I was surprised to see we were seated in the marquee. I would have preferred the main restaurant. It was windy & therefore rattly. The food was very nice & the lady singing was very good & a nice addition.

The food was amazing with a very pretty setting. The service at the table was great although it felt awkward when we walked in. No one approached us immediately which is fine when you have a waiting area but we were standing in the middle of the eating area. It was extremely quiet with little atmosphere and with 2 children, who are well behaved there was quite a lot of
shhhhing going on! Would be good for a group booking where you make your own atmosphere!

A very pleasant venue; intimate scale and very attractive setting.
Tasting menu was vert good - each course was fine. Slightly incoherent sequencing - sorbet was pudding esque and preceded an exceptional parfait/cheesecake whereas a palate cleanser and/or prior to pigeon would have been preferable. Wine flight was Ok but a little ordinary, but was very good value. Will definitely return to try table d'hote. Recommended as a 'go and enjoy'

Frasers was a brilliant find. We went there to celebrate a Birthday and as it was near to Valentines Day we chose the Valentines Tasting menu. It was superb. Portions were perfect and the food amazing.
Frasers is a little in the middle of nowhere but it was truly worth the drive. Will definitely look forward to our next visit.

Amazing afternoon tea. So good this was our 3rd time at Frasers. The team are always super lovely and welcoming, nothing is too my trouble. The food is amazing - sandwiches are fresh, the sausage roll is the best I’ve ever tasted and is always served warm alongside the cheese and onion tart which again is super scrummy. The scones are huge and getting more jam or cream is never a problem. Always have a great time and always recommend others. It’s my group of friends go to place for afternoon tea now. We’ll be back soon no doubt!

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and what a great find it was. one of the friends we went with has an allergy to fish and the staff couldn't have been more understanding and helpful - they really went out of their way to make us comfortable. The service was a relaxed and nice mix of attention but not overly so. The setting is beautiful modernised barn finished to the highest level.

we all had Steak and it was the very best we ever tasted and no steak knives needed... well done to the wonderful chef they have there - the desserts were the only time we were all quiet - savouring the tastes !. t

I really cant praise the restaurant enough. the only very slight downside was its in the middle of nowhere - long drive down country lanes to get there and late evening you can easily miss the small green restaurant sign. There needs to be some lighting on the dirt path leading up to the restaurant as it is very dark. the a la cart menu is limited to three choices of each course - not that I am a fan of long menus but perhaps another choice on main course would be good and finally the coffee is pretty limited selection.

having said all that, the four of us had a fab night and its certainly somewhere we will return to - maybe even try a stay in the lovely accommodation they offer.
Well done to all the team - and thanks for a lovely evening
Ann

I took my wife here for our anniversary and we had an amazing 3 course lunch. The setting on a working farm is unique and provides a great setting. The food was absolutely delicious and looked as good as it tasted. The service was excellent, keeping us topped up, food arriving in a timely manner (not too fast or too slow), and just really friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be coming back soon!

We went for New Years Eve. It was beautiful & food outstanding. There was a Nice atmosphere & the Jazz band was good but not for the whole of the evening, it got a bit boring. I feel music should of changed & livened up with modern party music so everyone could've danced.

We waited upon arrival to be welcomed even though we were precisely on time. The food was good (actually faultless) though for a Sunday lunch it had to be pre-ordered. Never had that anywhere else we've eaten. Their idiosyncasy. There were only 2 tables for lunch (us and a 6) so the ambiance was lacking, no complaints with the decor. We never did get a reasonable explanation as to why every other table had a table cloth but not ours. A later table of three came for afternoon too and that looked delicious. It was a good experience but we're not encouraged to return.

We had three meals at various times of day as part of an overnight stay. All three were lovely, tasty and beautifully presented. The staff team (both before and during our stay) were brilliant; all very friendly, welcoming and so helpful! I would totally recommend Fraser's as a place to eat, but better still as a place to eat and stay - the perfect, peaceful getaway in the middle of the lovely Kent countryside.

Good atmosphere, excellent food & a very attentive waiter. They accommodated my needs but as a Pescetarian I had three fish dishes on the tasting menu & two were the same. I feel a different vegetarian option should be offered such as the vegetarian Wellington or a mushroom alternative. But we had a really good night & enjoyed the whole experience.

This is a splendid setting. Having booked for afternoon tea it was disappointing not to be offered a choice of teas! This is an obvious area for improvement. However the food was excellent and plentiful, such that we had the remains wrapped to take away. It was an unhurried occasion which suited our needs. We would certainly visit again.

Nice small restaurant with well priced a la carte menu. However disappointing choice of local English wine. Perhaps suggest a separate list of local wines like the gin menu? Shame not to show off lovely local wine.

5 stars isn’t enough for Frasers. They go up to 11!

Our 3-course lunch was more like a 6-course lunch. It just kept on coming! Three different starters, a huge main and the best crumble I have ever tasted for dessert.

What makes the Sunday experience even more special is the jazz/blues/swing music provided by Scott & The Explorers whose front man is hilarious.

The service can’t be faulted either. In fact the head chef called me the day before to ask what vegetarian choices we’d like!

We’re lucky - we moved to a couple of miles away, but make the trip. It’s well worth it!

We had a wonderful afternoon tea at Frasers. The jazz/blues band is just brilliant and were a great accompaniment to our special occasion. They even played our song!

The service was a little on the slow side because we were in a marquee at the back of the property and the poor waitresses had to walk twice as far to the kitchen, but they were very good-natured and did their best.

The food was excellent, especially the huge servings of clotted cream. It would have been good to have more sandwich options since we are vegetarians, but in fairness I forgot to mention this when we booked.

Two couples celebrating two birthdays ,this restaurant is in a lovely setting and on such a lovely evening it would have been nice to eat on the terrace ,we did have a drink out there but then had to go inside for our meal ,it’s only a small restaurant and all the tables by the open doors were taken .
The food was very good ,we all had the tasting menu ,it was quite a long between courses and we were the last in the restaurant ,no mention was made to our birthdays even though the restaurant was informed .
But I would say go ( try for a table by the open doors )
