Crab & Winkle

South Quay, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 1AB
A good seafood restaurant, over the Whitstable fish market - outside tables have marvellous views over the harbour. It's named after the first steam passenger railway line, offering a service between Whitstable and Canterbury.Their offerings include seafood both immediately-local and from further away. So expect the likes of 'Whitstable Oysters'; 'Pan-Fried Scallops with Black Pudding and Caramelised Apples'; 'Hot Smoked Salmon' and perhaps 'Pigeon, Bacon and Sage Terrine with Kohlrabi Rémoulade' among the starters. Perhaps 'Grilled Gurnard Fillets with Crushed New Potatoes and Mustard Dressing'; 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Organic Salmon'; perhaps various ways with sea bass, lobster & Dover Sole - plus of course the eponymous crab. There is always a vegetarian option. Finish with 'Vanilla and Ginger Burnt Sugar'; 'Mixed Berry Cheesecake', 'Crème Brulée' or British cheeses from Neal's Yard.
