I booked the table in the week and when we got there they had no record of it but they did seat us down. The menu looked good and varied. We ordered starters and main courses. Before we had our starters the main courses came out ! They were returned to the kitchen and then our starters came out. I... More

Love! Love ! It's a great place to have coffee, a snack and a meal. I love sitting looking out of the window and watching the sea. They have a lovely coffee/snack bar to grab a drink and sit in comfort and chat. They offer Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner and it's all great. I will be returning.

Located in central Broadstairs and offering dinner till late. Setting is good with an outside seating area to the rear. Food is not too bad. A little 'weatherspoons' but decent enough and fast service and friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit for food when staying in or around Broadstairs.

We didn't stay at the hotel but were lucky enough to enjoy lunch outside on the terrace, with sea view, on an unseasonally warm February day. I'd describe the fare as high quality pub food (although it would appear with more refined dinner options), including Steak and Ale Pie, Sausages with Bubble and Squeak and, in our case, the best...

The service was good, the food was good, large portions so don't order bread as well, otherwise you will be stuffed. Lovely views and very relaxing. We stayed for coffee and watched the world go by. If your in Broadstairs its a... More

Been for lunch a number of times now, lovely recently refurbished bar with stunning sea views. The food was lovely pub grub food which was good value for money. Dogs are allowed in the restaurant as well, which was handy.

Chips were under-cooked. Fish batter was soft and fish tasteless. Mushy peas were cold. Have had much better there. Restaurant was empty so no excuses. Poor value for money.
