“Best pub in the town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

I love this place. Been going here with my family since I was born. My Grandad and I would ride along the front to the pub and he would tell me stories of when it flooded and how everyone had beer beer! Great food, lovely location, been open for years! Defo my favorite! Enjoy!

“Excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

The location of this pub is superb, definitely the best attribute. A great place to enjoy a drink as the sun goes down. There's a good choice of ale and the staff are very friendly. It's not the best pub in Whitstable but still worth a visit, especially if you have a dog.

“Sunny Sunday drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

After eating in Whitstable Harbour we strolled along the front to this pub. It was packed but the bar staff were cool, calm and collected. Good atmosphere. Band setting up to play the afternoon. Great sea front position. What more do you want from a place to relax on a Sunday?

“An average pub that relies on its location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Wonderful location, very beautiful and serene when the sun is setting. However, the pub isn't as friendly as you'd expect considering most of the clientèle are tourists. Infinitely better to sit outside rather than inside. Also it's another classic example of a pub complacent in it's popularity and knowing it can afford to charge high prices.

“Great place for a sunny afternoon drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Admittedly weather was good for March which did really add to the experience, however as a place for a quiet drink with a good view it was perfect. Staff were really friendly when serving and the beer garden on the beach is a truly lovely place to sit and enjoy a drink. Could easily spend an hour or two here.
