dream restaurant”. “Toby had wanted to do it ever since his parents had taken him to one at the age of five, and Bev liked the idea ever since Toby mentioned it on their first date.”

It’s a “cute and charming” little place with just 16 seats, “emitting a comely warmth you might get from a Tuscan osteria”. William wanted to smash the chunky, pub-style wine glasses, but pronounced the cooking delightful and confident. “Everything displayed Toby’s ability to knock out steady, reliable dishes, served by the charming Bev.”
