Fundamentally, we want people to enjoy their evening: to soak up the atmosphere from the open kitchen; to take in the art installations; and to rediscover the joy of congenial dining, all whilst discovering fantastic food and drink.
The Gastronomist is a refined, modern event space conceived with comfort and conviviality in mind. We aim to deliver always exceptional, at times unconventional, dining experiences.
Our dinner party-styled restaurant will soon welcome guests for a curated two and a half-hour experience featuring menus inspired by the freshest and finest available ingredients from the surrounding Kent countryside.
The format of the tasting menus will consist of six courses with selected wine pairings.
You are our welcome guests and from the moment you arrive at The Gastronomist, everything will be taken care of. We have done all the hard work of crafting delicious tasting menus, carefully matched wines and great service. All you need do is enjoy yourselves.
We want to serve flavours that are intrinsically delicious, inspired by nature, and assimilate some international flair.
Our food offering is designed around the best seasonal ingredients from Kent, and occasionally beyond, to create bold menus that tell a story and have a sense of provenance.
Our bespoke 2 metre wide parrilla will be the focal point in the kitchen and is bound to capture our guests’ attention during the evening’s service.
