Very disappointed all round, evening meal was poor , under cooked or completely dried out. The beef was chewy and no taste. The breakfast was a disaster, burnt omelette, under cooked bacon, dried out mushrooms and burnt beans. Poached eggs with broken yokes and soaked in melted butter. The food should never have left the kitchen if the chef had... More

Fairly small menu - which is good as the food should be cooked fresh. We were on a golfers package, so had an even smaller choice. Food is wholesome and well cooked. Presentation is nothing flashy - but you probably wouldn't expect that. Wines are very expensive for the quality and hence poor value for money.

Popped out for a few drinks it was lovely! The bar had an excellent range of gins. Worth a visit and the views over the golf course were amazing!

It's quite a difficult place to find ,however both the journey and the outcome are well worth it. Lovely restaurant overlooking the Princes Golf course, service good, food even better. Not huge but well presented and obviously with a lot of thought given to look and taste. Best of all 3 course lunch menu --£15.95 --Wow !

Arranged at short notice a lunch break for our group of 15 cyclists. Staff gave us a very warm welcome and had prepared a table laid out for us all. Service and bar menu food excellent. All of us very happy and refuelled for our return to Reculver. Must repeat it soon.

Great Food, Great Service, Great Place! Highly recommended. One of my favourite places to eat and it just happens to be 15 minutes from where i live, which is even better! If your a golfer then you'll be in heaven, as it also has 3 fantastic 9 hole courses.... 27 holes of pure links golf!

Here is an exceptionally good chef. Excellent by Central London brasserie standards. The service, however, was woeful. That was not the fault of the staff but rather those who supervise them. My wife and I went out to lunch with our son to celebrate his birthday. We were slightly delayed by the M25 traffic and phoned ahead with our exact... More

Apart from experiencing one of England's outstanding golf courses at Princes GC ,what differentiated this as one special golf destination ,was the wonderful surprise to enjoy the excellent cuisine presented by Chef Ricky Smith . Friendly and excellent service standards delivered by all the team - fabulous menu choice. Thank you.
