Visited with 8 other family members for a catch-up post-Christmas meal. Everyone was delighted with their food, between a mixture of fish and chips, steaks, the fish platter and a veggie burger. All food arrived promptly and hot! Desserts were also delicious. We had a lovely large table, sometimes as a bigger group we end up being shoved round the... More

Well came in here for dinner. Don't know why we bothered. It took 45 minutes to do our food, there was no one else ordering food. When we got it it was such a small meal. You would need a magnifying glass to find it. There were only 7 very small chips on the plate. I know because I counted... More

Good service and cheaper beers earlier on in the day with cheap meals for 2. Large spacious area and well equipped. Definitely worth a visit or two. Has a great view of the harbour and good place to wait for the bus especially if going Broadstairs direction (you look through the front window and run if a bus arrives)

Sitting gazing across the harbour and daydreaming. The only place for lunch has to be The Royal. The steak and ale pie is to die for. Never have I ever experienced such a meat filled feast. On a winters day it's the best .

Booked the attic bar above the Royal for a function. This place is amazing and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Everything we asked was done and the food was fantastic. Everything was presented perfectly and there was a great choice. A massive thank you to them for making our engagement party so great!!!

Stopped here when out with my parents who,live locally. Just had drinks as we were on our way to another restaurant, however we will give this a try as the food looked good and interesting and the prices seemed very fair as well. The place has been done up and is no longer the dark low area it was once.... More

Had a very cheap lunch which was excellent. They do a special , two meals for £6.50p. Four of us ate and had drinks for just over £20.We sat in the raised area looking over the harbour. Will certainly visit again when in the area.
