The Food

The Menu

With a menu of classic British fayre with contemporary twists, Mark provides dishes such as Fillet of beef, potato fondant, smoked garlic and mushroom puree, Sea-bass, sweet potato hash brown and kale and rich desserts such as dark chocolate torte, berry soup and raspberry sorbet. Afternoon Tea is made from scratch (apart from the clotted cream!) where the strawberry, raspberry and fruit jams are made from local berries and the scones, sticky toffee sponge and carrot cake and sandwiches have been lovingly made in the Crescent Turner kitchen.

The Quality

Produce is sourced locally as much as possible, supporting local Whitstable suppliers Salvatori, Whetwhelks and Chapmans who will all help to ensure a local flavour. A trip to Whistable would be incomplete without Oysters, enjoy Rock Oysters at the Turner, which are available from just the 1 (£1.40) to as many as you can fit, a challenge of the full 12 maybe, plain or with a chilli and mango salsa you can pair with a perfectly chilled Chenin Blanc, Riesling or Grillo, or Champagne. If you are to eat Oysters, surely it should be where you can see exactly where they have been collected from.
