The Lantern Inn

The Lantern is a beautiful Country Inn.
A place to eat, drink & sleep
Enveloped in the Kent countryside and a stone’s throw from the coast, we serve locally
sourced, seasonal food in a relaxed and welcoming setting


Fresh. Quality. Homemade.

At The Lantern Inn, we support British farmers and artisan producers and our restaurant menu reflects this. Whether you’re dining in at our Dover restaurant or taking away our woodfired pizza, food from our bar menu, or Sunday roasts. We serve seriously good food, in an unserious way.

Call 01304 852276 to book your table.


With 14 state-of-the-art lines, a range of premium soft drinks, fines wines, spirits, and carefully curated cocktails, you’re bound to find a drink to enjoy by the fire or outside in our gorgeous sun-soaked garden.

Beautiful boutique accommodation. Set in the picturesque village of Martin, nestled between Deal, Dover and the beaches of St Margaret’s-at-Cliffe & Kingsdown. Each of The Lantern’s accommodation options offer the perfect base for immersing yourself in the Kent countryside and exploring the coast.
