We booked for 3 people at 6.00 pm for the verandeh and greatly enjoyed three courses each whilst watching the comings and goings in the harbour and along the promenade. By 7.00 pm half the restaurant had been filled by one coach party and by 7.30 pm the other half filled by another coach party but despite being very busy... More

Went there for the first time and not impressed with the Sunday Carvery quality. We had the beef which was soft to be fair, but the rest was a disaster in my book. Roast potatoes kept in a sealed steamy container to keep them warm but soggy too. All of the other vegetables suffered the same plight, too soggy and... More

Went here with my hubby for Afternoon Tea recently. The tea was very nice and a lovely selection of sandwiches. Salmon, chicken etc. We didn't eat all our cakes and asked to take them home, we had seen somebody else ask to take their 'left overs' home too. The young man didn't return for a while and when he did... More

Thank you! some really nice comments regarding your afternoon tea visit. I am sorry to hear about the confusion with organising a box to take away the items that were left. This is strange as it is such a common request. We will look into how we were a little puzzled. Our new afternoon tea menu is due to be... More

Expansive views of the English Channel attracted us to this nice attractive restaurant. We tried the Indian platter and the medium done Kentish pheasant. Both very well made.

From the moment we arrived in the restaurant until we left the staff were delightful. They were very friendly and professional. They made us feel special. We were seated in the conservatory that runs along the front... More

The choice of food was impressive, beautifully presented and very tasty. Very good value for money On our next cruise from Dover we will return. Be aware that the key roundabout to find the hotel on Tom Tom, has been removed, so anyone else with an unupdated Tom Tom like us can find it very confusing. Car Parking for cruise... More

Thank you for a lovely review. The road behind us is a nightmare at the moment they are re-designing the whole stretch, it is due to be complete soon! We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon, and hopefully for dinner! Kind Regards, Ashley Rickman Food & Beverage Manager More
