Description: Lakes is the restaurant of Hempstead House, a small family-owned country house hotel between Sittingbourne and Faversham in the glorious Kent countryside. It dates back to 1850 but Lakes restaurant was added in 1998, quickly winning awards from the AA, the RAC and the English Tourist Board. Its crystal chandeliers, fine china and cut glass provide an elegant backdrop to the interpretation of classical English and French dishes: fresh fish and meat is locally-sourced and fruit and veg come down from Covent Garden each day.

Visited here boxing day for a three course dinner, which was booked in advance and paid for as menus were set by email to us.
We arrived and had a drink in the bar before being seen through to our table. We didn’t realise for drinks we would have to go up to the bar we thought it would be table service so we did have to go back to the bar for more drinks. The table was set up very nice with crackers, poppers & balloons. The service was quick and the food started to come out. The beef main was very chewy unfortunately but the chicken was perfect. One of our relatives became unwell I cannot thank the staff enough they were very caring & made sure she was ok. Great atmosphere, would recommend.

The restaurant has a clasic decor and the service and the food are very good. Situated in Hempsted House Hotel and Spa. A great option in the Sittingbourne area.

Decent dining within the hotel, staff are very helpful & friendly & food well cooked & presented, though I was disappointed there was no local fish/shellfish, this being one of the best areas for sea critters
