Lovely meal tonight at one of the best restaurants in whitstable. The fresh fish of the day was delicious, recommended by front of house lady Debbie who is obviously passionate about food. The espresso martinis to follow were the perfect digestif!

Hi, I'm afraid that as we are such a small restaurant, it isn't practical for us to accept dogs. Kind regards, Caroline
