Not enough people have commented yet
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.
Do you think it deserves to be better known?
Write a quick review now using our restaurant diary service. That way it might catch our attention. Next survey, you can transfer your diary entry into our survey system. Everyone who contributes 5 or more reviews in our survey will qualify for a free guide.
James' mother is from St. Vincent in the Caribbean and his father is from Glasgow so his influences are varied and wide ranging.

As you can see James has spent more times in kitchens than out and the food he delivers never disappoints. Having grown up in Whitstable he is proud to serve Whitstable Rock oysters on the current menu. Growing up by the sea has been a huge influence on his cooking and customers can look forward to treacle cured smoked salmon and raw mackerel on the menu.
