The Playa

The Playa is 50 years old in 2018. Along with “Cliff Edge”, this was one of the first buildings along the leas.

Welcome to The Playa!

The Playa is a traditional family-run restaurant and bar situated at Minster On Sea on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. Come dine with us, or have a few drinks with friends in serene settings, while taking in some of the most spectacular coastal views in South East England.

We want to give our customers a memorable experience from the moment they walk in the door. We will not let you down on quality, service or price. Whether you are in for one drink or a meal.

Drop in to see us today or call us on 01795 873059 to book a table for food or special occasion.


At The Playa we offer you great food, great service, great company and a warm welcome. We pride ourselves on our fresh, home cooked food that consists of local high quality produce. We visit Billingsgate and Smithfield’s market to buy our fish and meat specials.

Our chefs make all our meals fresh to order using only the finest ingredients. So whatever you are in the mood for, we are sure to have something on the menu to suit, including:
