Smart, modern restaurant with a lovely little garden in the middle of Dover. Delicious smoked haddock chowder and a beef and horseradish baguette made a welcome lunch with Biddenden wine and sparkling rhubarb to drink.

I don't usually eat fish when I'm out, but the description of the cod tonight was so appealing. I wasn't disappointed! It was incredibly tasty. My only disappointment was that my partner wanted to share a pudding...I would have eaten the Belgian chocolate ganache to...More

Small car park at the rear of the Town Hall, opposite us on Ladywell Road. I believe it's free after 5:30 pm, but check the car park notice board to confirm this.
