Description: The Cliffe Kitchen is at the heart of the White Cliffs Hotel, it's the sort of place that's worth a detour if passing through Dover. The place attracts locals who often drop in for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner with friends in the often buzzing and lively atmosphere. There's daily changing Blackboard Menu with The Catch of The Bay and more. There's also a Seasonally Changing Menu with some perennial favourites such as Fish & Chips in beer batter with real proper chips and mushy peas, 28 day hung Kentish Beef with Béarnaise, Romney Marsh Lamb, Monkshill Farm Pork Chops, Rope-grown Mussels in scrumpy and more.

This restaurant was quite excellent: the service and seafood and white house wine all very satisfactory. But guests with children prancing about after eight o'clock - no fault of the management - detract from the experience. Car parking is in front of the restaurant - OK, if cramped - and at a car park at the back, which requires a walk along a rather slippery, windy, badly lit and muddy path. Suggest the ladies are deposited outside the restaurant while the poor male driver gets his shoes (this season at any rate) a little dirty.

We all had roast beef which was thickly sliced and served with very tasty fresh vegetables, roast potatoes and home made yorkshire pud. The best roast dinner I've had in a restaurant for years. We will definitely be going back !

Made a late booking while touring the area and not finding an attractive enough place for Sunday lunch elsewhere. As we were staying locally and they offered an interesting alternative to a roast for the fussy member of our party we booked for 45 minutes later. Very enjoyable roast lunch though we are not quite sure what the flatbread added to the sausage dish. Would definitely eat here again.

We ate here whilst staying at it's sister hotel.
Lovely staff, but like it's sister restaurant, not much vegetarian options.
That said what was on the menu was delicious & the price was more than reasonable.
Would definitely recommend a visit.

Went here for an early evening meal. Excellent food, reasonably priced and good sized portions. The staff were very friendly and helpful - would definitely go again.
