“Out of this world !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

First time visiting Mariners and I was so impressed by the food and quality of service and value for money. Food was hot, fresh and so tasty and for the pride, well I couldn't ask for more. I would really recommend this bar highly, especially for young families as the menu is ideal for kids. Well worth a visit....I know I will be.

“GOSH, how do they manage to stay open!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I wish I had read the reviews before going. The food was definitely below par and very small portions. Not fresh by any stretch of the imagination and literally thrown together. Lucky enough to go to Whitstable two days earlier so had a good bench mark for a like-on-like food comparison. This place needs the health authorities in, URGENTLY. Not recommended for food of any kind, beer/wine only and move on. Its a pub that cant crack the food menu not a restaurant IMHO.
Avoid!

Jason C, Manager at Mariners Bar, responded to this review, April 25, 2014
please can I firstly take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit, although I am deeply shocked at your experience. If you would kindly let me know a little more information ie as to what it is you had to eat and also what and where was requiring the 'health authorities" so that I can look into it further and speak with the members of staff concerned. At Mariners we pride ourselves on a good atmosphere , good service, and although we are not a restaurant we do offer a bar menu.
Many thanks
Jason

“Diabolical !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Worst fish and chips ever eaten in England! It tasted off. Portions were kids size! Glasses were dirty, and there was an unusual number of flies. My daughter had a chicken burger and the bun went hard half way through the meal, microwaved I expect.
Totally over priced poor value for money.
Absolute slop!
Never again.
