What's happening at The Dockyard?


Hugely popular with our visitors. A hearty ‘workshop’ menu - ‘doorstep’ sandwiches, hot Kentish pies, cakes and delicious Kentish ice cream. Eat alongside our Locomotives and childrens’ soft play.



If you think you know what our restaurant is like, think again! The Mess Deck is brand new. New kitchen, new seating, new menu - great British favourites, including our legendary fish and chips, all to be enjoyed sitting in an extraordinary building!
