Our hotel recommended Whale'S bone. From the tiny exterior store front it looked slightly questionable as at glance we thought it was closed. However, once inside we were welcomed by Jamie and Gerrard who were very friendly. It wasn't just a dinner, but an experience...More

An interesting ambience with really great, fresh food on the menu. The décor is what I would describe as funky, urban chic, but not over done. The atmosphere is that of a friendly, small restaurant where the chefs really know how to cook fish. Knowing...More

We did their 'brown bag' special sandwich of the day and it was spectacular. Bit of a lineup but it moves fairly quickly. Picnic tables outside; however, a street view of Kent isn't the most picturesque view! Have been dying to have the chance to...More

There is nothing strange about restaurants such as this to not have a menu online. They serve very fresh seafood so it often has to do with what was available that day. I never had the fish and chips, when you go somewhere... More
