For fresh & local delights: Taste White Cliffs Country
Our guide to food and drink in Dover, Deal and Sandwich
White Cliffs Country is nestled in the Garden of England and naturally we place huge importance on fresh, local produce. Our restaurants and cafés offer local fish and seafood on their menus as well as seasonal fruit and vegetables sourced from our many local delicatessens, markets and farm shops. Dover Sole is a must-have, and don’t forget to have traditional Fish and Chips before you leave the coast!
The café culture has definitely not passed this area by. Practically on every street corner you will find somewhere for a latté and a snack ranging from the well-known high street names to stylish independents. Many have picturesque court yards or tables and chairs set out so you can take time out and watch the world go by whilst sitting in the sun. If the weather isn’t so good cuddle up to the open fire blazing in the corner of a beamed room and take time to read the local newspaper provided.
Indulge in the quintessentially English pursuit of taking tea! There are plenty of places offering Kentish Cream Teas and Afternoon Tea. Whether you prefer sophistication with majestic cake stands, finger sandwiches and dainty bone china cups and saucers, or cheerful bunting, vintage teapots and cupcakes… we have it all in White Cliffs Country!
Kent’s hop fields have made our local beer famous for hundreds of years and a Kentish apple makes an excellent cider. You will be able to enjoy a pint or two in our many traditional or boutique pubs and a selection of micro-breweries across the district.
