We've really enjoyed eating at Peens in the past, the food was always so good. But this Sunday was a huge disappointment. The waitress was lovely, as always, and very accommodating of our autistic son. But some of the food.... eugh. The steak meal was okay, and the baked potato with chilli – well, you can't do that much to... More

Where to begin. Food took an eternity to arrive and when it did... 1. Was served a ciabatta around half the size of other people eating and 2. Terrible caff style frozen chips . Seriously bad. And painfully slow.

Had a really lovely meal. Atmosphere was great and chef had no issues slightly adjusting 2 of the dishes on the menu for us. Would definitely recommend

Having been to Peens before it changed hands and the food always being of good standard, we stopped by while in broadstairs at the weekend, and ordered tomato soup £5 each and some whitebait and drinks. When the soup arrived and I tasted it, it was clearly Heinz tinned cream of tomato, which is unmistakable in flavour and appearance. We... More

We used to use Peens a lot - countless weekends spent as relaxed family / couple with excellent brunches or lunches, chilled music and lovely food, great to spend an hour or two here and always brought visiting friends and family - then you had to book to guarantee a table. All that has sadly been completely lost - replaced... More

Peens has new owners, and sadly I will not be returning to what used to be my favourite restaurant and bar in Broadstairs. I don't know if the new owners ever went to Peens before, but it was a great restaurant for fabulous breakfasts/brunches, lunches and dinners, as well as being a great bar in the evening. I used to... More

Went there on Saturday evening, it was quite busy but not overcrowded. The service was good and the bar manager was very friendly. The main problem was the food, it was bland, fatty and unappetising. I know that it has been recently taken over so I really hope it improves. The location is excellent, the interior could do with sorting... More

Went there yesterday (Sunday) for the first time and had the best full English we've tasted in Broadstairs. Will be back again for definite. Thank you for a good start to the day.

We hadn't planned on coming here but as we passed the menu caught our eye and the place seemed tidy and busy but not too busy. The food was lovely and the service was friendly and prompt. Would definitely return. Thanks to all.
