Finding somewhere good for lunch in Birchington isn't easy, and this place isn't bad. Style is very late 1980's winebar - time hasn't moved on here. It's bright and airy and lacking a little cozy charm. Decor is a little reminiscent of the resident's lounge in an old people's home. If you prefer beer to wine do note there is... More

A very well run establishment serving excellent food, Derek is a very warming host and the chef turns out some delightful lunches and dinners need to book for evenings i believe. Friday nights tend to be music nights with live bands performing

Have been to Christies for both a night out and for lunch. Such a friendly atmosphere with fantastic staff who accommodate your every need. The food was fantastic and very reasonable. On our last visit we discovered they have started serving cocktails. Brilliant range and some very unusual drinks and again very reasonable considering the alcohol content! Would recommend to...

Went to Birchington on a sunny Monday lunchtime with my family for a day out. We walked down the highstreet looking for a nice place to have lunch, only to find that most places close on a Monday for food, until we reached the bottom of the highstreet and found the Wine Bar. We had a delicious lunch in the... More

How I have missed this hidden gem? Well I don't know its one of the cleanest pub/cafe bars I have seen for years. The staff were friendly coffee and a lunch was very good and value for money defiantly will be back.
