About The Empire Room
Part of the fabulous Royal Harbour Hotel, the 40 cover Empire Room restaurant serves local seasonal food and drink in a club setting 7 days a week. We source direct from Ramsgate's fishing boats as well as local suppliers of meat, vegetables, fruit and drinks. We are proud to be a member of 'Produced in Kent'.
With set priced menus for lunch and mid week dining plus our main a la carte dinner menu, we have options to meet all our guests requirements.
Regularly referred to as a "hidden gem" our menus are influenced by local seasonal ingredients but can have the flavours of India, Africa and Europe.
Serving lunch, afternoon tea & dinner in our downstairs restaurant, courtyard garden or in our smaller sea view dining room where we can cater for all dietary requirements.
Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday 14.30 - 15.30
Only in advance do we consider corkage if you wish to bring your own wine. Charges start from £12.00 per bottle for wine and £15 per bottle for champagne. Similarly if you wish to bring a celebration cake we would need notice in advance. Charges are from £1.50 per person depending on numbers involved.
only fault was one starter came 10 minutes after the other seven.
This is the 3rd time we have visited this restaurant and each time the service and food has been excellent. All members of our party commented on how good their food was. This gem of a place is well worth a visit if you have not been there before.
Dined at The Empire Room quite a few times. It's become a favourite. Always great service and excellent food.
Fantastic food and service, beef the best ever and cheese and home made biscuits sublime, chicken very happy to be merrily consumed. Thanks
We just adore the Empire Room, everything about it is faultless, food, staff and ambience. It is our default option every time now. See you soon . Kim
The food was lovely and tasty well presented . I did feel that it could have been hotter and this was only thing that I found to let it down this time. We did leave after paying and there was no member of staff to say goodbye or to chat to . We did leave a good gratitude so it would have been nice to have seen someone. But apart from that it was a lovely evening .
Great food and service
Overall it was a pleasant evening, however some of us were disappointed with our starters, two of diners said their crumpets were hard and the goats cheese starter wasn’t great. The staff were nice and the general ambience was lovely. It would have been nice to have some bread given.
An excellent meal out for my wife's birthday, possibly ths best meal out she's ever had she said, I was firmly in her good books. Take a look on TripAdvisor for revie (The map was pink...). Will definitely visit again when next in Ramsgate.
Fantastic food, swift service despite there being a large party in at the same time as us. Staff very polite and helpful.
As always everything about our dining experience was excellent, the food, the staff can’t fault it. My curried hake main course was sublime.
Great food and great service
Great place! Never disappoints.
So glad we found you! Thoughtful, interesting and well-executed menu, lovely atmosphere and faultless service. Thank you
Craig is a wonderful Chef. Everything was perfect. The best Sunday lunch in a restaurant, we all loved it. Thank You
This place just gets better, the food today was simply delicious and our friends from away were suitably impressed. Can thoroughly recommend the hake!
Superb time with friends. Excellent food, wine and ambience.
Food was good and good value for money. Stairs when entering are a little trecherous. Plant pots on the widest part!
Great venue lovely food at reasonable prices All the staff are friendly and efficient.
