The Powell Bar & Restaurant
lovely place very friendly just the right atmosphere
Disappointed that for a special occasion that they we couldn't have what we wanted from the menu. Having already ordered and served with a white wine for fish & chips it didn't go to well with a steak burger, the only alternative that I wanted. To run out of fish only 90 minutes after opening isn't really acceptable is it.
Beautiful day to sit in orangery, sunday roast was lovely, friendly helpful staff. Made our anniversary perfect.
Lovely food , really tasty and well presented. Restaurant are was lovely and beautiful. Only niggle is the fact you have to walk through a busy bar bit to get to the restaurant and the fact you can still hear the loudness of the bar in the restaurant area , which slightly ruins the atmosphere. Would still go back again for the good though as it was delicious.
Great food, great presentation, reasonable prices - what's not to like??
Excellent service and food quality. Highly recommended the lamb.
Tasty, well presented food. Saturday night so bar area noisy, but our area near fire door at back was fairly quiet.
Went for my sons 21st birthday meal, lovely meal as usual, live singers excellent, lovely sunny day, good to see family’s sat outside enjoying a drink.
Second time here and enjoyed it once again. The decor, warm welcome and good food will keep us coming back!
Callum and his team cooked an awesome meal. the lamb was amazing could of licked the plate clean! Great portions for the money. Front of house staff were lovely and chatty. Food was great! Well done all xx
A birthday celebration for my partner and our first time to The Powell’s. The fish cake starter was piping hot and big enough for two! Accompanied by a bright pea purée... delicious. We both opted for mussels and fries. So fresh and tasty but not overpowered by garlic or herbs like some mussel dishes can be. The lemon cheesecake was fluffy and light and my granola crumble composed of poached fruits, tasty crumble and a quality vanilla ice cream. This could definitely be shared too. Service was discreet and relaxed, the whole experience was one I’ll want to repeat time and time again. How lucky we are in Birchington to have such quality establishments literally on my doorstep. A definite A*
Have been to The Powell for Sunday roast on many occasions as it is so good. Plenty of food, freshly cooked and really tasty. Great customer service and friendly staff. Would recommend booking as it does get busy. Bring back the Marathon bar dessert though, wasn’t on the menu this time and it’s the best!! 😮☹️
Had an amazing meal here on a Saturday night. Food was very impressive, a very high standard for the cost of the meal. All 3 courses were incredibly delicious, my husband and I remarked we hadn’t had food this good in a while. We will definitely be returning for more! Hot fondant chocolate pudding was the best I’ve had!
The pie of the day, chicken and guinea fowl, was amazing!
Nice ambient all around. Overall good food but the roast beef was a bit overcooked/dry. We had to ask for the bill several times.
Went to the Powell bar for the first time on the 17th Feb. Had a great lunch celebrating my mothers birthday. Cannot thank or praise the staff enough.
Good food and generally good service. Would return a gain
Pleasant environment, wide range on menu, good service,
Friend had come down for visit, she had fish and chips and I had the fish special. Both were excellent, the food is always to a very high standard and I am always recommending to friends. Thank you
Very nice Sunday lunch. Took my mum for her birthday and she also really enjoyed it. The roast beef and all the trimmings was delicious as was the chocolate fondant desert. The staff were polite and helpful. Was a tad disappointed the sticky toffee pudding was not on the menu. I'll keep my fingers crossed its available on my next visit.
I had the shoulder of lamb meal and it was excellent, thoroughly enjoyed it. My son had the steak burger which was also excellent and my cousin had the mussels which he really enjoyed. Always a lovely atmosphere!
Food very good all 6 of us enjoyed the meal.
Large dishes so only one had a sweet just of ice cream.
Our waitress was very helpful.
The room was quite cold but the weather was also could of been the heating wasn't on.
Food is quote expensive but it is goid quilaty.
The building gas been renovated to a high standard
Lovely Sunday lunch! The beef was beautifully cooked, and the stuffing was so nice. Vegetables presented nicely. Sticky toffee pudding was one of the best I’ve had.
We took mum,sister,and brother in law,for out late Christmas gathering,came on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Would certainly tell friends and family, food was very tasty and filling.
Fabulous food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Our favourite place for Sunday Lunch 😁. the Marathan Bar dessert is to die for!
Fabulous drinks menu & amazing food.
Always have a lovely meal here. Lovely servers and such tasty food. Looking forward to our Christmas Eve meal with all the family!!
Very friendly staff with excellent quick table service. Delightful food with a good choice of starters, mains and sweets.
Plenty of space between tables allowing private conversation.
Would certainly reccomend to friends and will definitely return soon.
One of the best Sunday Roast we have experienced at a restaurant in a long time, lovely atmosphere and venue is great. Looking forward to trying the main menu.
Everything was fantastic thank you. See you again soon.
Never been before. The interior decor was outstanding. Food was great. Service was even better. Will definitely return....and soon!

Superb Saturday night evening meal, waitress attentive, food was very nice, large group at top end but with the way the tables are positioned my husband and I could have good conversation.....overall a very nice evening, would definitely recommend!!
booked this for a pre firework lunch. Food was fantastic and staff are really nice and friendly. Very clean and tidy. We sat in the little nook so was very casual and comfortable. The main restaurant looked lovely but we didnt go in there.

Extremely enjoyable evening good food good service great atmosphere
Had lovely meal on a Friday night. The restaurant wasn't overly busy. Very nice dining area as well as bar area which is separate. Will definitely go again and would recommemd.
Lovely food, friendly service. On this occasion we had Sunday lunch with friends but have been for large family gatherings or just the two of us -always enjoyable.
Excellent service and food throughout our meal. Restaurant was pleasant and set aside from main bar area which was nice. Staff really friendly and efficient; overall a lovely meal.
Quiet dining area but noise from the bar was not good, close bar door please. Food good but wine list was in a different league - did not marry with menu.
