Popped in for a late lunch after hiking around the cliffs. Needed something cheap and easy and this was a pleasant surprise. Lovely staff, and delicious hot roast with fresh veges. Felt like a home cooked meal. Didn't take too long which was good because we needed to continue along our travels.

The two of us wanted a lunch including real vegetables like cabbage , and I thought of Chaplins just off the Market Square. The ground floor restaurant has waitress service and a corridor of tables each side of the door. Service is more than twice the speed of my last venue, with the kitchen just behind the central till with a servery opening. Soon after midday the restaurant was filling up steadily, with a slight space problem for someone bringing in a pushchair. We are not asked to state if anywhere is disabled friendly, but someone in a wheelchair might prefer to eat elsewhere, although the food was excellent My friend and I had cottage pie and veg, he a glass of water , myself a lemon and lime. A good range of hot meals on a printed menu and not over expensive, Offered a sweet but declined. Nobody coming in thought to close the door, so beware the draught until the staff notice!

We liked the food, service, including how the manger ensure everyone was being attended to
This cafe is a cut above the greasy spoon moniker,without trying to be outstanding. though some spaces are tight, we wouldn't try at peak times

Don,t come here if you are expecting pretentious food but do come here if you want good home cooked tasty food followed by a decent cup of coffee . If you are here for the traditional lunch unless you have a massive appetite have the small roast then you will have room for the dessert. (always a homemade fruit crumble or pie on the specials board)

Had a lovely roast turkey dinner here, followed by apple and raspberry crumble. Beautiful home made food, served hot as it should be. Great little place to eat in Dover, and it doesnt cost the earth.
