Liked this place for its character, busy, lively and with a bit of movie history thrown in. Gorgeous location, sea, sailing boats and a pebbly beach. Good old style pub experience, I felt right at home and comfortable in here. Will be back if I am in the area.

We always walk along the beach from Alberta Caravan Park in Seasalter to Whitstable and without fail make a pitstop at this pub. Always a warm, friendly welcome

Good location on sea front with outdoor area when weather permits. Bit awkward to get to with lots of steps. Plastic glasses for outside are sensible: beer, service. prices etc were all average

This is a great traditional pub with spectacular views over the sea and great friendly staff, always busy but well worth the squeeze and with good local live music

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.
