Pubs & Restaurants

The Churchill House is just a few minutes walk away from the town centre & seafront where there are some great places to grab a bite to eat and try some local wines and ales.

We've listed below our favourite local pubs & restaurants to get your mouths watering before you've even arrived.

Pubs & Restaurants

The White Horse

Our local watering hole and oldest pub in Dover (1365 to be exact) is just across the road and is a fantastic place to dine on traditional homemade pub food while sampling their collection of fine gins

Evening meals between 5:30 pm and 8:30 pm (no meals served on Wednesdays).  

Weekends from 12 pm to 6 pm.  (walk-in only)

Blakes of Dover

Our second local watering hole which is just two minutes walk down the road on Castle Street.  Blakes of Dover offer an extensive a la carte menu and excellent fish dishes and dangerously enticing puddings, so beware!  Be sure to pop in on one of their live music nights.
