The Hangover Hash was divine! Location and atmosphere cannot be beaten even with a rainstorm hitting mid breakfast I would love to have other coffee options - not just filter coffee but that’s me being super picky and a bit of a coffee snob 😁

We booked for brunch. Had read good reviews. Arrived on time for our table. Found the staff inattentive and cold. Requested a table that had cleared and was in the sun, as our was in the shade and cold. Were told that the tables had been booked and allocated by table number to those who had booked. This was not believable as we were given our own table seemingly at random - we had “free choice” to choose between two cold tables. We left disgusted and without eating - don’t appreciate being lied to.

very disappointed, walked all the way there and super excited about our brunch on our last day in margate only to be told that our reservation was cancelled as their gas wasn’t working, obviously not their fault but would have been helpful to know our booking was cancelled before we got there, could have booked else where...

We visited on Sunday morning and had the most wonderful rolls and pots of tea ! The egg roll with salsa verde and the sausage roll with mustard aioli was amazing! Thank you

Had a fabulous breakfast with my family, it was a blustery morning but we braved it and so glad we did. Service was great and food amazing and served quickly. The menu is very well thought out and imaginative. Great breakfast and will definitely be back.
