Welcome to Summer!
The meteorological summer started on 1 June 2021 and, by the looks of it, promises to be a good one! We’ve really enjoyed seeing so many happy faces and contented smiles enjoying a well earned meal away from home.
We are planning a summer special later in June so keeping our fingers crossed the lovely weather stays with us.
Our chefs have been busy creating new ideas and our evening menu is now available. It reflects the season and availability of fresh, local produce wherever possible so last minute changes are always possible.
We are also delighted to be able to offer an amazing selection of Kent wines and as a member of Produced in Kent to support and promote the food, drink and craft businesses of Kent.
At present we need to continue to work under some limited social distancing conditions and Covid mitigation procedures. These include:
Regulated guest arrival – we would ask all our guests to arrive as promptly as possible at the booked time as we need to stagger arrivals;
Temperatures taken of all guests and staff on arrival;
Table service only – bar area closed;
Hand sanitisers will be provided on arrival and on all tables;
All front of house staff will be required to wear a face covering;
Table spacing of 1 metre plus for social distancing;
Anti-bacterial sprays and wipes of all tables after use;
Wipe clean encapsulated menus;
Limited numbers of guests in the restaurant at any one time;
All guests to register contact information for NHS Test and Trace efforts – this information will be held securely by our electronic booking system for 21 days.

Victuals & Company
vit’l,n (commonly in pl.) Articles of food; supplies, or various kinds of provisions
k ō.,n an abbreviation for company – companionship, fellowship, society
Our team create modern, classic and eclectic dishes taking inspiration from British and European food cultures and the best culinary traditions. We make everything ourselves and use fresh, locally produced ingredients wherever possible. Vegetarian, fish and meat options will always be available for both starters and main courses.
We keep our menus simple with a varied à la carte menu on Wednesday to Saturday evenings. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday lunch we offer a fixed price menu. On Sunday evening we ‘Raid the Larder’, our unique concept, where we create a menu for our last service of the week which can be any dish from our current menus or something entirely new, making best use of our stock of ingredients to bring you great value.
Sometimes this means that we are making up dishes on the spot, so it’s best to be flexible as choices can run out early and vary during the evening but they are always top quality and delicious. Due to the nature of ‘Raid the Larder’ the later you come the less choice there will be.
Please always advise us of any specific dietary requirements or intolerances you may have before ordering any of our dishes.
