Dining out in Dover doesn’t get much better than The Marquis for fans of traditional English cuisine. The stunning hotel was formerly an Alkham Valley village inn and continues to give diners a look back into Kent’s historic past. Their team strive to give guests the best hospitality that goes beyond cosy rooms, revamping British classics with a fine dining style that will make any occasion one to remember.
One of the more remote places to eat in Dover, The Marquis will create the perfect retreat for diners. They’ll find the hotel deep in the Kent countryside, surrounded by farmland, stables and homes. It’s also minutes from the Channel Tunnel and would make a fine place to eat before coming or going to the continent with the family.
After an extensive refurbishment in 2008, The Marquis is back to its former glory with many of its original features restored. These changes can also be seen in their AA award-winning restaurant, which would suit families looking for a casual place to dine out in Dover. There’s plenty of room for large groups while couples can enjoy a romantic meal without being disturbed by their neighbouring diners.
Chef and manager Stephen Piddock and his team love working with local suppliers. and they source only the finest ingredients and change their menus with the seasons. This gives diners an exciting chance to enjoy a fresh alternative to other British restaurants. Past dishes have included tandoori scallops, duck breast with braised chicory and Chalk Stream river trout with new potatoes.
