Great little find just tucked down a side street. Very nice people welcomed us as soon as we set foot through the door. Good, quick service and the food was very yummy. We sat outside in the small decked area which was very pleasant. My only very little gripe was that a "check back" would have been good to see... More

Home cooking is the order of the day. With a selection to satisfy all tastes whether that be savory or sweet things. A little outside sitting area is inviting on warm summer days (when they appear!)

Best pie for a long time with freshly cooked vegetables, very nice thank you! Down a side alley you nearly miss this little gem, with its friendly waitress and freshly prepared food - it was yummy!!

Food is excellent provided by lovely people. But they do need to upgrade their toilet facilities. Glad to have been of help.

We had a quite lunch and the food was OK, big portions and good salad to accompany the main. The place was nice and clean and the staff friendly. It's a good thing that it is off the high street so it wasn't crowded.

We visited here during our break we was happy with the quality of food, really good home style cooking and crispy bacon (which i love). We ate a full english breakfast and really enjoyed it, service was quick and the lady was very polite and genuine. Recommended for a lunch or breakfast visit

The family and I were down in Whitstable for a mini holiday and was recommended Howard's by a friend who lives locally! I'm so glad she did! We knew it must be popular as it was jam packed when we arrived. The ladies running the show were so lovely and offered us a table outside. There were colouring books to... More
