Quirky surroundings by, enjoyable evening with friends

Turned up on a Saturday night without a booking and somehow they found us a table for four ! Service was ok and food reasonable for the price. Made for an enjoyable evening with friends.

We visit Cullins Yard every year when we stay in East Kent. It gets better each time. We did think it was failing slightly a couple of years ago, but we are thrilled that it is back on form. The food is varied and delicious, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant is placed in an excellent position... More

We went here after a LONG drive. After a few recent disappointing meals elsewhere we were thrilled with the quality of the food. Yes the place is 'lived in' but that brings character and lots to look at. My 4-year-old asked for the chef to thank him for the best mussels ever (she's had a few)... That says it all.... More

We stopped here for a bite to eat after a visit to de Bradlei Wharf. The place, that includes a 'brackery', was pretty empty but service was disappointing. Orders are taken at the bar and our simple one of a panino to share took a while. Despite the lack of customers, we were directed to cutlery inside the bar when... More

Myself and a colleague ate here having read positive reviews. Our meal was very disappointing...sea bass and Thai green curry. The sea bass was over cooked and the meal cold...the clue in the herb butter not melting! the Thai green curry was in a powdery sauce. We were asked on two occasions how our meal was and we reported back... More

Had some friends down from Essex for the day and visited Dover to let them see Operation Stack in force. We had heard about Cullins and found it hidden away so decided to have coffee etc there. Will certainly visit again, reasonable prices, great view of the yachts and good service by friendly pleasant staff. Well worth a visit if... More

The location and atmosphere cannot be faulted. The food and service, however, is not as good. I had the cod and chips and the chips were lovely but the cod was very soggy. Overall the food is very over priced for the quality. The service is VERY slow. we waited around 30 minutes between each course. The worst thing about... More

Maybe a quiet evening with a friend, new or old, this a really good choice. Groups also enjoy the pleasant Waterside surroundings, food and service being excellent.

Great food however the service was just very slow. Dinner took a few hours which we were hoping for a quicker experience. But food was great! Would certainly return and I loved the decor of the place.
