Dungeness Snack Shack

Dungeness, Kent

Local Gem

The broad expanse of shingle stretches as far as the eye can see, dotted with quirky huts and the late Derek Jarman’s Prospect Cottage, with Dungeness power station looming in the distance. Here you'll discover a fishmongers and the weather-dependent Snack Shack – a 'fantastic find' serving cooked-to-order seafood from a hatch, to be eaten at picnic benches on the shingle. The brief menu reflects the day’s catch: there's always a griddled fish with fried potatoes but other options could include fat, juicy scallops on flatbread or an outstanding fisherman’s roll filled with two super-fresh fish fillets. Smoked cod chowder is a warming wintertime treat (weather permitting). Check the website for opening times.
