  • We are so happy and very excited. We were happy to be in the top 10 and then the top three and so to win is simply amazing. It will help to bring more people to restaurant. This will help to create more awareness and appreciation of local produce, our customers appreciate local seafood and the fishermen who provide it. We are very blessed to be here in Kent, the garden of England and to have the sea as well, we are spoilt for choice for top quality produce to use. This is our first restaurant and the Taste of Kent Awards is something we aspired to. We respect the other finalists enormously and so to be a part of this is amazing.Buoy & OysterKent Restaurant of the Year
