Lovely little bistro where the food and service are excellent. The attention to detail, including the time our waitress took to explain our questions about the menu, make this place a real gem. On top of the lovely food the warm welcome from all of the staff made for a special evening out. We’d definitely go again.

A request for one of the evening starters to be served at lunchtime was accommodated by the chef. This made my birthday lunch special as I could order my favourite dishes.

Unfortunately not up to your usual standard. We had the roasts & everyone found the meat tough & I had to leave mine as really not nice. Kale was also undercooked. Not good value for £19.95 & probably we will have to think whether to come back or not. As it was for a birthday celebration couldn't say anything at the time but sad it was not up to your usual standard.

Honestly loved my evening here. The fish of the day was fantastic, and having just eaten at The Sportsman, I'd say it was on par! Service was great, wine choices wonderful. Thank you.

Consistently excellent food, friendly service, warm atmosphere. Great menu of really lovely things to eat - the pork cheek scrumpet and salt & pepper squid and the gurnard and chicken on 6th March were both absolutely delicious. The sticky toffee pudding and stem ginger ice cream is better than any STP we’ve had anywhere else. Thank you - wish we could could get back to Whitstable for Samphire more often :)

Good lunch - great fish and the special pancakes were excellent as it was Shrove Tuesday. Friendly staff. Dinner would be more expensive though.

Excellent food, fantastic choices and superb quality. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and friendly staff. I was particularly impressed with the care taken about offering gluten free dishes, obviously knew their stuff. I can't wait to come again another time.
