Arranged at short notice a lunch break for our group of 15 cyclists. Staff gave us a very warm welcome and had prepared a table laid out for us all. Service and bar menu food excellent. All of us very happy and refuelled for our return to Reculver. Must repeat it soon.

Great Food, Great Service, Great Place! Highly recommended. One of my favourite places to eat and it just happens to be 15 minutes from where i live, which is even better! If your a golfer then you'll be in heaven, as it also has 3 fantastic 9 hole courses.... 27 holes of pure links golf!

Here is an exceptionally good chef. Excellent by Central London brasserie standards. The service, however, was woeful. That was not the fault of the staff but rather those who supervise them. My wife and I went out to lunch with our son to celebrate his birthday. We were slightly delayed by the M25 traffic and phoned ahead with our exact... More

Apart from experiencing one of England's outstanding golf courses at Princes GC ,what differentiated this as one special golf destination ,was the wonderful surprise to enjoy the excellent cuisine presented by Chef Ricky Smith .

We visited the brasserie on the bay at Sandwich for lunch yesterday - 2 courses £12.95, 3 courses £15.95. The meal was outstanding with friendly service in beautiful surroundings. We did not have a starter but pheasant terrine with homemade chutney or seared scollops with black pudding sounded lovely. We both had wild mallard which consisted of two melt in... More

We used our gourmet card and were told we had to have the 3 course meal but they omitted to tell us we can only use the gourmet card on the main course even though it was a 3 course set menu. They therefore charged us for dessert and starter. We have never experienced this before after 10 years of... More

One of our frequent places to eat, especially when we are in the mood for fish and chips, which is always good. We have tried a couple of other fair-to-middling meals here, but we always go back to the fish and chips. Love going on a beautiful day so we can sit outside the Brasserie and watch the golfers.

We had sunday lunch here and were surprised to find we were the only diners for most of the meal as it was very good and deserved better attendance. The location is a bit remote but well worth the journey with scenic views over the sea and the golf course. Service and food quality were both very good. We would... More
