Full of character, The Granville is divided into a comfortable sofa area, a bar area and an eating area, with a central fireplace. Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a patio area, where up to 40 customers can dine al fresco.
The bar serves traditional Kentish cask ale and distinctive international lagers and offers a good selection of wine by the glass.
with shaved Fennel, New Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes
Come and join us for a delicious roast, serving from 12 noon. Alongside our Roasts we also have a Sunday Specials Menu
Excellent food, well organised COVID precautions, venue would benefit from some form of sound suppressing ceiling covering, very noisy group in the next tables ( hen group)
Otherwise top marks👍
Service was not to be faulted and food was good - although menu is a bit limited the fish and chips is very good
Very welcoming. Restaurant well organised - felt very safe. Quality of food was excellent.
A bit surprised staff not wearing visors?
We were greeted at the entrance and shown to our table, safely distanced from other tables. Our meal was meal was lovely. The only disappointment was staff not wearing either a mask or visor and we were not asked for our contact details for track and trace.
Thank you for your review. Sorry you were disappointed with the team not wearing mask/visors, the current Gov Guidelines state that we have the choice to wear one or not, the majority of our team have chosen not too. However, if guidelines change we will follow them. And to reassure you, with test & trace when you made your booking over the phone/online or if you arrived without a booking our host will have added you to our booking system which is where we store the details (name & tel).
Never disappoints. We enjoyed our second Sunday roast with great service.
Well looked after by the staff and food was very good. Social distancing being observed at all times.
Thank you for your review and recommendation. We are observing all the Government Guidance as best we can. Thank you
We had a very warm welcome, exceptional service by Freya and our meals were extremely tasty
Thank you! Will pass on your review to Freya! Hope to see you again soon.
Really enjoyed our meal and our time at the Granville! Made us feel almost normal in these strange times. Thank you staff & chef for a wonderful first experience since Lockdown! Polly & Family. Xx
Thank you for your lovely review. We hope to see you again soon.
One of our favourite locations. Warm welcome, spacious environment.
The questions asked are very difficult to answer during 'semi lockdown'
Thank you for your recommendation.
We ate in the garden, it was lovely. Food and Service was to a good standard. No complaints and a very kind waitress!
Thank you for your review and recommend, it sounds like you really enjoyed your meal and visit with us. But your star ratings were very low....is there a reason for this?
We went to the Granville for the first time a few weeks ago on a Friday and the food was delicious, Fish and chips and burger dishes were honestly amazing. We have been going to the Granville for years but this Sunday just gone was very disappointing for 4 adults and 1 child. We spent £128 and to be honest it was not good, The Roast dinners were not nice to eat, yorkshire puddings like crisps, food piled up in a heap and just not nice, VERY disappointed as took our parents out as a treat as we havent seen them since lockdown and not happy at all.
Thank you for reviewing us. We are really sorry to read how disappointed you were with your food. We have fed this back to the kitchen team, this is definitely not our usual standard. Roast dinners are one of our specialities so it is very disappointing to read how you found yours. Please be assured we are looking into this and we do hope you will come back and give us another try.
Have been here on a few occasions and was always impressed. Yesterday I felt the standard had slipped. Service was very good. However, our waitress would keep dashing off before we would have a chance to ask for something else which was a little frustrating but it was otherwise was very good and friendly.
The food was quite cold, considering it wasn’t busy at all (we were the first sitting and it was early). the beef wasn’t pink and I felt that the sharing platter of vegetables wasn’t really enough for two people. When sharing carrots for example. It would be better to have an even number that can be shared equally to avoid one person feeling guilty or greedy for having more. Lovely restaurant with a nice ambience so it would be a shame to let things slip which is why I decided to comment
Thank you for reviewing us. Sorry to read you were disappointed though. All your comments have been fed back to the team, we certainly don't want to let things slip. Thank you for making us aware of your experience. We do hope you will give us another try soon.
We visit The Granville regularly and the standard never disappoints the staff are always welcoming and look after us really well the food is superb with a lovely varied menu and the country setting adds to its charm a really lovely place to go.
Thank you for your review. We hope to see you again soon.
Overcharged us. We were charged for a beer we didn't have!
Thank you for reviewing. We are very sorry about the error on your bill. I will check with the team, but if you bring your receipt I am sure the team will refund you.
The Granville is one of my favourite places to eat in Kent. This was our visit visit our since lockdown and I have to say the Granville managed everything very well (one door to go in, one door to leave, paper menus etc). The staff were very professional and remembered us from a previous visit which was a lovely touch. The food was outstanding and fairly priced. Our daughter is 1 and a highchair was provided. We were celebrating our birthday and we had candles put on our desserts which was a nice touch. Will definitely be back very soon!
Thank you for such a lovely review. We were delighted to see you again. Hope to see you again soon.
Excellent Parking (I am a full time wheelchair user). Restaurant very accessible.
Food amazing. Staff very caring.
Thank you for your review. Hope to see you again soon.
A good meal and value for money. Ideal family pub!
Never lets you down The Granville good food even with limited menu at the moment lovely friendly staff
Thank you so much! We hope to see you again soon!
We had been before under different ownership so was disappointed at the food. However it was tasty all the same. Not anything outstanding but decent. Chips were not homemade which is always a disappointment. Excellent service. Friendly and attentive waiting staff.
Thank you for your review. We took over the Granville about 4 years ago now. Delighted the service was excellent but sorry to read you were disappointed with the food. We are currently working on our Autumn menu, as we have been running a reduced menu since we re-opened after lockdown. We do hope you will give us another try.
Have dined at the Granville many times but visited for a Sunday roast for the first time at the weekend and had a very enjoyable meal with good service.
Thank you for your review. Delighted you enjoyed your Sunday Roast!
We both ordered the 6 oz steak and it was cooked exactly as ordered and was very tasty. The food is always very good food at the Granville.
Thank you, will pass your comments on to our Kitchen Team.
As always the food and service was perfect. Covid safe measures in place and very clear without impacting negatively on the atmosphere or service. Well done everyone at the Granville, I’m sure there must be some restaurants that would do well to follow their lead!
Thank you for a lovely, safe, evening
Thank you so much. That is a great review to read. Hope to see you again soon.
Slow service - average food - wine selection from local vineyard not available. Very disappointed and we are locals who would use it often. Just felt unwelcome. Maybe we just got a bad night.
Thank you for reviewing us. I really do think you had a bad night - I am so sorry. We love having our locals join us and we have a large number of them. Please do drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org as I would like to offer you a voucher to come back and give us another try. We are very sorry.
Lovely food, great service. Lovely place to eat and drink
Wonderful! Delicious food, lovely looking pub and the staff were really friendly!
Thank you so much!
Excellent food and service. A pleasurable experience.
This was our first visit to The Granville and it won’t be the last! We were treated with courtesy and all aspects of the COVID regulations were applied. There was a reduced and interesting menu which had something for everyone and our meals were delicious and piping hot. Service was excellent and the ambiance was very nice. Would definitely recommend a visit!
Thank you for your review. Delighted you enjoyed your meal and we hope to see you again soon.
The Granville was it's usual self. We were recognised by staff even though we're irregular previous visitors and not been there for some time due to Covid. The food was was up to it's usual good standard.
Thank you for the review! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Always a warm welcome here, although a busy night, the food was more than good, the service always friendly, a must for that supper with friends....
High quality pub food. We had rump steaks and they were tender and full of flavour.
Thank you for your review and recommendation! Hope to see you again soon.
Lovely family meal using the Eat Out to Help out scheme.
Social distancing measures were in place and staff were very helpful.
Thank you so much for your review and recommendation. We can't wait to see you again soon.
Wonderful food. We will be talking about our king prawn starter for some time. So nice to get out again.
Thank you so much. Will let the kitchen team know about the prawns!
Nice friendly staff. Clean tables and floors. Great social distancing. A couple of items on reduced menu not available. Had to wait a while to order 2nd drinks and for table to be cleared. But would go again and recommend this restaurant.
Thank you for recommendation. Also thank you for making us aware of where we needed to improve, these will be passed on to the teams for training. Hope to see you again soon.
More pub grub than gastro-pub so a bit disappointing compared with previous visits. Table needed cleaning when we arrived & surprised that staff were not wearing masks. But grateful to be able to eat out again & a pleasant evening catching up with friends.
Thank you for reviewing us, sorry you were disappointed with the food. Our menu is growing each day and we hope to back to a fuller menu very soon. We are following government guidelines with regards to masks and currently our team members have the choice to wear a mask or not, and the majority have chosen not to. Obviously we will make any necessary changes if the guidelines change. Once again, thank you for reviewing us and we hope to see you on another visit.
Great food Good choice on menu
Staff very friendly helpful and happy in there work.
Had cleaning methods in progress also people going in and out correctly(Covid)
Would highly recommend !
Thank you so much for this recommendation. Hope to see you again soon.
Amazing! Thank you
Just a shame we were sitting on a wooden pew which wasn't too comfortable in the bar area but it was made up by the good food and great service as usual.
Thank you for you review, we are so sorry about the bench being uncomfortable. We have had to remove the cushions in line with covid guidelines, but a few people have commented on this bench, we will definitely look into some alternative furniture. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. Pleased the food and service were good though and really hope to see you again soon.
We had a lovely family meal, felt relaxed with my children, which was great and the food was lovely.
Food was lush and the safety measures in place make you feel safe. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for the recommendation. Hope to see you again soon.
