The White Cliffs Hotel, High Street, St Margaret's-at-Cliffe, Dover, CT15 6AT
The Bay, opened two years ago and located in the Kent seaside village of St Margaret's-at-Cliffe, is ensuring there'll be 'foodies' over the white cliffs of Dover for years to come. Situated in the lovingly refurbished White Cliffs Hotel, The Bay is the brainchild of celebrated hotelier and restaurateur Gavin Oakley - the man behind the nearby award-winning Wallett's Court Country House Hotel, which has become a favourite with visiting celebrities. The mission of Gavin and his team is 'to capture the essence of life in coastal England by introducing a fresh, contemporary look and feel that will appeal to a wide audience', and they are certainly succeeding. 'The Bay is already very popular, and we hope to build on that success by introducing innovative new menu ideas that reflect our passion for locally sourced, organic, free-range produce'.

A quick glance at the menu is enough to get your mouth watering. Sample starters include pea and nettle soup with black pig pancetta and nutmeg cream, and Sussex goat's cheese fritters with beetroot pickle and rocket salad. For your main course, you can tuck into chargrilled 28- day-matured Alkham beef with chips, roasted free-range chicken with basil, goat's cheese and braised lentils, or Kentish asparagus with leek and potato pavé and mustard seed and carrot jam - feeling hungry yet? Everything on this menu got us salivating, but the options that had us rushing to plan our next visit were the desserts. Take your pick from bread-and-butter pudding with hand-cut orange marmalade and custard, Kentish strawberry sablé with balsamic ice cream or, our favourite, Montezuma's bitter chocolate and whisky cream - sheer bliss. The hotel and restaurant are centred around a traditional Kentish inn, parts of which date back to Elizabethan times. If you visit in summer, you can soak up the sun in the rose-filled walled garden, and later in the year you can snuggle up in front of a roaring log fire. No matter when you visit, you'll find some fantastic British comfort and excellent cuisine
