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

Went there yesterday (Sunday) for the first time and had the best full English we've tasted in Broadstairs. Will be back again for definite. Thank you for a good start to the day.

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

Nice location near the seafront - and the interior and staff seemed nice, but the food was petty average and a little over-priced. The music was very loud - which wasn't too much of a problem for us - as we had a relatively noisy toddler with us, but would be difficult to hold a conversation over dinner!

Great service, chic little place! Try the English mojito- awesome cocktail! Peri peri chicken burger (no bread as I'm odd like that) was amazing! Really good find and I would recommend it to anyone!

This bar is all things to all people. Lovely for families during the day with a great menu, perfect for a glass of wine in the afternoon, and in the evening a lovely chilled bar with a great atmosphere and food. Had the best steak ever, divine cocktails and all with a great view! Couldn't recommend enough.

Thank tiffpalmer
