“The Empire Room is a hidden Ramsgate gem that needs to be brought out into the light for all to enjoy … The Empire Room is classy but warm and top range without being ‘snooty.’ You get good, Kent food and can feel comfortable eating at whatever pace you like. If you get the chance, book a table and find out for yourself how great the food is.”
