Interesting yummy food and lovely service

Not sure about the extra virgin Rapeseed oil instead of olive but everything else was a wonderful treat down gastro pub lane. Influences to us were pan-European/French Bistro style with locally sourced/English ingredients. I did however feel that some elements lacked seasoning and in some cases a... read more

Really liked the décor and the location nicely away from the main drag in Kemp Town. Enjoyed the food - some unusual touches but felt the ambience and other issues detracted from the positives. Service was good, but the restaurant part of the pub was more for friends meeting up for a chat rather than couples out to dinner for... More

I find that visiting a place for Sunday Roast can give an altogether different experience that at any other time and this was indeed the case here. I've reviewed the Dog previously having eaten here regularly over the last couple of years. I'll keep returning and am keen to try the bar snack menu that I'd not noticed previously. Ok,... More

As I work close to this pub (or restaurant) I decided to visit it for a drink and maybe something to eat too. Although it looks like a pub from the outside, and inside, the barmaid told me it's really a restaurant. I examined the menu, but didn't see much that was suitable, being a vegetarian, and it was expensive... More

Great food, price, good atmosphere, great location! I tried the braised pork (a special: yummy!), the location is right in kemp town, quite close to the pub scene.

Had a wonderful Sunday lunch a few weeks ago, but couldn't get a pint at 10.45pm last Thursday after a long drive to our flat in Kemp Town for a long weekend. Went to the Thomas Kemp instead.

We were looking forward to a meal with my sister and her husband. Unfortunately we were disappointed as the menu was very limited as some of the main course had sold out. 3 or the 4 of us choice the steak as we were looking forward to the triple fried chips but was told by the waitress these had sold...

We ate here on our mini honeymoon after a recommendation from a friend. One of the best steaks I've ever had, and really good cocktails. Would highly recommend for really satisfying high-end pub grub.
