Surrounded by the wild expanses of Romney Marsh and the sweeping dunes of Camber Sands, this “passionately run” restaurant-with-rooms is naturally great for a bit of outdoor ‘gallivanting’. It also cuts the mustard as a “laid-back” foodie destination dedicated to local, sustainably sourced, seasonal produce – almost everything that appears on the menu is garnered from within 10 miles of the kitchen. Done out like a “beautiful New England beach house”, the restaurant serves “the freshest of food”, including fish off the boats and meat from southern pastures: crispy Romney Marsh lamb breast with wild garlic and creamed potato; soused mackerel with cucumber, fennel and radish; slow-cooked pork belly with peas and wild mushrooms. The day’s catch might appear with pappardelle, roasted hazelnuts and rainbow chard, while desserts could feature the Gallivant ice-cream sundae or yoghurt pannacotta with blackberry sorbet and granola. The 100-bin wine list is a patriotic oenophile’s delight, with more than 20 English sparklers flying the flag instead of Champagne – just ask the “brilliant and friendly staff” for recommendations.
