Came in here on my own during a very busy lunchtime. I was immediately made to feel welcome by the friendly waiter who showed me to a table straight away. I ordered a drink - superb fruity Biddenden rosé - and that arrived promptly.
The quirky interior, lively buzz from the clientele and quaint location - superb for people watching! - all made for a great atmosphere.
I chose the duck egg and mushrooms on toast. It was a very generous portion, the egg was perfect, and the combination of fresh rustic ingredients and flavours worked really well.
Then I tackled dessert. There were several very tempting options but I went for the ice cream sandwich with popcorn and caramel which I had never heard of before. It was a real treat, tasted completely home made and the combination was delicious.
I finished off with a perfect lattė which was made by the tall waiter who talked me through the different coffees available, he really knew his beans!
So a thoroughly enjoyable lunch - superb food and drinks, prices were very reasonable, service was good especially given how busy they were, friendly polite staff, and a great atmosphere.
Will definitely be going again.

Agree with the other reviewers - this place has seriously gone down the toilet in the last 6 months or so. I had been once before and had a nice time, but tonight was basically terrible service and overpriced, mediocre food.
A message to the world's worst waiter - just because you have a beard and a top knot, and presumably play keyboards in a god-awful synth band, doesn't mean you aren't expected to at least acknowledge the presence of the luckless people who eat in The Elk in the Woods.
