We offer group bookings of over 6 people, so if you're looking for a place to have a get together, do not hesitate to contact us. Fill out the form below and we will be in touch with you to discuss further details.

Our maximum occupancy is 36 people at any one time.

Everyone's food is cooked from a space much smaller than a domestic kitchen. 

Despite our size, our team works hard to make sure all our guests are served high-quality food

and drinks as efficiently as we can manage. 

Since we are located in a coastal town, we are especially busy during the peak of summer.

If the weather is too bad we may have to close and

cancel your booking at short notice but will give as much notice as possible.

Please remember to wrap up warm if you have an evening reservation.

We are dog friendly.

We do not provide highchairs or a children's menu but can leave salsas off some menu items.

Our food menu is mostly gluten free, we always have at least one vegan option.


DIVE Chilli Oil Crunch is available to purchase by the jar on the Harbour.


All of our decorative ceramics are made by our dear friend

Mercedes Workman and have been commissioned by DIVE.

Toilet Disclaimer: Our toilets are shared amongst all the businesses on the harbour as well as the general public.  They are managed by Thanet District Council who have strict Health & Safety protocols that stop us from meaningfully improving them.  Whilst we always endeavour to keep them functioning, we cannot guarantee that they are pretty.

They are due for refurbishment to take place shortly and we will have alternative toilets to use but are waiting for an update on when this will commence.

(Info correct as of 1st April 2023)

Refurbishment works are being carried out, we have our own temporary toilet.

(Info correct as of 1st August 2023)
