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.
Great place and lovely roasts.
1 of the nicest meals we have had when visiting Kent. Will be back.
We had a fantastic evening, a birthday celebration for my brother in law. The food was excellent, the service amazing, will definitely go back next I'm in Ramsgate. I would also recommend for friends to visit.
Always a fantastic meal
Excellent meal as always
We absolutely love this place. Food is amazing every time as is the service and atmosphere. Hidden gem!
Lovely food and very friendly service. Because of its location, I think it's a nicer dining room for a winter evening than a summer one. However, the elegant furniture adds to the experience.
Overall excellent. Our waitress was so fabulous. Food excellent, if a little slow to come, but totally worth the wait. Only downside were burnt potatoes.
Tomato starter was disappointing to all who had this option
Thanks again Another great night and grub n booze Cheers 🥂
Excellent on all fronts
Cosy dining, lovely local produce cooked and present beautifully.
see review of hotel an restuarant tripadvisor
this was out first trip to the empire rooms for our 10th wedding anniversary, the service and food was fantastic! the only thing was a meal was over a bit too quickly we was in and out in 50 mins and would of liked an anniversary meal to have lasted a bit longer.
Another great Sunday lunch at The Empire. Staff were excellent especially with our two young boys who really enjoyed their lunch. Just excellent as usual.
Our first visit to the Empire Rooms and we shall certainly be back. The food was really lovely. A great spot for couples, groups and family gatherings.
We have been to the Empire Room before. Quite a few times in fact. I most appreciate the consistency; consistently good food and good service. My only criticism (more an observation really) is that the bass was overdone to my liking. But this is the same in all restaurants, due I suppose to the regulations regarding food temperature.
Very nice space. Lunchtime menu good choice and portions quite generous in a contemporary British style. After 3 courses did not feel much like eating the rest of the day, although the offer of a little bread on the side would have been nice if only to mop up the tasty sauces. As there was only the two of us and another person eating in the restaurant difficult to say about atmosphere but I imagine when busier that it would be convivial enough. Prompt, attentive service. Some of the furniture (not the dining tables) needed a bit of a dust, presumably an unintended oversight and I would imagine not typical as the place appears to be well-tended. We will return and have already recommended the place to friends.
We had a very enjoyable meal, we will definitely be coming back.
Excellent meal - will definitely be recommending you to friends
The food was exquisite, the service was impeccable, and the setting was intimate. We look forward to coming back!
I arrived with a large group of people and we all had a lovely time, enjoying the food as well as the atmosphere. Very friendly staff who made sure that we had a great time.
