Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Marquis at Alkham is a diner's paradise - a true jewel in the Kent countryside. We received a warm welcome from staff who went to great lengths to explain the menu and see to our every need.

My starter of tortellini of lobster and salmon from the à la carte menu was a delight to behold and delicious too. For the main course I enjoyed breast of duck, confit duck and prune hash, duck faggot, braised red cabbage and sweet peppercorn sauce - a true celebration of cooking technique and first-class ingredients. The aged fillet of beef with truffled dauphine potatoes, leek purée, girolles and Madeira jus was declared 'perfect' by my husband. The dessert menu caused a problem as there were so many delicious choices to tempt us, but eventually my partner opted for the innovative Gadds ale cake with pressed apple terrine and Ashmore farmhouse cheese ice cream, which was both interesting and extremely moreish. My own choice of raspberry soufflé was easily the best I have ever tasted, and an accompaniment of praline ice cream and Madagascan vanilla bean sauce completed our perfect evening. We enjoyed our meal with a glass of Chapel Down sparkling wine and vowed to return to the Marquis as soon as possible for another out-of-this-world eating experience.
