Good Atmosphere and Food

Went here with a party of four during a visit to Dover. It really was a good find. It had a nice open feeling with a nautical theme and a view of the wharf. The complimentary bread and olives was great and the food was tasty. The paella was chock full of meat but probably could have been seasoned... read more

An interesting, slightly quirky establishment with a most welcoming atmosphere. We all had the fish and chips which was excellent in quality and generous in size. The fish was cooked to perfection and the batter just right. We did not try other dishes so cannot comment on them. The drinks were reasonable in price and selection, especially for such a... More

This is probably the best fish restaurant I have ever been to, and the best in Dover for freshly cooked food for families. The Mussels in White wine sauce are a delight to the pallatt and good value. I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. Always busy, staff are attentive and not pushy, and however... More

Went in this afternoon with my husband sat in the conservatory getting wet (from the rain leaking through the roof)eating the most awful lunch most of which we left. The fishcakes were particularly dreadful the waitress even asked us what was wrong with them and when we explained she said she would see if they could be taken off the... More

Just off the seafront in Dover, this is a hidden gem - pleasant inside and a dear little beer garden outside overlooking the water (we didn't sit outside as it was pouring with rain! ) Reasonable choice of lunches: we all had cold options which were very tasty. A bit pricey but not outrageous, and unsurprising considering the good location.... More

We have eaten there frequently and have never been disappointed. Friendly and organized restaurant which serves LOCAL beers at sensible prices. Would recommend it. Cullins Yard isn't going to set the world alight but it gives good value and a pleasant environment.

About two weeks ago my family stopped off here for a birthday lunch. I had been previously warned over the last four or five years both from regular patrons of the restaurant as well as previous employees that the manager has somewhat of a a bad reputation locally, though all the staff on our visit seemed to contain the usual...

I liked the ambience, and the bread and olives that arrived quickly. I got the traditional Sunday beef three-course dinner, which was okay. My kids each got the fish n chips, which were very good. My wife got the scallops, which were tasty, but pretty meager. It was a little on the expensive side and service was a little on... More
