    It's much better a venue since the refurbishment but the quality of the food isn't where it was but saying that it isn't bad. The renovations continue in to the garden and as food and drink venues go in Ashford this one should be experienced. Kid and dog friendly too with an extensive play area in the deceptively spacious garden.
