We were staying nearby and had several takeaways. The freshly cooked fish is delicious, and the menu is varied. You can also eat in the restaurant.

We travel from London to Lenham once a month to taste and also enjoy the amazing fish plates in this restaurant. Every time we find a new surprise dishes with delicious Mediterranean taste from the chef there.

The restaurant is a modern venue with beamed & vaulted ceiling. Friendly .staff and reasonably priced menu including a special for pensioners. Open all hours and no problem when we arrived at 2pm which is not always the case elsewhere.

We ate cod and chips in the fish bar and had cold chips with some hot ones mixed in. Extremely disappointed. Sauce bottles sticky. We were not asked if our food was ok on paying. We won't be going back.

I had not been here before and so tried it out. True enough it is quite antiquated but the fish was cooked fresh and was piping hot. That's ok if you don't mind waiting. You can sit outside and enjoy the Summer sunshine! Cold drinks...More
