To keep it brief, I went here on the 21/09/2019. For dinner with family, sat upstairs in restaurant. Service was fantastic throughout. Food was lovely, we ate before live music but Motown being played was perfect accompaniment for our food. Decor was great. Really good meal out and place stands out as one of the nice easier going establishments in whitstable it’s a good place for locals to go to to escape the usual pompous overpriced restaurants now taking over the town.

Visited the Rock Lodge for the first time last night and I can safely say we won't be going there again any time soon!!
Door staff were friendly and the band playing sounded good but getting a drink was impossible!!!
My husband stood at the bar with money in his hand waiting to be served for over 15 minites!!
Bar staff were just serving the people they wanted to serve regardless of who was waiting or whose turn it was, and another member of bar staff was just standing chatting to the security guard!!
After 15 minutes we decided to leave and try somewhere else where we actually got a drink!!
Shame really as the band playing sounded good!!

Visited this unusual ski lodge styled place for a meal whilst staying in whitsable recently and had an excellent meal and enjoyed the blues music being played in the bar below. Friendly service too. Highly recommended!

Visit here with my cousin Julie, great atmosphere, very good staff and the food was delicious. We had chicken skewer and Moules Mariniere top off by dancing the night away to the great band.
