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.
Really wonderful evening. Beautifully prepared and presented food: imaginative menu but not the 'nouvelle' portions that are often associated with creative menus. The restaurant genuinely is dog-friendly and the staff were friendly, helpful and very professional. The tasting dessert menu for 2 is a must!
We ate a main course of Lamb the most delicious lamb with fantastic vegetables. We ate a pudding of Banana Cake, (the most moist ever) with caramalised Banana, wow was that wonderful.
What a find!! My parents have been telling my wife and I to go to the Empire Rooms for ages and it did not disappoint. Excellent food, excellent service and great value for the quality of food.
Great food. Had the sharing pudding platter which was amazing. Service was really good. Mixed feelings about the decor very colonial may offend some people.
Outstanding as always
The food was awful. The service was terrible and rude. I'm never going back.
Both waitresses were really friendly and helpful. Classic roast done well with good desserts.
A very enjoyable evening of good, well-presented and generously proportioned food in a charming setting.
Although living local this was our first visit following a recommendation. A wonderful evening with two good friends. we will definately be back.
3rd time we've been back to The Empire Room and the food, service and atmosphere as good as ever!
Lovely Sunday lunch, thoroughly enjoyed twice now!
We had a fantastic large group Sunday lunch at the Empire room yesterday. Will surely recommend to friends and will most definitely be back ourselves... Our second visit now and we literally can not fault any of it. Great food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere!
had a relaxing and very enjoyable meal, was not rushed, food was of the highest quality and and the service was of the highest standard considering our waitress was young, all and all - very good, will be coming back shortly.
Gorgeous meal, and lovely staff
Excellent meal enjoyed by all four of us. My daughter - a vegan - said it was the best meal out she had ever had for choice and quality. Our roasts, especially the lamb, was superb.
Wonderful evening, thanks to all your staff
Lovely food, nice atmosphere and good friendly service.
Our first visit and definitely not our last we hope . Like stepping back in time in such a cosy and wonderful dining room . The food was exceptional as was the friendly service . Loved everything about it . Bought vouchers for our friends so they can try it too .

The young waitress who was working on her an was fabulous and she worked so hard and gave brilliant service.THe food was lovely and hot as requested and very tasty
Once again we were thrilled with everything. Some of my family down from London thought the quality was amazing as was the service with Emma taking great care of all of us - thank you.
