About The Empire Room
Part of the fabulous Royal Harbour Hotel, the 40 cover Empire Room restaurant serves local seasonal food and drink in a club setting 7 days a week. We source direct from Ramsgate's fishing boats as well as local suppliers of meat, vegetables, fruit and drinks. We are proud to be a member of 'Produced in Kent'.
With set priced menus for lunch and mid week dining plus our main a la carte dinner menu, we have options to meet all our guests requirements.
Regularly referred to as a "hidden gem" our menus are influenced by local seasonal ingredients but can have the flavours of India, Africa and Europe.
Serving lunch, afternoon tea & dinner in our downstairs restaurant, courtyard garden or in our smaller sea view dining room where we can cater for all dietary requirements.
Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday 14.30 - 15.30
Only in advance do we consider corkage if you wish to bring your own wine. Charges start from £12.00 per bottle for wine and £15 per bottle for champagne. Similarly if you wish to bring a celebration cake we would need notice in advance. Charges are from £1.50 per person depending on numbers involved.
This was our second visit and we are overwhelmed by this restaurant. 0n both occasions, we have been served by Izzy and she has been a credit to the establishment. We will definitely be booking again in the future.
Fabulous lunch with friends, meals were delicious and well presented, staff were lovely and nothong was too much trouble, will definately return
Lovely food and the waitress was lovely - very helpful and friendly.
Apart from some initial difficulties with our group booking we had a fantastic lunch. Food and service was very good
Excellent food and service for our party of ten.
Love Empire Rooms
Delicious meal in a calm and peaceful setting - a wonderful anniversary evening
My mum had lunch on Mothering Sunday and it was lovely, the waitresses were very attentive without being over the top. The restaurant is cosy and it's like being in a private house. Loved it will definitely be back.
Looking forward to coming again. Corkage charges would seem a little excessive.
It was our first time to visit the Empire Rooms, and I will say that the food was truly amazing on every course that we had, service was with a smile and the recommendations came were not wrong, yes it was the most expensive I have ever spent on a dinner, but it was worth it to see the smiles the food delivered, very much recommend
Loved it we had a very enjoyable time
Another fantastic meal. I can’t recommend the empire room enough.
Excellent food and service as usual. Highly recommended and will be returning soon.
We had an amazing time celebrating my Dads 90th Birthday. The whole experience was fantastic, the table, the food, the service. We had such a lovely time, I can’t recommend it enough. Thank you to all at the Empire Rooms.
Will worth the wait . Food cooked to order and fresh .staff very welcoming .Found two courses ambel.
Great meal as always, would recommend the restaurant to everybody.
We love the Empire room. Due to busy lives we can’t always make when we want to and as a result a voucher that we received for Christmas went out of date. Craig and his team were very helpful and extended the date for us. Our server was very helpful and made our children feel welcome, which is important to us. The food was amazing and delcious as always. Thank you Empire room
Really missed the option of mussels in wine. The range of starters was lovely but nothing really appealed on the main courses.
Always brilliant food - great service and my favourite roast around
Great food and service. Would come again and soon. Thank you for lovely evening.
Very good value for money but a bit lacking in atmosphere. We waited a long time for our food which was delicious when it arrived. TheProsecco was poured before all the guests arrived and not at the table which I don't think is correct but we had a lovely time and will come again.
Had a fantastic night food was fabulous really made my birthday thanks so much lovely staff
I booked to take friends for a quiet sunday lunch as we've been to the Empire Rooms before. However, there was a large birthday lunch and we couldn't hear ourselves think let alone talk. I don't have a problem with people being loud and enjoying themselves but I wish I had been told there was a large party and I probably would have booked a different day. I cannot fault the excellent food and superb service that we had. We will return.
