Went for a meal and sat in restaurant as opposed to Bar. Excellent attentive service and very nice food. Fish and chips was excellent and gammon was cooked to perfection my husband said. Surroundings were very comfortable. We will be back!

Without doubt the best GF burger I have ever had. The rest of the family thoroughly enjoyed their food too. A great place to eat if visiting Kents Cavern.

After a long journey from North Wales we needed somewhere for Supper. Food at the Kents was good. The whitebait starter was reported as being delicious by the kids and my mini chorizo with honey was lovely. Burgers and Lasagne for mains were also very...More
