absolutely beautiful food... I took my relatives who are currently on holiday from the UK. I had the duck and it was divine...

We had a great time at The Old Vicarage! The service was excellent, everyone was really attentive and very lovely. The food was great (my duck was a little over but still delicious!), they even accommodated my request to have the fennel salad separated. Great atmosphere at the restaurant. We’ll be sure to come back to try the new barbecue menu!

Lovely experience. We enjoy the garden & the grand old house. Staff were friendly & accommodating, moving us to a table near the window with lovely views of the flowers in the garden. Will certainly visit again.

Food was perfect at old vicarage, my group had the angus beef fillet, venison and the moroccan salad which we would all get again, everything cooked great. The service was great too, they booked us a table inside and outside so we could choose where we wanted to sit. I would definitely go back and eat there again!

Pleasant ambience but disappointed we were allocated an isolated interior table - I guess First Tablers aren't regarded as premiere customers.
Food was nice but unremarkable - pork belly was not as tender as I hoped; lamb dish was too dry. Very pleasant waiting staff - thank you.

The old vicarage is a beautiful building with lots of character. Service was great but the food was amazing!! We had the tastiest angus fillet steak and the deserts were divine. I would have happily paid full price for this top quality food however having the first table made it even more of a treat!

I love the venue, it's such a great setting to relax in for an evening of fine dining.

I had the fish of the day, salmon, and it was fresh and beautifully cooked. It was topped with pesto and served with very tasty roasted baby carrots and potatoes. With it I enjoyed a rich smooth Australian Shiraz.

The sticky date pudding with caramel and ginger ice cream was perfect!

Good service and lovely food. My friend's steak was just right and my lamp rump was tender. I also like the choice of wine by the glass sizes (100ml or 250ml) and the wine was delicious too!

We recently celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary at The Old Vicarage being third wheeled by our 19month old toddler. We all enjoyed our dinner there. I had their delicious twice cooked pork belly, my husband had their fish of the day and our bubba had the kids fish and chips. We love not only the food but the overall ambiance of the place. The staff was pretty prompt giving bub stuff to keep him entertained the whole time. We will be back, definitely!

As usual The Old Vicarage never disappoints. Lovely warm evening, windows open to let breeze through. Beautiful mains - two had pork loin which they said was beautiful and I had Moroccan Salad with Salmon. Hard to pick desserts but decided on 3 x selection icecreams which made a refreshing end to meal. Excellent service with friendly waitresses. Couldn't fault and will be back.

Excellent service and venue, however the food was too heavy for a hot Canterbury day, would work great as a winter/autumn menu, but needs refinement for Summer

Delightful evening with my 89 year old father and my Step Mother. The food was delicious Fish of the Day/Groper & Morroccan Salad Lamb.
Ice Creme Selection and three spoons topped it off!
The selection of wine & beer was equally good.
The Old Vicarage I haven't been to for a long time but we'll be back!
Thank you for a wonderful Christmas celebration evening.

Lovely welcome when we arrived. Had two fussy teenagers with us and restaurant were happy to cater for them but in the end we went with the standard menu options. It was a great chance to try different items to broaden their tastes and although they weren't all hits they were all well cooked and presented. Initially it appeared the mains were rather small portions but it was an illusion created by the large plates and we all felt very satisfied with the amount of food. Would definitely consider returning.
