“Love Peens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We regularly visit Broadstairs and always eat in Peens at least one during our stay. The food is superb, great basic menu with delicious and interesting specials, their pork is especially good and their Sunday roasts are the best. The staff are very friendly and the bar/restaurant has a friendly cozy atmosphere. During the day it is suited to both families or just adults, but come the evening it is more of an adult only bar and restaurant.

“Regular Haunt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

I eat at Peen's more frequently than any other restaurant in Broadstairs, a couple of times a week on average. The food is excellent, service excellent and a lovely atmosphere. Of course being local and regular helps but most appear to enjoy and the returning customers are numerous - one comes to know faces if not names. It is also an excellent bar. The roasts on Sunday are a favourite.

“Gastro Bar near the Sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Always enjoy Peens, been going regularly since moving here 4 years ago. In all we have been about 8 or 10 times. sometimes as a couple or with a family group.
The venue is smallish(long and narrow) but big on charm. we love having lunch there...try several of the starters between you, a group or a couple. Tasty and different and freshly prepared! The specials board is always fun, but unfortunately they sometimes forget to remove an item which is sold out.
We notice plenty of families eating there together, lovelt atmosphere and great value.
Peens is right by the sea, but a hedge obscures what would be a great view of Viking Bay.
The toilet facilities are always clean as is the restaurant itself.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

The menu is varied, seasonal and interesting. Never had a bad meal here. The bar has a great atmosphere with a generous selection of wines, beers and cocktails. Friendly staff and perfect for meeting up with friends, group meals or couples. Love it and return often.
