Super pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was fantastic. All three of us were really happy with our different choice. The salmon start was delicious the lamb main plentiful and the chocolate fondant to die for!

My partner and I had the tasting menu. When we have had this before we always had a choice between two kinds of meat for main course (which was chosen before being seated at your table). However last night there was no choice! It was just Lamb.
The salmon course could have been slightly bigger ( it was the size of my little finger nail) it was so very small that we could barely taste it.
They were very busy being the first night back inside after Covid restrictions so the service was slower than usual. Overall though it was lovely to get back out and eat great food.

Very, very nice food and service... we were there on a very cold cloudy day during partial restrictions which meant we had to dine in the garden... I'm sure this is a much more delightful option once things return to normal :)

So lovely! Last minute booking as so many outside dining places in Broadstairs were booked up but such a hidden gem and fabulous find. Amazing food, incredible service and they made it extra special by giving us a little dessert treat for our anniversary. Will definitely be back next time we are in Broadstairs!

Staff are so helpful and friendly. Garden setting pleasant but all depends on weather.
I enjoyed my fish and chips very fresh and tasty, prices reasonable. Took my Mum and Dad for lunch after not seeing them for 6 Months. Good outdoor space not overcrowded compared to near the Beach, peaceful we all enjoyed it.

Was a great night, attentive staff and good food. Staff were not too intrusive and everyone was good natured. Callum knew his wines really well and even made time to engage in conversation about them. We weren’t rushed and had our table for over three hours. Made my partners 50th very enjoyable. Must go here more often and would highly recommend to others.

We started with a wonderful cocktail in the bar, made by Lilly. We were then taken through to the restaurant for dinner, which was fabulous. One of the best meals we’ve had in a while. Service throughout was attentive without being annoying. My only slight negative was that the white wine could have been a little colder, although my wife said it was fine! I’d recommend a visual here for dinner.

It's s nice restaurant. We've booked this hotel and restaurant as a venue and it was very good, and excellent value for a week. For a single meal perhaps less so but lovely atmosphere and staff and a choice outside the usual tourist footfall. An option of one course would be better value. Perhaps they will introduce this.

We ordered a bottle of white wine & it wasn’t chilled. We weren’t offered a wine bucket. The soup was very watery & tasteless. No offer of 2nd bread & had to ask for it. We were informed that the roast beef would be pink but it came medium well done. Service was attentive but the restaurant lack atmosphere.
