About Hide and Fox

Allister and Alice bring a fresh perspective to the Kent dining scene, borne of both their illustrious careers in food and hospitality.

From Allister’s native Whitstable, to five star European hotels and the west country’s leading Michelin starred restaurants, the couple have won plaudits and awards due to their commitment to the quality of the food on the plate, and the seamless experience of modern fine dining.

Allister’s fresh take on classic British and European food is informed by a love of fresh seasonal produce, his roots on the Kent coast, and in-depth experience as an award-winning chef.

Alice has made waves of her own both as a sommelier and manager, and together they have created Hide and Fox to deliver truly exceptional dining: driven by flavour, enhanced by great wines, and offered always with the beautiful customer experience they both demand.
