The service was excellent. However we were so disappointed with the choice on the menu. This used to be a destination restaurant. There was very little choice of fish dishes. This was the only time I have ever known my husband to send a dish back as inedible. We have been married for 37 years! The pie was delicious, but... More

Stopped here for a drink on a Sunday afternoon while out for a walk. Great views across the channel, really nice place to sit down and watch the ships go by. The staff were really friendly. We didn't eat here but the food looked really good, and it was very busy. Will be back for a lunch in the summer.

We called in for lunch on Monday, a beautiful day and the place was packed. We ordered drinks and when we found a free table outside ordered food. The food came and it was very good but!!! The dirty plates and bowl that were on our table when we first sat down were still there when we had finished our... More

After strolling the cliffs, we drove down to the beach and found this hidden gem. The decor was as amazing as the food. The staff was extremely friendly and helped this groups of Yanks celebrate Thanksgiving in the most wonderful way, with FISH & CHIPS!

This was our second visit after their refurbishment. Have been coming here for years but have to say that Shepherd Name and new managers have done a fantastic job. Food last night was absolutely delicious, we all had the set menu where 3courses for£15 was excellent value. Our friends who have not been there before were very impressed with the... More

We've been here several times. But after new management it's not as good as we liked it. This time we were here for coffee and cake, as we were walking along the cliffs. The cake was on the menu (as the simple cakes had run out), so we sort of had to choose a dessert-cake. And that was priced as... More

Apparently this place has just been refurbished and certainly is very smart, warm and cosy. The staff are very friendly and helpful, our food was very good. My Partner had the burger and I had the belly pork. It is in the most wonderful location, right on the sea edge, we absolutely loved it and will be going again

Having walked from Dover to this location we were lucky enough to get a table. Again we were greeted by the staff, and placed our order. As has been said the menu has changed and we miss the crab and seafood, however it has a varied menu. And has specials on the board. Nice selection of cask beers, and wine.... More
