The Restaurant at Wallett's Court has been attracting foodies and bon viveurs for decades, and it's not hard to see why. Its roots are firmly established in the classical traditions of fine cuisine, but it's the combination of forward-thinking front-of-house manager Steve Harvey and head chef Paul Birkett that has put Wallett's Court firmly on the culinary map.

The Restaurant is at the heart of the 17th-Century manor house, with its carved oak beams, giant fireplaces and exposed brickwork. History positively oozes from the ancient walls and the atmosphere is very much 'country house', but a lighter, more modern touch is provided by contemporary artwork hanging in the three dining rooms and the use of subtle lighting in the evenings. The menus here revolve around the use of high-quality local, seasonal produce. Fruit, vegetables, herbs and more come from the extensive gardens surrounding the ancient manor, and local specialities such as St Margaret's Bay lobster, Romney Marsh lamb and Alkham Valley beef are prepared with precision and finesse. In the evening, three-course dinners come with delightfully delicate canapés and an amuse-bouche. To complement the assured cooking there is a list of wines from around the globe, sourced with great care and well priced, with a selection at less than £20 a bottle.

Wallett's Court is more than a fine-dining destination. The country house hotel has 17 bedrooms and a spa within the grounds, and makes a perfect base from which to explore the spectacular White Cliffs countryside. It is also the ideal place for an escape from the rush - join the film-makers, actors, writers and media moguls who come for the cool spa, good food, fine wine and excellent service. You can also kick back in the bar - warming in front of the open fire in winter or daydreaming with a glass of wine on the terrace in summer - but the Restaurant at Wallett's Court is truly the beating heart of the hotel, and is worth the visit alone.
