The West House Restaurant With Rooms

Who we are

The West House, opened by Graham and Jackie Garrett in 2002, is a small family run restaurant, with a reputation for fantastic food, earned through Graham’s focus on excellent delivery of the finest ingredients.

The West House Restaurant

The restaurant gained a Michelin star after its first year, and has held it ever since. With Graham at the stoves, he and his small team have created that rare thing, a perfect local restaurant, many people’s favourite secret food destination, and the subject of many a pilgrimage.


The small dining room, in a 16th Century weaver’s cottage on Biddenden High Street, is a lovely and characterful place to relax and enjoy the food. The High Weald is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and rich with historical interest, providing many additional reasons to visit the area.


We hope to welcome you to The West House soon.
