For the last 40 years David and Rona have been whisking up ambrosial food for the world and his wife to eat. On its own that’s an incredible achievement, but to do so at the highest level is extraordinary. What’s more, they make no fuss about it, just come to work every day and excel at what they do, a testament to their dedication and love of good food. As for Read’s, it’s a restaurant with rooms that happens to be a country house set in five acres of lawned gardens that include – no surprise – a productive kitchen garden. Inside, elegance at every turn. There's a sitting-room bar for pre-dinner drinks, then three dining rooms, where you eat at clothed tables, perhaps a Montgomery Cheddar soufflé, wild mallard with blackberries, Cox apple mousse with toffee apple jelly and cinnamon ice cream. Bedrooms are just as good, country-house splendour in spades. Expect decanters of sherry, Roberts radios, beds dressed in crisp white linen, smart bathrooms with white robes. Don’t miss the orchards at Brogdale, where thousands of varieties of apples, pears, plums and cherries are on show.

Guest feedback
"Having looked at your entry, we booked for one night at Reads as we wanted to visit Chatham Docks & Faversham. It was outstanding in all respects. A very warm welcome to a beautiful house serving superb food and wine. Our room, Lime, was beautifully appointed and nothing had been left to chance. A perfect stay, and we are much looking forward to returning for two or three days before too long. We would not hesitate to recommend Reads"
