Making my reservation was great, no problems. On arrival, no meet & greet, looked kind of hectic. Had to wait ages for drinks, we had about 3 different servers. Food and drinks were good, I would definitely eat there again. Bar staff need to have more training, asked if I would like a slice of orange in my drink, the staff picked it up with their fingers and attempted to put it in my glass!! Thanks to George & Ash.

We reserved this table a month ago, and reconfirmed it the night before on the booking site, so we were astonished to find that they had cancelled our reservation without telling us in order to accommodate a party. The supervisor at the restaurant even tried to tell me that he had tried to contact me, despite having no proof of this and my bringing along the email confirming our reservation from the day before. It was an incredibly hot day, and we had three small children and a baby who were all tired and hungry, The restaurant could not have been less helpful and left us standing around while they went off for 10 minutes before they told us what had happened. There seemed to be no acceptance of the mistake that had been made, and we were made to feel like we were being a nuisance. I would never consider coming back here.

Service was very good, prompt and friendly. The food, well the fish and chips were superb, best I've had in years. A friend had the salmon dish and she was similarly delighted with what she had. Cinque Ports is well worth another visit.

We booked a table of ten people and were told when we arrived that there was only roast beef available and a vegetarian option which wasn’t good enough .

When the food arrived it was nice! We ordered just 1:00 and way before many other diners arrived. Our starters arrived within 15 minutes however we then had to wait over an hour for our mains. Really not ideal with a hungry 18 month old! The staff were friendly but the kitchen clearly were not prepared for the number of covers. Disappointed as it would have been a nice family meal.

Staff were really friendly and nice but unfortunately the actual service was really poor. After s big speech about how we’d be gifted table service because it was busy and a promise that he’d be back in “4 minutes” to take our order, the waiter didn’t reappear for half an hour. Our attempt to order at the at bar meanwhile was futile so we were glad when he did finally return. Then our food came in two halves - we were served two burgers and the waited over 15 mins for the other two mains to arrive. Also when the waiter finally brought them he was so frantic he accidentally kicked two pints of water over our dog in a tidal wave! Obviously an accident and he was super apologetic but it was just a nightmare. We had originally planned to get dessert but decided to leave after mains. Wasn’t cheap either and the food was just average. Decent burger but limited menu and a bizarre sauce in the chicken wings that was apparently Korean ?! Lush cocktails tho (French and old fashioned)! Worth a try if you’re around long enough and have any expectations re; service

The quality of the food was to a bery high standard however the food could be warmer. Sevice was slow and waiting staff seem abit confused at times. Desserts served at different times with long delay on adult desserts. Meal was very well priced
