Sherlocks has been on my list of places to visit since I moved in to the area a couple of years ago, so I've been waiting on that special occasion to occur to give me a reason to visit, as its not the cheapest place around. Recent events have given us good cause to go out and celebrate a new... More

We had high expectations when we visited Sherlocks for the first time last Saturday as the reviews were very positive. We were celebrating a family birthday, with 6 adults and our 2 young granddaughters. We chose an early meal time of 7pm as we knew the children would get tired with a later time. When we arrived we were the... More

In relation to your specific points: - We welcome children to the restaurant, but good food takes time to prepare and we do not consider the time you spent in the restaurant, one and... More

Excellent little family run restaurant. The menu is varied with plenty of choice, service is great and not rushed. They genuinely want you to enjoy your food and evening. Quirky interior adds to the atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

Took friends to Sherlocks for the first time and they like us loved it. Quirky in a lovely way as was an old post office and still has many original features and has this homely feel to it. The food is wonderful and cooked to order, Joan who is the chef always spends time with her customers for a chat... More

Friends and I only visit Aylesford twice a year, and always have a meal here. We are welcomed as old friends by Joan David and Alan. It really is a joy to eat here. Each dish is prepared to order. The quality of the ingredients; the care and skill that goes into each plate is plain to see. I have... More

I was disgusted with the remarks made by kentkop. Obviously one who prefers to write like this rather than complain to the chef himself. My husband is fussy about his steak and has never had to complain once. I am disabled and we took another disabled person with us and we were made so welcome. Joan does not deal in... More
