Up-and-down reports on this “characterful” hotel restaurant in the attractive village of Wye, where “the previous Spanish tapas theme has disappeared” to be replaced by a more conventional modern European offering. Decent reports were peppered with gripes – “slightly overpriced…”, “good points but all-in-all disappointing…”. In November 2021, celeb chef Mark Sargeant announced his departure from the business – perhaps it will now find a calmer level?

“The attractive village of Wye is not where you’d expect Spanish food”, but that’s precisely what’s on the cards at Rock Salt chef Mark Sargeant’s “light and airy” hotel-restaurant – in action since 1962, but turning out something “different” (tapas but also a “wonderful breakfast”) since he acquired it in 2016.

“Authentic northern Spanish cooking” featuring tapas and Galician beef has transformed this veteran Kent restaurant (est 1962) under the ownership of Mark Sargeant, of Rock Salt in Folkestone – it’s “reached new heights since the takeover” in 2016.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
