Fodor's Expert Review The Allotment
This charming and slightly quirky restaurant in the center of Dover doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't be fooled—delicious, creative Modern British meals are served within. The unusual name comes from an old-fashioned British tradition of communal gardens for city dwellers: the "allotment" is a small strip of land allocated to a family with no garden who wants to grow its own vegetables. It's appropriate then that plenty of local and regional ingredients find their way onto the menu; try the homemade seasonal terrine to start, followed by 28-day-aged sirloin with Stilton cream sauce, or perhaps the house speciality, a seafood stew made with shrimp, calamari, and red mullet, in a garlic and white wine sauce.
