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.
A favourite of mine - I can walk there from home in 3 minutes, and often do!
Once again we had a lovely evening with excellent food, good service and a great atmosphere. My wife Meg had the toasted homemade crumpets and it looked absolutely delicious, followed by the vegetable wellington which was excellent and nicely presented, and for dessert she had the white chocolate cheesecake with rhubarb, also superb. I had smoked maceral pate which is one of my favourites followed by Cumin roasted squash with spiced chickpea lentil and vegetable curry. For dessert I had the treacle tart with a special ice cream – if you like treacle tart this was delicious and a good portion.
Once again, a most enjoyable evening. The five of us all enjoyed our meals. I look forward to our next visit
Best Sunday lunch we have had for a long time. Fabulous roast potatoes, melt in the mouth lamb and very interesting and delicious vegetables. On top of that plenty of gravy! Will be back!
It’s chilly in the old building ( hey ho!) and the entry steps are very steep! Not for the faint hearted or those with limited mobility..... BUT if you do reach the dining room the food and service are worth the trip! Each course looked and tasted amazing....all 4 of our party agreed! I shall be back with hubby!
Great food, especially the Hake and Cod mains, friendly and efficient service even though the waitress was a touch busy on her own. Excellent value. So pleased you are only around the corner from us!
Great food. Excellent service. Can't fault anything.

Great meal thank you to Craig and his team.
Excellent food and service, a wonderful Mother’s day dinner. Very accommodating of teenagers who are a tiny bit fussy
A fantastic meal. Excellent service. Will be returning
Excellent food and reasonable prices. Great service too!
We all thought the food was so good. Thoroughly enjoyed everything that day. Have recommended you to other people. Couldn't fault the service. A nice touch was the plate of appetizers we had
Food was excellent at the Empire Rooms, with interesting decor and nice atmosphere. The services was polite, but more training needed on Restaurant etiquette. Serving wine etc. But would still go again!
Gorgeous meal - great flavour and thought in the dishes- deffo recommend!!! Can’t wait to visit again
Very enjoyable evening spent with friends. Food was delicious and service very good. This was our second visit and will be sure to book again. Thank you.
Amazing food and service. Bonus that we could bring our dog! Also great veggie choices. Only slight negative was it was cold (even with the heater on) as we were caught by a blast of icy air every time the door opened. That being said it was a very cold day outside. Overall lovely experience and can’t wait to come back.
We had a wonderful Sunday lunch, taking friends on their first visit. Our friends commented that it was the best restaurant meal that they had in years and are planning a return visit already. Our only sadness was that due to our own commitments we had not allowed enough time for a pudding.
Delicious food, good range of choices, the setting and atmosphere was lovely, and we enjoyed the lay out of the table, so that we were sitting next to each other on the corner. It made it feel more intimate than shouting across the table. The two waitresses were helpful and attentative, and one was sweet for checking I was ok after I caught my finger in the door when the wind caught it. The owner coming round each table and checking we were all happy, was a nice touch. I'd visit again and recommend
The staff were amazing. Just two girls who greet you warmly and look after you all evening with a beautiful balance of attentiveness but discretion.
