Where to eat and drink in Broadstairs, Kent

When we visited Broadstairs, Kent, we did a lot of great eating and drinking and we felt really spoilt for options.

We were highly impressed with the amount of wonderful independent businesses that filled the high street and surrounding areas. It’s one of those places I can see us returning to time and time again, and with it being easily accessible by train from St Pancras in under 90 mins, it’s a great spot to escape from the city for a long weekend.

But, you’re here for the good stuff; what did we eat and where did we drink…
