A gorgeous roast pork lunch and plenty of it. Staff very friendly. Too full to have a desert! As usual the Lemon Tree was very busy. Nice cosy setting.

On the high street in a gorgeous old building. Service is prompt and efficient. Food is of a high quality. The restaurant itself is spread over several rooms because of the age of the building, but many of the tables are close to each other...More

Many thanks for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed it. The traffic wardens really don't do much for tourism in Tenterden!

Sunday lunch was a real delight. A choice of the extensive Sunday lunch menu or the a la carte menu. There were 4 roasts so I went for the traditional beef. Two large slices which covered the plate! Vegetables were served separately and were both...More

My daughter and I enjoyed an afternoon tea at the restaurant. It is best to park in Waitrose as on-street parking is scarce and limited to short-stay. If you like old-fashioned and quaint this is the place to go but decor is slightly tired. The...More

I'm sorry the open sign was not turned over and I'll put the opening times on our new website. Just so you know for the future, we open at 9am every day except Sundays which is 10am. Sorry about Cafe Rouge
