2 for 1 at Hengist Restaurant

For relaxed brasserie-style dining in a friendly atmosphere, book a table at The Hengist, situated in Aylesford, Maidstone. This restaurant is housed in a 16th Century grade II listed building, with timber beams and a roaring fire. Located just ten minutes’ walk from Aylesford train station, The Hengist is the ideal place to visit when in the Maidstone area.

The owners want The Hengist to be available to all, whether you are dining with children or are looking for a spot for a first date. The chilled out yet sophisticated atmosphere means that whatever the occasion, you can feel right at home.

The fantastic menu is second to none, and the chef has clearly spent much time and effort deciding what would impress customers the most. Of the starters, try the ‘Flower Marie’, with salt baked beetroot, hazelnut, sorrel and green olives, or the ‘Jerusalem Artichoke Veloute’, with truffle, popcorn and Artichoke jam. The mains are just as impressive, with ‘Pan Roast Plaice’, served with celery, sauce vierge, caramelised cauliflower and braised onion, or the mouth-watering ‘Pork Three Ways’ with pak choi, slow roast belly, roast fillet, beer braised cheek pickled carrots and apple and lime puree.

Whatever you decide to choose at The Hengist, and whenever you dine, we are sure that you will be impressed. If you aren’t in the Maidstone area any time soon, make plans for a visit!

    Staff were all very friendly (Alex, Abbie, Jamie and Claire) and attentive. Celebrating my fiancé birthday and they even bought out a birthday plate at the end of our meal. Food was good but not worth the amount you pay for it, wouldn't dine here without tastecard. Two courses would of cost us £54 but with 241 only cost us £27. "

    Visited last night as was in the area - phoned to book and mentioned tastecard- couldn't have been easier. Found restaurant and it's a lovely old building in nice grounds although as it was raining heavily we didn't explore , but it must be a lovely place to visit and maybe dine al fresco in the warmer weather.
    We were welcomed, coats taken and we were shown to our table in a beautifully decorated and furnished restaurant with an open fire ( sadly not lit but it is supposed to be nearly summer ! ) and with exposed beams. Lovely atmosphere and ambience.
    Great menu with obvious care taken in menu items and local ingredients. Freshly home made warm speciality breads with butter & oil dip put on table. Efficient, pleasant but unobtrusive service - we had 3 courses which is unusual for us but the food & menu selection is so very good. Incredibly good food and presentation. All round one of the best meals we have had in recent times and we eat out a lot. So good we booked to return again tonight instead of trying somewhere different as we had intended to do. Thanks Hengist & thanks Tastecard "
