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 5 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 plus our main a la carte 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.
We serve lunch & dinner in our lower ground floor restaurant, courtyard garden (in warmer weather, and by pre-reservation only) or in our smaller sea view ground floor hotel dining room where we can cater for those with mobility issues, as we do not have a lift to the lower ground floor.
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 £15.00 per bottle for champagne. Similarly if you wish to bring a celebration cake and eat it at the table we would need notice in advance. Charges are from £1.50 per person depending on numbers involved.
We had a lovely 40th meal with a large party, the atmosphere was cosy and warming, the food 1st class and the 2 waitresses were brilliant. Highly recommended for intimate meals, families and parties!! Thank you guys, you all worked so hard with a very full full restaurant. :)
Excellent food, excellent service.
Lovely atmosphere as always, great food and service
Nice space and lovely food. Service was friendly, but it did take a while for food to appear...although this wasn't a major problem.
The staff were particularly delightful, helpful and charming.
I have eaten at this restaurant many times and loved it. Unfortunately my last visit was disappointing. The portions have diminished in size but the price remains the same. Also £7.00-£9.00 for a pudding (which is quite small) is expensive. Sad to say this restaurant is not as good as it was.
Dear Mrs Porter, Thank you so much for writing about your experience with us on Saturday. I am very grateful for your past patronage and wish to keep you coming back. Perhaps as a gesture of goodwill you might accept a dinner for 2 on us on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night some time soon? If you would like to take up this offer then please write to me directly on [email protected] and I will organise it. Kind regards James Thomas
if your looking for high quality food at a reasonable price, this is the place. Comes very highly recommended. Been quite a few times and have never been disappointed.
We came for roast dinner on sunday 17th November. The roast dinner wasnt that nice due to roast potatoes not cooked enough and had no crisp to them and the Yorkshire puddings were stone cold! The waiter was a Good though. Over all we wasnt impressed.
I have left a glowing review on TripAdvisor - the service was so good that it added to the entire experience of well-being and good food.
Such a welcoming, cosy room, with friendly, efficient staff, and really great food. Already looking forward to my next visit.
Would have been 5 stars for service, but a fair delay between main course and dessert (we had a little one with us who was getting a bit bored) But everything else was spot on great, including the waiting staff who were really welcoming and friendly. Best place in ramsgate to eat for sure!
Wonderful food and great atmosphere.
Food is excellent and the service very good
The service was excellent, not sure of young lady’s name (she had lovely blue hair) Ordered Hake , but the chef wasn’t happy with the fillet, therefore offered us both Seabass which was great. Would definitely recommend for a Sunday lunchtime.
We had a very enjoyable evening. The food was great and the staff were very attentive. The fudge at the end of the evening was to die for.
This is a wonderful place. The food is exquisite and excellent value for money. We love the table settings and the service. We will be back!
Excellent food and service, lovely room like no other ‘regular’ restaurant in Thanet
The food was lovely as usual. Very good value and excellent service
We had a fantastic meal here, the food is always delicious however the menu this time wasn't as inspiring as previously.
The setting is lovely with comfortable seating. In a party of six we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The food was excellent and beautifully presented.
The staff were very helpful and attentive which made the evening flow really well. The food was great on the stomach and the eye.
I have already left my comments on trip advisor. However the fact that we reported that someone had had an accident in the toilet was ignored. Ten minutes later another diner was faced with this situation and commented to the staff as we had that toilet needed attention. Unforgivable!
You have a lovely team - very attentive.
We had a great evening - the perfect place for a rainy Saturday night! Food, ambience, everything is just spot on.
