Food is at the heart of what we do & being located in both the garden of England & on the British coastline, we have access to a fantastic supply of local fresh ingredients which is showcased in our seasonally changing menus


Owner/chef Simon & head chef Craig work closely with our local suppliers & kitchen brigade to create our menus. By using Kent based fishermen all local fish & shellfish are usually landed and on your plate the very same day & our Canterbury based butchers ensures all of our game & meat are reared in Kent farms

We work closely with our Broadstairs based fishmonger to ensure our menu echoes the seasons & has been responsibly sourced. The majority of our menu will come straight from one of our fishmonger's 18 day boats which fish the waters off of Margate, Whitstable, Ramsgate, Folkestone and Broadstairs. 

Although specialising in seafood, we always have meat & vegan options on our menu & we have 3 traditional roast options available every Sunday in addition to our full restaurant menu.
