Marks & Spencer Dover28 Biggin Street, Dover, Kent, CT16 1BX
Quality is the name of the game here - but the food section is modestly sized at this branch (Canterbury being the best bet for their full selection).
They are now very much geared to offering pre-packaged traiteur dishes, which simply need re-heating or a few minutes of basic cooking. Their varieties span the world, those from the Far-East, while good, are designed to be inoffensive so tend to hold the middle-ground in the flavour stakes.
However, the British and European-style dishes are of a standard not easily achieved in the average British household; and this makes many of them ideal for entertaining (or, if you can afford to, for everyday eating). Their excellent party nibbles, mean that you can have a party or barbecue at a moments notice - and the range has to be commended.
They still produce the best chicken Kiev's available; but, be careful not to buy the cheaper 'reformed meat" version.
Perhaps their next efforts should be put into incorporating more free-range/organic/local products into their existing range.
