Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around St. Nicholas at Wade

The Powell Bar & Restaurant

11 The Square, Birchington CT7 9AF, UK – 01843 842777

Recent makeover is fab. Lovely staff. Haven't tried it for food yet but will do soon! Outside seating is lovely on a warm summer evening

Excellent service, as the day was cold, they lit the fire on request. The food was really delicious, we went for the Sunday roast, 4 adults and a child. They were late with one of the starters and when the bill was presented they didn't charge for it or a couple of our drinks. Highly recommended. We will definitely be there again especially as they cater for vegetarians too.

Quex Barn Farm Shop and Restaurant

Quex View Rd, Birchington CT7 0BB, UK – 01843 846103

The facilities and gardens are great but the restaurant is meat/fish heavy with little choice for the (growing number) of vegetarians. I opted for a Ploughman's minus the ham. My companion chose the same but kept the ham. They both came on a small cheeseboard comprising coleslaw (excellent), salad (excellent), onion chutney (a little too sweet), the cheese and/or ham and one piece of ready-buttered sliced white cut into two (disappointing and too floppy to put the ingredients on). When I politely & quietly told a waiter we were expecting French bread he answered with a smart remark saying loudly "you're in Kent, so you get Kent bread" and turned and walked away. He did get his cheap laugh, but I felt humiliated (and wishing I had said crusty bread). Neither my companion nor I enjoyed our lunch as it looked like a board of make-your-own sandwich ingredients - if, of course, there had been two slices of bread. The younger waiting staff were quick, polite and delightful. My bill came to over £11 for the sandwich ingredients and a bottle of juice. I left a tip as the younger staff were worth it - but one doesn't go for a lunch in a pretty place to be made to feel ashamed by a smartypants.

Can't speak highly enough of this place. .... absolutely love it. This is definitely my regular go to for my weekly shop! The produce are all locally sourced at the butchers, fish mongers, in-house bakery and greengrocers. Some of the meat and groceries even come from the Quex Estate itself. The food is amazing..... from the freshly made artisan breads and cakes available at the in-house bakery, through to the freshly made doorstep sandwiches and 3-course meals available in the restaurant. Plus there's also a café for tea's, coffees or even a tipple should you need one after all that shopping! You can also grab one of those made-to-order doorstep sandwiches (all made from in-house items) or a piece of cake to go with your drink should you fancy one. Be warned the size of their sandwiches, along with the salad and chunky chips, are not for the faint hearted! On top of all that the staff in the shopping areas are always extremely friendly and highly efficient. Service with a smile!
