A warm welcome and good food awaits you
One of the finest English traditions, a leisurely Sunday roast can be enjoyed in the Garden Room at Port Lympne Hotel & reserve in Kent.
Originally the stableyard of Sir Philip Sassoon's country estate, you'll be dining in the same surroundings as Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin and many other famous former guests to the historic Kent mansion.
Home made & locally sourced
Choose from succulent cuts of roast aged topside of beef, roast corn fed chicken or roast middle white pork loin. All our Sunday roasts are served with cauliflower puree, red cabbage, Walmestone growers greens, Chantenay carrots, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding.
Our chefs take great pride in sourcing the finest quality local ingredients and serving seasonal home made dishes to delight our guests.

There was nothing on the menu that wasn't perfectly cooked, presented and served - and don't skip the puddings, as they are a highlight. We all need a bit of a treat right now and you don't get a much more special day out than a sumptuous meal with chandeliers overhead and the chance to see lions and tigers on your way back to the car.
A grand conservatory echoing the exotic style of both the mansion and the reserve itself, The Garden Room is a further extension of the illusion that guests are not in the home counties, but instead, a luxury resort in a distant foreign land.

Chandeliers, fizz and monkeys!
Took our teenage daughters for a birthday meal. Beautiful decor. Excellent and delicious food. Glass of bubbles. Attentive intelligent happy staff who were able to assist with gluten free ideas and options. Walked out to a starry sky and howling monkeys…magical and unique.

Faultless! Amazing food, service and cocktails
We had dinner here while staying overnight at the reserve, couldn’t fault the friendly chatty staff, amazing food and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely visit again, one small point would be not a huge choice and I did struggle to pick a dish but that’s not a negative maybe a special or two would be an added bonus? We also had some great cocktails.
