Family lunch

Restaurant was very quiet so not much ambiance, other than that the food was lovely and it was nice to have the option of choosing from the specials board. A very nice welcome and goodbye made it a very enjoyable visit :-)

I found this little treasure, in my opinion, whilst being stuck in the car park because of the terrible traffic around the area, so I took the opportunity to find some food. Yes it was quiet but it soon filled up with a few couples and business people but that didn't deter the greeting I received or the service. I... More

I ordered the chicken for main, it was so overcooked it was like rubber, I did not eat the meal and advised the waitress and manager of how bad the food was, I was therefore surprised that the dish wasn't removed from the bill. Needless to say I won't be going back!

The wait was average, food was average, service could have been better. The location is perfect and in summer the marina... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant for an evening meal and was just as good as our first visit. The restaurant is modern and in a very pleasant position with large windows overlooking the docks. You cannot fault the service, the staff are friendly and attentive and the restaurant is spotlessly clean. There is plenty of choice on... More

Was looking for somewhere for lunch before a family movie day. Well Zippers is the ideal place. Good food, excellent service and good value. We went in winter but in summer this location would be fantastic with the marina next door and the fabulous surroundings. Well recommended, in Chatham, go and find Zippers.

Food was great when it finally arrived .. too little staff with too many customers .. even had to ask to be served my starter which had sat under hot light for nearly 10 minutes .. disappointing

Third time visiting here in the last couple of years. Food was good, nothing special. Service was rather slow and needs addressing.
