Nice setting

Nice pub opposite sea. Plastic glasses if drinking outside which fair enough. Had run out of the local draught bitter which was a shame

Visited on a sunny Friday lunchtime and sat on beach with drink. Great views of Whitstable and the sea. Ladies behind the bar were friendly and helpful although quite busy. The inside of the pub was cosy and could imagine it being good for a visit in the Winter.

Plenty of tables to sit outside at, great variety of drinks available, really enjoy the atmosphere here. There is often a bbq going outside which is great. A regular stop when we visit Whitstable.

Right on the beach, it is nice to sit outside if the weather permits. Very busy at times. Serves food between 12 and 4 pm. Good pub grub with veggie options and a children's menu. Clean inside, but not many tables. Get there early!

Nice old pub which is actually on the beach. Only went for one drink during the day so didn't see the beach bar in action but it's a great spot.

Visited here on Saturday (whitstable oyster festival) afternoon. Great pub, friendly staff, felt like I were on a boat as the bar dipped at some points, all good. Was very busy but so was the whole of whitstable, loved that this pub sits on the beach, would visit again.

Difficult to write this one seeing as we now live in Whitstable! We've found all the pubs here to be very friendly and welcoming.... all but The Old Neptune.
