My Top 3 Places to Dine al fresco in Kent

By Kirsty Lavender – 20th June 2020

There’s nothing quite like dining outside on a warm sunny day or evening to make you feel just like you are away on holiday and with lockdown in place, I’m sure we could all do with feeling like that right now! I have chosen three of my favourite places to dine al fresco in Kent, each with a slightly different vibe so there’s sure to be something for everyone.

RECOMMENDATION | Billy Bob’s Parlour & Diner – The Yorkshire Dales 145

The Lobster Shack

Location: Whitstable

Cuisine: Seafood

Delicious fresh seafood right next to the sea, what could be better? For me, it’s the fact that I got married right here too!

As you’re in Whitstable you must try the local oysters (although my favourite is always the mussels!) Time your visit with a beautiful Whitstable sunset. and a walk along the beach after.

Although not currently open you can still enjoy fresh oysters and mussels (along with a takeaway beer) from their other venues in Whitstable; The Forge and The Oyster Shed.

Sands Hotel

Location: Margate

Cuisine: Modern European

Delicious food with fantastic service in a gorgeous setting, dining here feels like a real treat! Come early and enjoy a fab cocktail at the bar. The restaurant balcony offers gorgeous views of pretty Margate Sands and is the perfect spot to enjoy afternoon tea and watch the world go by! Fancy making a weekend of it? Why not book a room in the equally beautiful hotel rooms.

The Yard

Location: Faversham

Cuisine: Whole food kitchen serving fresh, local & seasonal food

Tucked away in a Faversham side street, you’ll find The Yard. Think fresh, seasonal food such as salads, burgers and amazing platters with a good selection of vegetarian options in a cute little garden. Head along on a Thursday or Friday evening for wine, beers and amazing cocktails!

I hope you enjoy these places (and the views) as much as I did!
