Walk passed many times and always looked busy, on our evening it was pretty quite, first class food, presented superbly. We all had different starters and main courses, followed by cheese, nothing disappointed. Decent choices of wine, we chose Rose & Red both great although a bit pricey. All in all a good evening. We will return

Decided to have lunch here last week after seeing Samphire had recently won an award. There wasn't anything that grabbed me especially from the menu but everything sounded tasty and interesting. I opted for the potato cake and my friend had the market fish. Both of us felt the food was simply okay, nothing to rave over and nothing spectacular... More

Just had a great breakfast here. My daughter had lovely pancakes - my wife a gorgeous English breakfast - my son a bacon sarnie and for me a baked egg with sausage and tomato peppers dish that was divine!! Very much recommend this lovely little restaurant.

Bank Holiday Sunday is not the best time to judge a restaurant . But they servied a excellent "Fish Pie", and considering they were extremely busy the service was very quick . And you should not go without trying the Stick toffee Pudding . Can't wait for a return visit.

The food was hearty and well cooked. That said, this restaurant is not cheap and the service was slapdash and, at times, rude. We won't be rushing back.

We saw it was #2 in Whitstable but were not prepared for such delicious food. We had a nice bottle of wine, expertly crafted fish entres and a wonderful desert. Generous portions and good value. I rarely give 5 stars but this place is a real treat!

Come here a lot for breakfast I always have the scrambled eggs which are beautiful and soft so hard to find restaurants that do them well, these are divine served on sourdough toast. Lovely coffee and hot chocolates too. Have had the English breakfast too which is superb, delicious sausage and bacon also bubble and squeak is a nice touch... More

Freshly squeezed orange juice and possibly the best scrambled eggs in Whitstable. Very accommodating of food allergy issues. Friendly service.
