FRESH, SEASONAL, NATIVE KENTISH FOOD
So, you’ve probably heard that we love to #KeepitKent here?
It’s true! We really do love to look close to home for inspiration.
The kitchen team love to be playful and go with the flow when it comes to what they produce, using the best of what’s local, in season and all that’s simple, fresh, tasty, wholesome and occasionally a little naughty.
Our fish and shellfish comes from local day boats at Deal, Whitstable, Folkestone or straight off the beach at St. Margaret’s Bay.
Our meat is carefully sourced from local farms and vegetables where possible are farmed locally or foraged from the wild.
Chef Andrew has a bit of a sweet tooth, he is an expert at making lovely puddings from seasonal fruit and making home-made ice cream is one of his passions.
We have a certain pedigree… The kitchen team work under the watchful eye of owner, retired Michelin-Starred Chef Chris Oakley formerly a head chef with the highly acclaimed Roux Brothers. After spending over half a century in kitchens Chris’s guiding hand has helped steer the focus to the simplicity of the ingredients treated with reverence and a light touch.
The welcome is warm, the place is run by the second and third generation of the Oakley family and the crew are locals with a passion for all that is native to Kent.
And to drink… Well there’s a raft of carefully selected beers & ciders on tap from around Kent alongside a great list of wines from near and far, a dozen fabulously wicked gins, fine old rums and much more.
The Pub & Kitchen lays at the heart of The White Cliffs Hotel and makes a great place to eat with an overnight stay in one of the collection of 16th century buildings that house boutique ensuite bedrooms, apartments and a penthouse Loft suite.

WHERE ARE THE WHITE CLIFFS & THE CLIFFE PUB & KITCHEN?
The White Cliffs nestles in the heart of the village of St Margarets at Cliffe near Dover, Kent; the best kept secret of White Cliffs Country, a Dover hotel ideally situated only ninety minutes from the city of London & ten minutes from the port of Dover.
