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 5 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.

We serve lunch & dinner in our lower ground floor restaurant, courtyard garden (in warmer weather, and by pre-reservation only) or in our smaller sea view ground floor hotel dining room where we can cater for those with mobility issues, as we do not have a lift to the lower ground floor.

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 £15.00 per bottle for champagne. Similarly if you wish to bring a celebration cake and eat it at the table we would need notice in advance. Charges are from £1.50 per person depending on numbers involved.

Another excellent lunch, great food, great service, what more could you want. Putting the poached eggs on crumpets with pancetta back on would be great but your ad hoc replacement specially for me was great too, thanks, will be back soon.

Lovely food, really tasty, well presented and fabulous service. A good selection of vegan dishes. Unique decor which is not to everyone's taste I imagine! But definitely a different sort of place and the food is amazing so that's what matters!

We booked this restaurant online as we were going to Ramsgate. When we arrived we were a little surprised by the entrance down steep steps, but once inside the restaurant, the service and especially the food were excellent, we would certainly return. As it was Wednesday lunch time, the restaurant we very quiet, only 6 covers, but we would certainly return for the food.

Wonderful food and excellent value for money. The waitress (Lucy) was very attentive. However we felt there was little atmosphere. Not sure how they could improve that. Felt old. Despite that I would definitely go again.
