Great view,and that's it, total rip off prices, unfriendly, in fact the guy who drives the van who I believe is the owner looks more like a rag and bone man,so scruffy. If you want to take in the view whilst having a snack bring your own or a meal deal and sit anywhere on the cliff top benches, and... More

The staff are lovely and friendly and the views are just amazing especially on such a warm and sunny day - it was like being on the Med. I can only award 3 out of 5 as the food was overpriced and horrible. £2.20 for a mug of Nescafe, yes unbelievable and £2.70 for one of those plastic filter cups.... More

When walking the white cliffs, this is such a good place to stop off for breakfast, lunch or just for coffee and cake. Small cafe, which has outside seating too. Menu has a good choice, including sandwiches, ploughman's and cooked breakfast Views over the channel, and on a clear day the coast of France can be seen.

This is my favourite place a joy to go to. The best toasted cheese sandwich ever- fattening of course. Glimpses of Frances Country side and seaside in one.

Possibly the worst coffee in England. A 1970s local cafe for local people. Stewed 1970s style filter coffee or some wartime type instant. Reminded me of the old Manila airport, without the smiles.

My friend and I were out for the afternoon doing some sight seeing, and he suggested a break. We stopped in for a cup of tea, The Cliff Top is a small place with a huge view, it has some tables set up overlooking the water, it is absolutely beautiful, great place to unwind. Highly recommend if you are in... More

The location can't be beaten, and the huge breakfast is freshly cooked to order. I can't believe that someone has said it is let down by the staff. They are all so friendly and welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble for them. We have breakfast, here often, both as a couple and with family and friends, and have never... More

You won't get a better breakfast with a view anywhere else! The food is excellent, not like a greasy spoon breakfast, both traditional and quality. The staff are really friendly and helpful too. The only thing is that it is a bit pricey, but it wouldn't stop me recommending it highly!
