We visited the RHDR on Tuesday, we arrived at the End of the Line at 1p.m and discovered they had no Jacket potatoes left. My wife is celiac so sandwiches, sausage rolls etc are of no use, the only option offered was a fried egg...and chips! Seriously, in the half term week to run out that early? There only appeared to be 3 staff manning the entire kitchen and people were waiting a long time for food, our egg &chips took 20 minutes. Apart from the Brittania Inn there is no other option at Dungeness so they have a moderately captive clientele. Not impressed.More

5 out of 5 food has been upgraded for sure with the new chef! Corkers have replaced the cheap sausages, the bacon was cooked to perfection! A huge improvement

We have been a few times for a breakfast, which was okay. This time it was excellent. The chef Richard/ Riccardo has vastly improved the quality of the ingredients. Korkers sausages and descent back bacon were served. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

Where to start? Service: the two ladies serving were both quite rude and shouldn't be people facing. When a gent before me in the queue asked for a pasty was told bluntly "run out", he asked for a specific sandwich and was told "self service,...go back and get it". He was blatantly not impressed. I asked for a cream tea and told they don't do them, however, they do sell all the ingredients but just not as an item. I went with this and my wife had one. I had a tea and a sausage roll. Absolutely nothing special and at £10.30, no way value for money. As a place at the end of the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway, it's well presented and clean with good facilities. Please train your staff to be be a bit more polite, either revisit your pricing or improve the quality and you have a winner. Hence only rated a 2.More

Good, modern cafe doubling as the station at the end of the RHD railway - the train pulled in as we were drinking our coffee. Reasonably coffee and OK sandwiches at a reasonable price

A smart new facility at the end of the light railway, however the cafe and toilets left a lot to be desired. The sandwiches were very dry, made with cheap bread and cheese. Surely it's not that difficult to make a decent sandwich! The scone...was also very dry. The coffee was from a machine, and tasteless, although a premium price was charged for it. On a positive note the staff seemed friendly, although not to a couple of young ladies, who got the wrong order, and were then treated with indifference by the staff. The ladies toilets were all blocked and the sinks filled with water, so unusable. The staff seemed to know about this but again seemed indifferent. Unhygienic and unacceptable. Such a shame as the RHDR is such an asset and the trains are operated by enthusiastic staff.More

Radically changed since our last visit to Dungeness back in 2003. Let's start with the positives. The extension / rebuilding works just fine. You could eat your snacks off the floor or any other surfaces in the New Loos. We are in 2022. When a...customer asks, "do you have anything suitable for someone with a severe intolerance to lactose" the correct answer is not, "No"! Fortunately our friends had purchased sandwiches before we travelled as a back up in case of need. One is also diabetic, so missing a meal is not an option. I am a Coffee Connoisseur, so found the large Mug of Americano with Cold Milk simply undrinkable! The Owner, Manager, Waitress assured me that real Coffee Beans had been used. I can only assume too mean a quantity. It was quite simply tasteless. Options at Dungeness are severely limited. Next time we visit we will be sure to bring both food and drink. Hayling SeagoonMore

Really friendly staff - good coffee - but probably the worse scone I’ve ever had - I only took two bites and put the rest in the bin - absolutely unheard of for me - it was so hard I didn’t know if it was...stale or poorly baked!More

Living not too far away we visit to walk the dog and drop in for a coffee. Usually with the dog and we sit in the garden to watch as the trains arrive. This time it was to meet some friends. We were all disappointed...that the kitchen was closed and all that was available was the pies and pasties in the hot cabinet. It was breakfast time and even though I like a Cornish Pasty but not then. Maybe lunchtime.More

Such a shame they are still not back to their old service and using Covid as an excuse to run a cut down one. Plastic cutlery no plates limited condiments. Cut down menu with increased prices.

This restaurant has so much potential. Large, modern, open kitchen. All that was on offer was fish and chips or pie and chips or snacks. I had a sausage roll which was dry, with a cheap unseasoned filling, and was completely uninspiring. The place is...clean, and well presented. This could be absolutely awesome, but it seriously needs to up its game.More

We called in for a coffee in the middle of a sunny afternoon. The establishment is Covid safe. There's an excellent, well marked one way system, mask must be worn, hand sanitiser is available and contacless payment is available. There was a good choice of...refreshments available and the staff were friendly and helpful. The coffee was very tasty and it was very enjoyable to sit outside in the sunshine. There was an added bustle when ever a train arrived. Ample free parking is also available right outside the restaurant.More

We visited the End of the Line Restaurant at Dungeness on a couple of occasions as part of a day out with some friends in May, we drove to Dungeness and there is ample free parking at the station though using the train is a...viable option. On the day of our visit no inside seating was available due to Covid 19 restrictions and patrons were served at the counter before taking their purchases outside. The café has an outside seating area primarily accessed from the platform though there was an open door leading from the café and we used this later on our second visit in the afternoon. On the day of our visit, the café had a reasonable range of refreshments, most of our party bought a round of sandwiches with either crisps, biscuits or cakes to bolster these and either tea or a soft drink. The staff serving seemed helpful enough. We used the café as a convenient place for refreshments whilst exploring the immediate area but it would also make an ideal stop for train passengers either starting, finishing or breaking their journeys here. It is pleasant to sit in the outside seating area and enjoy the solitude of the area ‘away from the madding crowd’ before the periodic excitement of arriving train and departing trains makes the area busy.More

A trip to Derek jarman's house while we're at Dungeness was a must however sadly the trip to the end of the line restaurant stroke coffee house was an unpleasant taste in my mouth. The staff were unwelcoming not friendly ,inattentive and to be frank...if we hadn't of waved at them to advise them that we were standing there waiting to order they would have carried on chatting.They looked straight through us like ghosts until my normally shy daughter said 'can we order please?'. I would like to think that this is just a blip as I would expect that after today there would be lots of people visiting and this type of establishment should be ready to welcome people after the year we've had with open arms.More

I’m not sure of the opening hours, but there are plenty of seats to sit outside both in the garden of the restaurant and on the platform itself. You don’t have to be going on the train.

When we visited there were dogs on leads and the staff provided clean metal water bowls in the garden seating area. Dogs are allowed on the train.
