Great chicken shop. Staff mega friendly and accommodating (we came with a new born). Super food and the views of the sea through their gigantic front window are spectacular. Willbe back

Had a family meal with ages ranging from two to seventy. Everyone enjoyed their meal with imaginative, well presented food. The children had fun in the downstairs play area which meant the adults could enjoy a peaceful drink or coffee. Friendly helpful staff. Loved it.

Right on the seafront and with a picture postcard view, this is a great find in Margate. The food is "better burgers" with a twist and the menu includes pulled pork and lobster. I had the pork and it was absolutely delicious, but if you are veggie, fear not, as the star of the menu for me was the Asian Coleslaw, to the extent that I can't stop thinking about it and may have to travel back from London just to have some more. Also, I'd like to try the lobster as if the food we had is anything to go by, it will be fantastic. Wine is help yourself from a barrel, so while this is a great family restaurant, it is also grown up enough for couples and business. The decor and ambience is upmarket seaside and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone, and would travel back just to eat there again.

Recently visited Roost for the first time in a while and the first time since the new management put a new menu in place.

The menu is a little more varied than the original and I went for the Roost Dog, crayfish and chorizo in a brioche bun with sweet potato fries. The Roost Dog was really tasty and definitely worth trying. My wife chose the chicken and sweet potato fries and that was still really good.

A real bonus is that they have doughnuts from One In The Oven and we took a couple those to take away.

Good menu, good food, all good.

I use TA wherever I go as a guide. It didn't let me down.
Roost was just around the corner from our hotel.
What a gem.
Ladies serving are lovely.
Food was great for me and mini me.
All fresh.
Good choices of alcohol.
Loved the Cajun chicken burger and brownie for pudding.
Didn't take the option but it was there to play ping pong or read the books whilst they cook your food.
