Restaurant Guide

Since this is a coastal town most of the restaurants have a lot of fish on the menu which is great if, like us, you really like seafood. That said, there are always meat and veggie alternatives so everyone is happy! These are just a small selection of the restaurants in Broadstairs. We would recommend that you book in advance at the weekend to guarantee a table, and this is essential on any bank holiday or other festival weekend.

Wyatt and Jones Shopfront

Wyatt & Jones

This is a very popular place to eat in Broadstairs. Wyatt and Jones has been included in the Good Food Guide again for 2017 and has been recommended in The Michelin Guide 2017. The food is fantastic, using lots of Kentish products and the ambience and décor in the restaurant is fabulous. Sit at the bar with a glass of Kentish wine and try local cured meats or a sharing platter. Child friendly, the children’s menu consists of a selection of smaller portions from the adult menu. 

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The hot chocolates are amazing in dark, milk and white chocolate.  Overlooking Viking Bay, so there is a brilliant view of the sea you can watch local fisherman bring in the day’s haul. Some fish is delivered direct from the boat to the restaurant.  On Sunday’s there are amazing Sunday roasts – yum! It is only open Wednesday to Sunday (not dinner on Sunday) and bank holiday Mondays. Book to avoid disappointment
