Contrary to that picture of Pete Doherty and an obscenely large plate, sorry, metal tray, of beans and eggs and stuff, Margate is actually a prime location for some locally caught, daintily-plated, small plates. If you’re into the popular photo sharing and boast-enabling app Instagram, you may well have seen it around. The seafood bar is on the High Street, a little further down from the 2p and claw machines, and it’s somewhere you need to check out. The menu changes depending on the daily catch, but it’s bound to be pretty exquisite. Crab on green beans, cumin-rubbed raw trout, and melt-in-your-mouth stewed squid with sweet tomatoes gives you a general gist of deliciousness. They also specialise in English-made wine and the changing BTG list is great. Best of all is that unlike Angela’s, its equally excellent sibling restaurant, Dory’s remains walk-in only. Which suits the er, less organised day-tripper.
