    Wonderful evening. The best view of the castle as the sun was going down. Great food and very good service. Spotless restaurant, lovely atmosphere. One of our favourite restaurants.

    Really lovely view with some great food. Would recommend or go again if I was staying overnight at Leeds castle. Slightly limited menu but we found something on there that we liked.

    Food good but quite pricey and very restricted menu, especially for one vegan in our party (not one item on the menu was indicated as vegan friendly). The experience could be improved by a comfy bar area with soft seating, so can enjoy a relaxed pre or post dinner drink or coffee. Range of drinks at bar could be extended.

    We had a table on the terrace with fantastic views of the Castle . The service was excellent with friendly and helpful staff and our food arrived promptly The food was very good and we were not rushed after our meal to leave which meant we spent some time savouring the wonderful evening and views

    Ask for a window seat, as you get a wonderful view of Leeds Castle. Staff charming and attentive. Food good but not huge portions

    Not much of a variety for veg/vegan. I checked the menu on the website and it was completely different on the day, (website needs to changed regularly). It was quite empty so I guess the atmosphere was dry! Having said that I came for my birthday a few years back and thoroughly enjoyed it. The standard and quality of food has deteriorated. Would I go again, probably for the beautiful view, but if I was to eat again the food choices and quality would need to be improved massively.

    We have visited many times as a group to enjoy being one of our favourite places. However our last visit on Sunday evening was terrible. Limited menu being only one available with extremely limited choices for all including myself being vegetarian with just one option of risotto. Opted for roast chicken without the chicken and the portion size was not enhanced either. The waitress at the point of paying asking how was everything when I said could of been better even agreed and as a gesture of goodwill applied a discount which was nice but still didn’t make up for the disappointment. Then explained limited staff were on duty and they had an issue with supplies which if we had of been pre warned would of possibly opted to go elsewhere for our special occasion get together
