“Excellent as usual!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We've eaten in Riggins many times and the food has always been lovely. It may not be a la carte and the decor isn't trendy wine bar mimimalistic, but lobster I had tonight was better than any I've had ever (and the dressed crab starter and homemade apple meringue sponge were lovely too!). Thank you Mark!

“Delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Lovely atmosphere! It's the best place for delicious fish and lobster but also there are other options like chicken dishes and T-bone steak! Homemade sweets are yummy especially the Lemon Cheesecake!! Kind staff and friendly chef. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

“Floats my boat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Hugely likeable restaurant specialising in fish but with a great choice of other honestly cooked dishes.The decor is dated but if anything that adds to the overall experience.Food is very generous,excellent value and expertly cooked.If Riggings was in Whitstable it would put some of the more pretentious places there to shame.

“Lovely, Welcoming & Excellent Food ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely quant restaurant tucked away down one of Herne Bays many side streets.
I've been coming to eat here for many years and the food and service never seem to disappoint. Every visit is very welcoming and whether you're into your fresh fish (locally caught where possible) or meat dishes there's something on the menu for everyone.
I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good hearty portions at a more than reasonable price with excellent customer service to match.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Have been to this restaurant many times and have always had great food and friendly service. A must try for fish lovers as there is a large choice of freshly cooked dishes available. Will be returning soon for the fresh locally caught crab. You can also try a variety of meat dishes if fish is not your first choice. Will continue to eat here as it never fails to deliver!
