I really wonder if the people that run the restaurant on the first floor of this pub are the friendliest in the world. They certainly seem to be! Add to that the really great and imaginative food and you are in seventh heaven. The specials never fail to delight. My wife and son went to the Tartar midweek in April.... More

Having read TripAdvisor reviews I was expecting a reasonable meal if not a good meal, I was very disappointed. Just poor food! My friend and I both had different Scallop starters, hers were overcooked mine were accompanied by flavourless, worryingly mushy, prawns which I left. My main course, Haddock served with chips, was not as good as the local, not... More

A nice place, good views with a nice menu and fair wine list. I feel if fully booked it would appear cramped as tables set extremely close to each other. We had 2 mains, one a la carte and the second a special. My Monkfish curry was a little bland, no heat whatsoever and just lacking any curry influence which... More

We were staying in the Thanet area and decided to try this restaurant as we wanted to try some local seafood. The décor is wonderfully old school and typically unpretentious and so is the food: generous portions, simple food, unfussy recipes. We started with some oysters (very fresh) and followed up with main courses of Bass and Skate, both of... More

Fantastic seafood platter and fantastic service. The grand platter was huge and the rose wine delicious. We will definitely be back soon.

Haven't been for some time, current reviews suggest it's pretty good, so chose to go at the end of Bank Holiday weekend. The menu is predictably fish/seafood. The setting is harbour based and attractive. The pub beneath sells excellent beers. I sampled the current guest ale at our table.....tremendous. The House wine list is reasonably priced, the food prices are... More

On our walk in the morning, we saw the fish being delivered and our dinner in the evening was fabulous. Oysters, mussels, Dover sole all zingy and fresh and cooked to perfection. The chef here knows exactly what he's doing. . Plus the ladies who served us were soooo lovely. But make sure you book ahead as it's very popular.

A 2 minute walk from our hotel (Bleak House) we dined on mouth watering seafood with stunning views from the 300 year old building. Excellent service by attentive staff made this an enjoyable experience on two consecutive evenings.
