Locally sourced food and botanical cocktails
The Garden Room
The Garden Room Restaurant & Bar is nestled within 15 acres of landscaped gardens at the historic Port Lympne Hotel, and surrounded by 600 acres of wilderness, dotted with some of the world’s most rare and endangered animals.
Designed by The Aspinall Foundation’s Creative Director, Victoria Aspinall, the former stable yard of the original Sassoon estate retains its old world charm and welcoming atmosphere and offers an inviting space for couples and families to dine.Book your table
Our menus, created by Executive Chef Lee Edney, showcase the exceptional range of produce available in Kent, including ingredients sourced within the Port Lympne and Howletts estates. The highlight of our menus is not only their innovative use of great, fresh flavours, but also their commitment to seasonality.

The Garden Room’s Mediterranean laid back charm paired with delicious locally sourced food and botanical cocktails is already making it a firm favourite amongst our guests.
Executive Chef at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve
I’m a great advocate of cooking honest, unpretentious food that speaks for itself. I like to create dishes that become a memory and ones that you’ll want to order time and time again. Being from Kent, it’s fantastic to have a variety of fresh produce on our doorstep. By keeping it local, we’re adding a story to each dish, enhancing the flavours and supporting our own communities.
