Starter was ok, main meal we ordered belly port which was rubbery on top and in every mouth we have ligaments. For pudding with ordered tarts tatin which has raw pastry. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone I know! After our main meals we complained and they ignored us!!!

We had booked, we arrived late and were seated at 8.30pm. Service was great; attentive but not over the top. Food was delicious both from the Children’s and the Main Menu. We would eat there again.

Food lukewarm,felt we were left to see to ourselves the whole time, expensive for the quality of food and the amount of meat and vegetables available

Service was leisurely, but we weren’t in a hurry so this was fine. We had the lunch club menu. The food choice and quality was excellent . Good portion sizes. Exceeded our expectations. Well worth a visit.

Have had lots of lunches here , we always bring family and friends for lunch. Nice and relaxing.It’s very close to our home , very good value for money, and the soup is always particularly great . We have attended the Diwali evening, and also had a birthday lunch in the outside ‘hideaway ‘ which was amazing, and we will be booking again this summer.

We go often to this restaurant and are normally very satisfied with everything. This time we didn't make a sensible menu choice and my wife will avoid vegetarian options in future. Come to think of it my trout was a tad bit on the dry side but I'm being picky; this won't put us off going there again.

We had a birthday lunch for six. Nice spacious table, cheerful and friendly staff. Excellent salad starters, vegetables for the roast were cooked very well and were interesting. Ran out of roast beef but the alternatives were very nice. Beautifully presented dessert buffet. Live piano music very appropriate.
Would come again.

Great ambience excellent staff despite being run off their feet, more staff needed or more kitchen staff. Food was ok, we hoped to make this our regular place to eat as live close by but food quality needs to match strong competition that's around these days.

This is without doubt the best restaurant in Dover. There is always something new to try on the menu and the Sunday carvery is magnificent.

Cider overpriced. Only lager available no ale. Ordered 4 steaks - 3 medium and 1 medium/well. All came back well done, two of which very chewy and one practically inedible. Some was sent back. Have been here a few times but would not wish to come back again after this experience. What a disappointment

after driving for 6 hours to get here the Open Tabke suggested the restaurant was open much earlier than it was. We got ready for our original booking time slot only to be rudely told that they didn’t even open for another 2 hours. Food was really poor with very little to no choice for anything healthy.

I have read and heard many good recommendations to try the Ramada for sunday lunch. Unfortunately it did not meet expectations. The best part of the meal was the staff - friendly and attentive.
There was a good selection of starters and plentiful amounts but it then went down from there. Our main course vegetables were overcooked and the beef that two of our party selected was very dry and again overcooked. The desserts although many in choice, were all far too sweet and both the jelly and vanilla mousse (?) lacked any flavour.

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Food was plentiful and variety of choice. Staff checked at the table as to whether we required anything I.e more tea, coffee, sugar, without imposing. Would recommend to friends.

Visited here for lunch to celebrate a friends birthday. You were recommended by a neighbour. A very enjoyable experience. The staff were excellent...service was good. My friend returned her steak as it was tough. There was no problem and her meal was replaced. We will be returning again
