The Dovorian story
Here at The Dovorian, we are proud of the long-standing history of our family café, restaurant and takeaway that has been in Dover since 1996. Our name itself is derived from the term used to describe someone from Dover. Because we’re passionate about the local area, we also ensure that all of our ingredients are sourced from local suppliers.
How it all began
The Dovorian first opened its doors in 1996.
Our building is a long-standing part of Dover, sitting in the centre of the coastal town and dating back to 1890. Coming under our ownership in 2019, the business has since seen a brand new refurbishment of the fish & chip takeaway. Aside from that, we have made sure to retain all of the original aspects of the business, as being true Dovorians ourselves, it was important for us to honour its heritage.
About our food
Here at The Dovorian, our two main ingredients are quality food and great service.
Our café is best known for our full English Breakfasts which people come back for time and time again.
We are as passionate about the quality of our fish and chips. Our fresh-cut potatoes are sourced locally, as well as our fish which is transported via the UK’s leading freezer vessel – the Kirkella.
What’s more, we fry all of our food in the oleic sunflower oil, Flavoil which is low in saturated fat and contains no additives.
Where we are today
Our most recent addition to the business is our fish & chip takeaway in Dover, which can be ordered for delivery online, on our website or through UberEats and Just Eat. We continue to work with charities that are important to us and the local community and we are currently supporting the Pegasus PlayScheme and The National Autistic Society.
Today, The Dovorian are continuously reinvesting in new appliances and equipment to maintain our high safety standards within the business and top food quality.
We are very much looking forward to reopening the café after lockdown sadly saw us close its doors in 2020. Keep your eyes peeled for updates!
