“Definitely a "go back!"”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We chanced on Mortimers after a junk shop trawl of Herne Bay. We have a caravan on Sheppey so visit Herne Bay regularly but have missed this eatery every time. The staff were friendly, the place was spotless and the food excellent. Syrup sponge and custard was superb and try the homemade chicken and ham pie. Prices were ridiculously reasonable and we enjoyed the meal so much we drove there today just for lunch. May do the same tomorrow!!!

“Herne Bay to a tee”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

In a nice comfortable time warp. Nothing spectacular but everything adequate. The service was particularly "old fashioned "in the nicest possible way
Possibly why the place was 90% full of pensioners ,who would appreciate it to the full

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

I need to be careful because it would be very easy to sound supercilious (yes I had to look it up too) when the problem was really my expectations, not their delivery. From other reviews, I was expecting something closer to a fine dining experience, possibly even somewhere where we could take friends who really enjoy their food (and wine). This is not that sort of place. I would call it an English Diner with a very traditional "meat and two veg" or "something with chips" menu. The vegetables rather too boiled and the pie was suffering from soggy bottom. My companion described it as; "like lunch used to be a grandma's". The service was excellent and the place was very busy with what seemed to be mainly a loyal following of regulars, no doubt helped by very reasonable prices. We had booked and that proved to be necessary. If you want a quick, basic but good value meal with good service, you won't be disappointed.
