The lunchtime menu is good, well presented and very tasty. When the chef does his peanut butter cheesecake it is to die for. The only shame is that they do not do food in the evening. Would recommend Christies for food.

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

We visited Christies wine bar with great expectations, which were exceeded due to the staff being very friendly and welcoming, especially the waitresses, as they kept coming to see us and making sure everything was okay and the food was at a high standard. The food was very enjoyable and I would happily come back and bring more of the... More

This time it was even better, the fish was supreme! This along with the light and airy environment, where you can watch the world go bye as you you... More
