Harden's says

Sibling to the popular Empire Room at the Royal Harbour Hotel (the team of hotelier James Thomas and chef Craig Mather), this all-day, informal space (with harbour views) pays homage to the Dunkirk evacuation, and has even been decorated in the colours of the Dunkirk Veterans' Association. Thanks to the new Harrison charcoal-fuelled free-standing oven, roasted local fish and meats are the order of the day.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Chef Craig Mather revels in the abundance of local, seasonal produce” and “the locally built Harrison charcoal-fuelled oven works its magic on meats, veg and fish” at this “great addition to the harbour front” (est. June 2018 together with hotelier James Thomas, also of Ramsgate’s Empire Room). The name – and décor – nod to the flotilla of private boats that evacuated troops from Dunkirk.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"The service can be a little stiff though well meaning and they tend to do a slightly too heavy sell on extra olives, sides etc. But the food, even with a paired down Covid menu, is excellent, good quality and lovely fresh catch of the day with interesting sauce is always reliable."

"OK, so it was during the hubbub of ‘helping out’, but service described as ‘poor’ is actually paying them an undue complement. It was truly dire!! Soooo slooow I thought I’d still be there at breakfast time! Enough waiting staff - so serious problem in the kitchen! "
