Places to eat & drink in Dover.

There may not be bluebirds over the White Cliffs of Dover but these towering chalk monoliths remain an evocative reminder of past heroics. From here on a clear day you can see France, 21 miles away, and feel history on the breeze.

It was at or near Dover in 55BC that Julius Caesar landed with 6,000 men in 80 boats to mount his invasion of Britain. Later the Angles, Jutes and Saxons settled here, while William the Conqueror’s half brother, Bishop Odo of Bayeux, arrived with prefabricated parts for a castle.

The town once supplied most of the fish for London's markets and its clifftop Norman castle overlooks and protects the harbour as one of the earliest castles containing concentrically-arranged fortifications. Nearby is possibly the earliest Roman lighthouse in Britain while Dover Museum has a re-created Bronze Age boat – the "first cross channel ferry", older than the pyramids.

Having long been a gateway to Europe, Dover was the destination for Louis Bleriot when he made his first cross-channel flight in 1909.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Dover or surrounding areas.
