“Family Sunday lunch of the best kind”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Visited for a family birthday and booked for the 12.30 sitting. Hearts dropped when we walked into a packed restaurant but how wrong can you be? The service was probably some of the best we have experienced at any type of restaurant; everyone is made to feel both welcome and valued. There is no rush and the food is great, very good value and something for all tastes. We will return.

“Always But Always First Class!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I visit Broadstairs at least twice a month on business and each time I go there I do my best to get to the Tartar Frigate.
The Bar downstairs is full of local history and a good selection of beer and ale.
The food served is simply super, all fresh and great chioce of menu.
Lemmony and the staff are great also!!

“Go Upstairs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The downstairs pub is pretty average- but dont be put off...
Upstairs there is plenty of Chintz and Anaglypta- but the food and service is fab.

The fish is locally caught and cooked to perfection.
A great place

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Had a fantastic meal last night, the staff are so helpful and friendly they really make you feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble and they are very attentive without being overbearing. The meal, mainly fish, after all it is a fish restaurant, was excellent. The menu has changed slightly and is still very good. I belive this to be possibly the best place to eat in Broadstairs and one of the very best in Kent. Well worth a visit. Special thanks to Lemini the manageress for making us welcome.
