I can't speak from a restaurant or hotel point of view (yet!) but I visit Whitstable a fair amount and always make sure I visit the Duke. Great value for drinks, very fast service and the atmosphere is brilliant. They have live bands every week and everyone is always having a good time, no sense of hostility from over drunk... More

The bar staff are nice and the bands are generally good however the owners are horrible, vile people. They shouldn't be allowed near the public, their manners are awful and their language is atrocious. Will never step foot in there again and advise everyone else to do the same.

Went in for a post shopping drink on a weekday evening. Very, very friendly bar staff, with a great knowledge of the local brews. Lots of customers and a very nice vibe. Looks to be the place to be on a weekend night.

Went to the Duke for drink with family who were down for the week. Three and a half pints for well over £17! One pint was a premium beer but also cheap lager, pulled ale and half of cider- not exactly champagne! Same night was way cheaper in the 'Black Dog' and 'Pearsons' so will not be going back. I'm...

Just finished my fish and chips in joneses, thought a jar of late red would go down well. Got to bar to be told they were shut until 7.30. Something about a band. Another large party of punters turned away too. Must be doing well to be able to do that. A shame as I rate the place and the... More

I came here Sunday to watch a band, I found the pub to be old, tired, and grubby, the toilets the same, luckily 1 had a working lock on the door! I bought a drink and asked for a can and put a straw in it cause I didn't fancy drinking out of there glasses. There was a horrible scruffy... More

Nice pub, good selection of beers and often entertainment, spoilt for me by a brief encounter with a very rude pot man (so I thought) who barged past me, spilling my drink. Turning round to accept an apology only to be told that I was standing in the wrong place. I was speechless, even more so when I found out... More

I like unusual pubs and this one has character in spades from the lack of the usual big screen televisions to the furniture in what we found out was the eating area of the pub, the decor was also very interesting with picture hanging on the wall of famous singers from years gone by, we did not stay in the...
