Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We think something has changed since we last ate there about 2 years ago. Previously the place was packed with an extensive menu, but there was plenty of seating inside and out and the menu has definitely changed. The menus are now on a laminated...piece of paper.The building is looking quire tired and even the metal pub sign wasn't hanging. This could of course be down for repair and the ipkeep of an old building must be extensive and ongoing. The food we ordered was good. Some of the younger staff need a bit more training as one of them seems quite slow and seem unsure of what they are meant to be doing. We will still pop in when down that way but just aware it's not the same as it used to be.More

Hadn’t been here in years so it was great to drive by and see it is still a thriving pub and restaurant. A lovely sunny afternoon spot for lunch and the car park was full with bikers and walkers on a pit stop - always...a good sign. Lovely bright and airy room in the main bar with a great selection of drinks ace to see the Kent ales but also as the designated driver this place has a decent selection of non-alcoholic and ultra low alcohols stout, cider, lager and an IPA alongside the usual fare of soft drinks. My partner opted for the lunch time special cod and chips which arrived in no time at all. Cooked to perfection with a lovely light and crisp batter. I opted for their house burger…. Never seen anything like it, towering on a slate tile as it was brought over. Good quality burger, cooked perfectly and with a nice fresh salad, onion rings and a hash brown. It beat me…. I managed to cleave it in half and demolish that, but the second half got the better of me. Would definitely order it again, but skip having breakfast before hand 😊 Lovely staff on hand; swift to serve at the bar and made sure we had any sauces or condiments we needed. Thank you for a lovely, spur of the moment, lunch! I shall definitely be returning and bringing friends and family here.More

Hadn’t been here for years; but looked to go out for lunch on Good Friday with extended family, so prebooked a couple of weeks in advance just in case it was busy. Confusion over booking upon arrival, but was resolved after a few minutes. Good...selection of beers at bar, including local offerings which was great. Menu we looked at online on the website wasn’t what was on offer on the restaurant (more limited, and presented differently to the website). Food order placed at bar, and plenty of staff to assist with order. Food itself very good; fresh and piping hot, (small fish too large for the seniors but they definitely enjoyed it none the less). Worth a visit if you’re visiting the lighthouse, the miniature railway or the RNLI lifeboat station.More

Visited with my family for a weekday lunch, I had scampi, chips & minted mushy peas, it was delicious, freshly cooked and crispy. All 4 of our meals were lovely. Would definitely go again.

Visited Dungeness on 28/12, followed signs to pub, not expecting it to be open, but yes it was. We were only ones in there initially and there was a lovely log fire, which we sat next to. Asked if we could have food and was...told, if we were happy to wait 30 mins, then yes, so we sat and had a lovely hot chocolate and chatted to very friendly barman. We ordered fish finger sandwich, which came with chips and salad, couldn’t fault it, the fish was battered and like a goujon, plenty of it in the sandwich. Clean toilets too. By the time we left, the place was filling up. Our experience was very good, our expectations to be truthful weren’t that high, but we were grateful that it was open at least, but overall nothing to complain about.More

Avoid. Totally Underwhelming .Boring pub menu. I had Whitebait. I like a light dusting of flour or a light tempura batter. It was straight out the freezer pre breaded with a hard crust. Very unappealing. The calamari was also not freshly prepared. My son had...haddock and chips. Chips were soft and floury and the fish in batter was oily and tasteless. Terrible food.More

Pizzas burnt. Small portions, no bread with starters. Old oil used making calamari unpleasant. A complete shambles and overpriced for the quality of the food.

The Geezers from Bow, East London, had a brilliant meal in here last Tuesday. The cod and chips was first class. Dungeness is a strange and fascinating place to visit. We arrived on the 1/3 sized steam railway.

We had to wipe our table down prior to eating as it was very sticky, the table was black ! We waited over 50 mins for our food. My food was not as advertised so I had no food. My Husband's pizza was very burnt...on one side and had hardly any pepperoni on it. More staff needed as the one person trying to manage the bar and food orders is very overworked.More

I used to love coming here but it’s become too overpriced. I had a basic fish and chips and it was £19.50 - ridiculous on the sea front. They said they ran out of the smaller sized fish. My daughter previously had a kids pizza...and it was great but this time it had shrunk to the size of a digestive biscuit. They are in an amazing spot and I’m sure can charge these prices but I really question should they?! There is lots of competition nearby and next time I’ll look there sadly.More
