Local Pubs and Restaurants:
As there are only two places to eat on the estate, excluding the light railway cafe and in view of the increasing diversity of foods available within, say a ten mile radius, it is felt prudent to give other restaurants a mention – having first visited them.
We have, in the New Romney area alone, A Mexican establishment, Italian, two award winning Indian, Chinese, Tai, Greek and recently somewhere you can experience Goan food. On top of this we have not so long ago been graced with restaurateur Costas from Hythe – now at 103 The Parade, Littlestone. And for a gourmet experience, a little further down the road at Brookland, the Royal Oak.
At the north end of the Estate, with its entrance off Coast Drive/Battery Road, is the world famous ‘Pilot Inn’ public house.
The fish is always very fresh – and it can be served in a traditional batter or lightly grilled with a choice of chips or a very good salad.
But its not just a place for Fish and Chips. On the menu you will also find fillet steak, home cooked gammon and local Romney Marsh slow braised Lamb, a good selection of wines and beers …. And more.
The Snack Shack
A stroll away down the road towards the new lighthouse you will find a unique and excellent eating place – Snack Shack
The Snack Shack has flourished over the past year and rightly so. It has been featured in the Daily Mail, nominated for and shortlisted in the ‘Best Coastal Fish Restaurant of The Year Awards’ and continues to be rated ‘Excellent’ on Trip Advisor.
Owned and operated by Kenny Thomas and family, the ‘Snack Shack’ provides an extensive choice of quality sea foods and can boast that what was caught in the morning can be devoured the same afternoon.
Local caught fish can also be purchased as soon as the catch has landed. Can’t get fresher than that!
Open Wednesday to Sunday from 11a.m to 3.30pm – but please check if weather is bad!!
Britannia Public House
Between the two lighthouses we have the long established Britannia public house. Now under new management of Richard Davis
A Shepherd Neame hostelry there are always good beers including the famous ‘Spitfire’ range.
Food is varied from traditional Fish and Chips to steaks, burgers and family fayre.
Spacious with good outside seating – for those sunny days!!
Light Railway Café
At the end of the line – literally, we have the new restructured Light Railway Cafe, owned and run by RH&DR staff.
The Light Railway Café is the venue for the famous Dungeness Diner evening events. Please keep an eye on the Events page on their website for dates.
The former ticket office seasonally houses photographic displays and always features a good selection of local tourism information, while the station shop is well stocked with a range of “seaside” themed items, RH&DR branded gifts, confectionary & Ice Creams.
