Stunning sea views, along with a beautiful terrace and gardens make The Restaurant at Kingscliff Hotel an ideal coastal eatery. World flavours feature on the menu, along with classic British afternoon teas.

The Restaurant menu is packed with exciting world recipes, along with time-honoured British classics.

Hearty mains include crispy confit duck leg with spring greens, dauphinoise potatoes and red wine jus, and vegetarian delicacies like pea and mint risotto with parmesan are also on offer.

Afternoon teas at The Restaurant Holland-on-Sea feature freshly made finger sandwiches, a range of baked treats and teas, as well as bottles of bubbles, all of which are perfect to enjoy on the restaurant's terrace.

    Good basic pub menu at reasonable prices. Very attentive service although you should not have to ask for a jug of water. Only downside is the loud awful background music even for breakfast. Nice views of garden and patio.

    We have been to the Kingscliff many times in the past 30-plus years, for many kinds of occasion,but had been put off it in recent years until the present owner took over. On our recent visit for an evening meal we were really pleased. We had an excellent 3-course meal with drinks, with plenty of choice on the menu, and felt it was good value for money. The young staff were attentive, efficient and friendly. There was a pleasant, peaceful atmosphere in the dining room and, as we have done in the past, we were able to have our meal looking out over the sea. Provided the Kingscliff maintains this standard, we shall happily go again.

    New decor and setting is a great improvement over the previous hotel restaurant. Menu offerings were not too many making the choice of food nice and easy. Excellent service from all Kingcliff Hotel staff we encountered.

    Disappointing Afternoon tea. Staf were very good but food wasn't to expected standard. Although a miscommunication was quickly rectified there was no finesse the small collection of cakes were extremely disappointing and cheap. The fingers sandwiches were not very exciting and the scones were dry. Our experience came with gin which was nice but for £19.95 I think it was very over priced. The picture to advertise had mini trifles and impressive cakes, we did expect a cake stand each for the price. Unfortunately would not recommend and will not go back.

    Basic Menu, not much choice , restaurant was Clean , Considering there was a Wedding reception there at the time of our visit we were attended to with no waiting , we had a disabled person with us and we had plenty of space at the table for the wheel chair . If the Menu was more interesting , We would definitely return.
