Really good

A great pub. Friendly because everyone knows everyone and if you are new and a nice person those people will make you feel welcome. Bar staff are friendly even when it’s really busy and they are stressed, if you are good to them they are good back.

Great place to visit

The East Kent Arms has changed so much over the years and has become the place of choice for so many people. It’s so friendly and the bar staff are great. They really do make you feel welcome. Regular music including live bands, kareoke, Singo Bingo and a great choice of drinks including cocktails.

Clicky with horrible barstaff
Aug 2021 • Friends
This place is getting worse! The atmosphere is clicky and two particular bar staff completely petty and make you feel uncomfortable - Penny and Paul- was ignored for ages and this isn't the first time. Shame as I used to like this pub a lot but now I'd rather spend my money where I'm not made to feel like crap

Unacceptable
Jun 2021 • Couples
We visited this establishment for a drink on way back from evening meal. The young lady who was on duty on the door was doing her job by asking people to sit down whilst in the pub. This is at present the law due to Covid restrictions. She was asked by the landlord to stop asking people to sit down. She left the premises as she been undermined in her duties.

Brilliant Owner

Picked up a few ciders from down the road and the bag they were packed in split and smashed outside of the East Kent Arms. Owner was outside and saw it happen and decided to help me clean up. Also gave me a free cider to make up for the cider that I’d lost. Top guy, cheers mate! 👍🏼
