The views were magnificient, although it was a very cold day, and the main door kept opening, and taking a lone time to close.

This needs to be sorted out!

We ate here to celebrate a family birthday with six adults and five young children for a Sunday carvery. The service was very good, with the children well catered for. It would have been nice for waiters to check how things were, offer more drinks or just be a little more engaged. Food wise, there was an excellent choice of starters, followed by a very good carvery. We were all very full without anyone overloading their plate as there was more than enough meat provided! Deserts were fairly standard but of the quality you would expect.

You certainly would not leave hungry or disappointed from this restaurant but service could be improved.

Four of us had lunch at the Sunday Carvery on 19 January. Three courses for £17.95. Very good choice of starters, 3 meats and a selection of desserts. Because the room was quite warm the desserts were a little of the dry side as they were not covered up. Pianist played during lunch which was very pleasant. It was lovely to look outside and see the ferries coming in and out at the port of Dover. All in all a lovely lunch.

We ate at The Waterfront Restaurant on a windy, rainy midweek evening, but the meal gave us a wonderful warm glow.... it was a real treat. We shared a starter of chicken liver parfait, which was smooth, creamy and delicious. To follow, I had the vegetable wellington, my companion had the lamb cutlets, which, apparently were too good to share! The wellington pastry was just flaky enough and the accompanying garden vegetables were cooked to perfection. For dessert we had creme brulee and chocolate fondant. Again, the creme brulee did not disappoint, rich, creamy and delicious, sadly the chocolate fondant was, I think, too like the Gu dessert to be anything else. But, looking at the menu today, it seems to have been removed... Good call! Apart from that the meal was fantastic, the restaurant lovely, and the staff excellent. I have already recommended The Waterfront to several friends.
