mainly middle aged older couples seem to frequent on a regular basis, the bar itself is quite modern and cosmopolitan but each time we went in the atmosphere was a bit boring and lack lustre

Very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Wine is expensive for
a large glass but worth it. Good Food served also

We visited here about 12 months ago and it was amazing. On our return to Broadstairs this weekend we booked a table for our first night, sadly the quality is not what it was. It was not overly busy and there were plenty of staff working but no one seemed overly eager to want to serve/look after us. We ordered steak and chips and that's exactly what we got - a piece of steak on a plate and a bowl of chips - no salad/garnish/sauce etc.... The food was fine but you expect a little bit more customer service/better experience for the price, and due to our previous experience our expectations were high. Not sure whether the management has changed but sadly Peen's has lost it's sparkle.

Albar one visit when we sent back a dish which was clearly chargrilled beyond belief and then had the chef argue with us via a waitress very nice service and food. Bit flouncy but good venue. Nice daytime menu but could be more accessible for the day to day punter. £5.50 for a glass of wine bit excessive

We go here a lot and the food is always great, good house wine and beers on tap, busy Friday and Saturday eves. Lots of fishy specials too. Staff aren't bad either!
