“Good Value at the Hoy”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

My first visit to the Hoy which is just opposite the Turner Centre was a real success.

The service was particularly good and as was the food. I had Tempura King Prawns whilst my friend had the Camembert. My Lamb Shank was delicious as apparently was the Sea Bass. For the quality of food and such good service the price of about £20 per head inclusive of several drinks was very good value.

Certainly one to revisit

“English Roast Beef”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Was entertaining guests from the USA this weekend. They decided they would like to sample traditional English Roast Beef. I bought then to The Hoy and we were not disappointed. Beef cooked to perfection, potatoes, cooked in duck fat were outstanding. Service was swift, polite and attentive, thank you so much.

Came to the hoy for sunday luch. I had the poor. The food was good, and the service was polite and quick. The veg came in serving dishes, so we could have as much or little as we wanted.

“Decent enough food, variable service”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I've been a few times and service varies from very slow and off-hand to pretty good, with no apparant rhyme or reason. Lunches are of a decent standard, although vegetarian options are very limited. Beer is well kept and mainly local (Gadd's). It's handy for the Turner contemporary Gallery, and if you want more than a cafe, eating options in Margate are pretty limited. Not bad.
