Magnolia in Westcliff Arcade provides superb Italian food and a wood-fired oven. Family owned restaurant just a few minutes from the house. Turn left out the door and follow the hill down for a hundred yards or so just past the Yacht club.
Bon Appetit in Westcliffe Arcade is excellent for seasonal produce. Just a 100 yards or so from the house next to La Magnolia in Westcliff Arcade
Peter’s Fish Factory on Harbour Parade does some of the best fish and chips around. On Harbour Parade, 5 minute walk down the hill past La Magnolia and Bon Appetit. As Chippies go this is one of the best! Beware it can have long queues in season.
26 Harbour Street, evening venue, cocktails, live music and DJ’s Ben and Tracey, and a wonderful Coffee during quieter parts of the day.
The Royal Harbour Brasserie on the Harbour Arm offers almost 360 degree sea views. A lovely 15 minute stroll along the Harbour wall the restaurant is visible from the house. Look from the living room out across the Harbour and spot the red light (looks like a moored ship on the Harbour wall).
Townleys, in the Albion House Hotel, new addition to Ramsgate a couple of years ago. Lovely relaxed but smart surroundings and prominent location overlooking the Harbour from the opposite side. Varied and quality food. 20 minute walk.
Flavours by Kumar, best curry in Ramsgate, located not more than 5 minutes away. Turn left out the house and down the hill (past the Yacht Club) to Leopold St. Turn left and walk 50 yards up Leopold St until you reach the end as the road bends left. On the right is Effingham St, and Flavours by Kumar is 20 yards down the road.
The Ambrette, another great Indian restaurant listed by Michelin. In Margate a 20 minute drive (6 miles) away, but if you are visiting the Turner Gallery it is just around the corner!
The Emprire Room, Royal Harbour Hotel.
Almost next door at 10 Nelson Crescent this ‘Club like’ restaurant is part of the Royal Harbour Hotel. Very well liked by diners for the excellent food although some comment on the short menu. Rated 4 Stars by the Telegraph.
Kyoto Sushi. Excellent sushi, but can get very busy and some complain about slow service. Walk down the hill, past the Yacht club over the round-about to the corner with the Harbour still on your right. Turn left down The High St, Kyoto is 75 yards on the left hand side. 57 High St.
Wyatt and Jones. Local quality food done very well. Independent family owned restaurant. They bake their own breads, smoke the fish and butcher the meats. Excellent destination in Broadstairs following a decent walk along the beach at low tide. 60 minute walk from the house (3 miles). Dogs welcome.
