Great menu, very friendly staff, outstanding views, can't recommend this place enough. Great selection of beers and lagers. Fabulous terrace overlooking the bay, my favourite place in the area.

You can't beat the setting - looking over Pegwell Bay with gorgeous sunshine on a lovely big patio. The food was nice albeit fairly standard pub grub. Took quite a while for our food to arrive and our chips arrived 10 mins after the sandwich despite ordering them together. Prices reasonable, good beer and I would certainly go again.

One of the most stunning locations for a pub/restaurant you could imagine, really friendly charming staff, yet the food was a car crash. Overcooked microwaved bought in rubbish.... Such a shame as the potential for the pub is endless...

Lovely pub with bewitching view. On glorious august evening with sun on sea we could have been in south of France. Until we ate that is. Beyond terrible. Burger so overcooked it was impenetrable & defrosted prawns on bed of lettuce with squirt of 1000 island for starter. Charming and genuinely caring staff but food just isn't good enough.

Booked table for four arrived and we were seated upstairs lovely view. We were given menus and i think rushed to order. The food was overcooked, and i thought dry apparently the cook makes everything lunchtime then its frozen and re heated. Had to wait a while for waitress to order more drinks. The waitress did not know her puddings... More

Lovely food here. When the weather is good its a fight to sit outside but it is worth it for the view. Car parking opposite pub. Well priced food. Very tasty. Never had a bad meal here. Staff are friendly. Welcomes couples and families day time.

We chose the Belle Vue as it was roughly half way around the Viking Coastal Trail, which we cycled round for an annual get together of 40-something university mates. The pub is very welcoming inside but it's the terrace out the back which is the highlight,especially on a sunny summers' afternoon, with fabulous views across Pegwell Bay. We ordered food,... More

We have been here a number of times and have always had a great "pub" meal. This time we were put in the restaurant, upstairs, and as I am recovering from a broken ankle I was not so happy.....BUT....the view was fabulous, straight over the bay. We had a good, well cooked meal, lots of it but nothing flash. The... More
