Having been to Peens before it changed hands and the food always being of good standard, we stopped by while in broadstairs at the weekend, and ordered tomato soup £5 each and some whitebait and drinks. When the soup arrived and I tasted it, it was clearly Heinz tinned cream of tomato, which is unmistakable in flavour and appearance. We... More

We used to use Peens a lot - countless weekends spent as relaxed family / couple with excellent brunches or lunches, chilled music and lovely food, great to spend an hour or two here and always brought visiting friends and family - then you had to book to guarantee a table. All that has sadly been completely lost - replaced... More

Peens has new owners, and sadly I will not be returning to what used to be my favourite restaurant and bar in Broadstairs. I don't know if the new owners ever went to Peens before, but it was a great restaurant for fabulous breakfasts/brunches, lunches and dinners, as well as being a great bar in the evening. I used to... More

Went there on Saturday evening, it was quite busy but not overcrowded. The service was good and the bar manager was very friendly. The main problem was the food, it was bland, fatty and unappetising. I know that it has been recently taken over so I really hope it improves. The location is excellent, the interior could do with sorting... More

We hadn't planned on coming here but as we passed the menu caught our eye and the place seemed tidy and busy but not too busy. The food was lovely and the service was friendly and prompt. Would definitely return. Thanks to all.

Came here with my friend for a quick lunch that turned into a 3 hour long lunch. Don't come here regularly but it's always a safe bet for good food and nice atmosphere. It was quiet and the service was great. Cocktails were fab and the paella for the two of us was massive and we couldn't finish it all.... More

Never been before so had no idea what to expect , we didn't even look it up we just walked in after seeing the people's plates sat outside. Anyway glad we called in as it's a very nice chilled bar & restaurant with friendly staff. Our meals were very large and tasted good. And I think they represent the prices... More

We originally came in for the halloumi salad that we saw someone eating the day before, but instead we ended up ordering the vegetable burger. The wait for the food seemed very long, but it probably took about 20 minutes in all. It was honestly alright, a nice meal. The menu could do with being a bit more descriptive, honestly.... More
