The place to go for an event, we booked one end of the room for a funeral party, the staff laid on a lovely buffet, and fresh water with ice and lemon was left on the bar, which was free. The chairs are a little uncomfortable, you feel like your laying down when sat back. Other then that a nice... More

Having lost a dear friend of ours who lived in Birchington we had her wake at Christies. The staff were very attentive and the spread that we had was very nice indeed and there was plenty of food to please everyone.

The best Sunday lunch around at a really great price of £7.95 for your main plate with at least four meats to choose from. My party today had the rump of lamb, beef, and turkey cooked to perfection and would recommend this to anyone it was accompanied with no less than 7 vegetables. All staff looked after us to a...

Visited with children for Sunday Lunch. This was £7.95 with roast potatoes and an abundance of vegetables including cauliflower cheese. An extra pound would avail you with a selection of different roast meats. This was a good wholesome roast dinner and ideal for an inexpensive family meal. We booked ahead and this was a sensible move. The puddings were excellent.... More

An excellent Sunday lunch with fresh ingredients and no less than 7 vegetables! The portions were generous and the brioche , berry and chocolate dessert was amazing. The staff were very smart, helpful and extremely polite and attentive. We really did receive service with a smile. Will certainly be returning and recommending to friends and family.

Smart dress code for waitresses who where very keen to serve and adhere to our needs. Very generous starters were served promptly. Water was offered without having to ask.

Just returned from a wonderful meal at Christies wine bar and bistro. We booked a table for 6 people in the morning and pre warned them that one of our party was gluten intolerant and a vegetarian. We arrived at 7.30 and was greeted with a complimentary aperitif, a good start to the evening. The menu had a good choice... More

Went there last evening for our wedding anniversary meal. Couldn't fault anything, a great place to eat, management and staff very attentive, food was fantastic. I would highly recommend Christies for a special occasion (or any occasion) and wish them continued success.
