Have eaten here many times over the years. The service is brilliant. The lad who served us was helpful polite and charming. The food was very good and quick. The owner came out to see us and he was polite and chatty with a humour. Love this place as it caters for all ages. Clean toilets as well.

We have been to this restaurant a few times on our trips to Broadstairs & the food has always been of a high standard. Unfortunately this was not the case when we popped in for Cod & chips twice last Saturday evening. The food looked lovely on arrival but once my partner cut into his cod he said "this isn't... More

Love coming here. Have been coming here for nearly 20 years and although don't manage to get here often it never fails to please. Had a delicious roast lamb dinner and the roast potatoes are to die for. Lovely friendly waitress and good service

We arrived on a very windy cold day and was greeted so warmly. The fish and chips were the best we've had in ages accompanied by an excellent bottle of wine. We can highly recommend eating here but be careful of the opening times as they are a but restricted.

Went on a chilly autumn afternoon, so it wasn't busy. Staff were polite and attentive, and the food decent. Bartered cod was very light and fluffy and the homemade chips nice, but not excellent. Place was nicely decorated and clean (except for a radiator which needed a wipe). Prices seemed a touch high for fish and chips, but not enough... More

We picked this cafe as it looked inviting from the outside and had a good childrens menu to keep my toddler happy. The two waitresses were very pleasant but that is all I can say positively I'm afraid. We ordered two prawn salads and a childrens sausage and chips and then waited nearly half an hour for our food. All... More

We had a lovely lunch here on Sunday on our way home from a weekend away with my parents. What a lucky find as we hadn't had chance to check out any reviews beforehand. There's a very good choice on the menu, the portions are big (unfortunately we couldn't finish but were offered a 'doggy bag'), our food was hot... More
