Welcome to Eddie Gilberts

Eddie Gilbert’s is a quality fishmonger, a gourmet fish and chip shop and a fine restaurant with a Michelin trained chef here in the heart of bustling beautiful Ramsgate.

Conceived by Jonny Dunhill some years ago, The philosophy is simple; to sell the finest quality food sourced as locally as possible.

We buy fish direct from the local fishing boats every day. We use local potatoes and vegetable growers and source our meats from Kent. We use our award winning local brewer for beer, and also feature Kent wines in the restaurant.

Our staff are trained and dedicated to giving customers the very best service, whether they visit the shop, buy fish & chips to take home or eat in our beautiful new restaurant on the first floor.
Jonny himself moved from London seven years ago, where he had supplied the finest restaurants and hotels with oysters and shellfish for twelve years. Here he met the capital’s finest chefs and restaurateurs, famous and not so famous!

On moving to Ramsgate, the need for a fishmonger in the town was very clear to him, as was the demand for quality fish & chips and fine restaurants to reflect the fantastic variety and abundance of local fish and other produce.

The fishmonger opened in 2007, and won the ‘Taste of Kent Awards Best Fish Retailer’ in Kent within six months! The restaurant and the fish and chips opened in October 2009.

“A proper British seaside fish experience…at no time in the past century, except at the very end of it, would you meet anyone who knew how to cook this well, without going to France…The fish was extemely good, succulent and rich…They’re going to bankrupt themselves if they keep up these portion sizes.” – Eddie, Editor of Sunday Telegraph
