Read’s restaurant with rooms is set in an elegant Georgian manor house surrounded by tranquil grounds with lawns shaded by lofty cedar, weeping willow and horse chestnut trees. The restaurant’s widespread reputation is founded on the distinctive cooking of Michelin-starred chef David Pitchford, whose seasonal dishes blend herbs and vegetables from the manor’s own walled kitchen garden with local game and fish fresh from the quayside at nearby Whitstable and Hythe.  To complement the food, an extensive wine list balances the European classics with a carefully chosen and imaginative selection from the Americas and the New World.
