A fish & chip meal after our walk.
Jul 2021
We visited the Saxon Shore public house after walking a section of the Saxon Shore Way between Herne Bay and Reculver and back on a mid-week afternoon in July. As is our custom, we were after a fish and chip meal after our walk and decided on the Wetherspoons outlet here.
The inside is reasonable sized and was fairly busy with tables separated by Perspex screens. The interior is decorated in the corporate colours though did not seem to have a strong ‘local’ theme as found in some other Wetherspoons outlets that we have visited. The interior looked clean, tidy and well maintained. Food and drink ordering is via smart phone though you can ask a passing waitress as well if you are unsure how to use the app. Our first problem was that our table carried no identification number so we had to enquire about this first.
Having made our order, the drinks came fairly quickly and the food was not far behind. The fish looked to be freshly cooked and the chips were crisp. The waitress who brought the meals was friendly and helpful and checked back later to see if everything was ok.
The portion size was sufficient for what we needed and the prices as always are very budget friendly, with our two meals and drinks coming in at around £13.50.
Would certainly consider a revisit if we were in Herne Bay again.

Need to get some real bar staff who have a genuine passion for their work.
Nobody seemed to want to be there after lockdown with some staff obviously dragging their personal problems into work aswell.
Lots of, now disgruntled, regulars have had their noses put out of joint by some of these rude, overbearing kids.
What happened to respect and manners?

BEER NOT FAR FROM THE PIER
So I had a little pit stop here today at the Saxon shore Wetherspoons in Herne bay. Never been to Herne bay for a visit. Must say was NOT disappointed and was also wasnot disappointed with this pub.

Complete genius who thought of this location right opposite the kiddies play park! A cold beverage whilst the kiddies play.

It’s not a large Wetherspoon but it’s just right. Seemed clean inside and wasn’t too busy. No queuing up at the bar which is always good.

Only thing I would say is if you was just a couple and wanted to sit outside on a nice day I think you would be lucky. With only 3 or 4 tables they would get taken quick.

Ffantastic food at good prices
Jul 2017 • Family
Only just starting visiting this pub, but the food is excellent and really good prices. Lamb shank was lovely, in fact all the food we have had has been good. Does appear to have the odd solo drinker who looks like they live there, but it is a pub!

Birthday visit

We used the weatherspoons app to order our food and drinks and it was excellent. Drinks arrived within 4 minutes and food about 10 minutes. Food was very good and service good too. Will definitely use the app again as it avoids the endless queueing up to order at the busy bar.

Definitely go again.

We went on a Tuesday evening and had an excellent meal. The total bill for 3 people including drinks came to £23. The meal was freshly cooked and well presented.
Toilets clean and well kept. Tables nicely spaced out, some with excellent views of the seafront. Parking along road or in car parks nearby.
Would definitely go again when in Herne Bay, Kent.
