Called in midday for a drink and lunch. Had lovely ploughman’s and my wife had some freshly made chicken sandwiches. It was lovely and then finished off with a large hot chocolate. Very happy friendly staff and great food, perfect

Don't allow scum to SPIKE OUR DRINKS! Stay alert as our drinks were spiked there earlier on, just before closing, by a group of foreign strangers to our area! One of us, a MALE in our group, was really unwell, but luckily realised and threw up in the toilet!!

I decided to visit here for a second time as the first time was very positive and enjoyable, however this time that wasn’t the case unfortunately. Usually the cocktails are really good but we had to send ours back because they tasted like sparking water and then we weren’t treated too nicely after so we went somewhere else. I love the outdoor seating with blankets and the music though.

Previously visited the arch bar along the lovely views of the harbour, at first glance the place looks incredibly outdated, a refurb would be a nice touch for a place with somewhat potential. I decided on a Guinness, WORST decision I made as the glass actually smelt of a strange odour, i couldn’t tell you what exactly but I’m sure glasses aren’t meant to smell when drinking out of them. On the topic of odours the place itself smelt like sewage as-well. Staff are lovely and the food was great, would recommend sitting outside when eating though. Other than these “minor” problems this place isn’t worth the visit I recommend little ships.

I visited the Arch bar for the first time recently with friends and was initially struck by it’s lovely location right opposite the harbour. However, when I approached the owner and asked whether we go the bar or sit outside he suggested I could sit on his lap instead. Luckily I remembered that this is 2020 and I didn’t swoon and fall at his feet but suggested I’d rather sit outside with my party (and partner). I then observed him being rude to his staff (who were lovely by the way) but nevertheless we enjoyed a few drinks and platters. Needless to say we won’t be visiting again as I generally prefer my venues to be less “Weinsteiny”…

We have been semi regulars of the arch bar for the last twelve months or so and it is always a nice place to go for a drink. We have been recently and thought that the COVID measures in place were ok - certainly better than some other places!!

A great place to chill out and watch the world to go by. Good drinks and good atmosphere:)

We were looking for a causal lunch for ladies who lunch, and we wasn't let down. We went down a week before to book our special lunch in advance Cannis the bar manager sat and talked us through the menu and took our booking. On the day Cannis and the other staff couldn't of been more accommodating, we went early and put up balloons and our own birthday cake in the fridge. Then for lunch we had several different platters meat, cheese, vegetarian and fish between us with warm bread and butter which was lush and plenty of it. Also very reasonable priced. It was a hassle free afternoon which was very enjoyable. We will definitely be returning.

We walked from Broadstairs to Ramsgate and found this bar. All looked lovely from the outside - however as we visited during Covid we were disgusted with the bar and would not return. There was no-one to greet us at the entrance; no-one wiped the table or explained where - what we should do. We ordered pimms - they only had a small amount left - no mint/fruit etc - so weak it was terrible.

We asked to use the ladies toilet. There was no handwash in the toilet at all.

definitely would not return!
