Lovely pub with very friendly staff and a good collection of beers. Plenty of seating inside as well as lots of tables on the beach. Definitely worth the walk down the beach to visit.

We went to the old Neptune for Xmas day drinks and had a great time, very atmospheric, cosy and authentic pub. Luckily we got a table and had a great time. Didn't try any food, but the beers and ciders are very well kept andf th estaff work very hard to serve everyone as quickly as possible.

A well known pub located on the beach in Whitstable. The interior is traditional but the floor is uneven and the bar matches with a slope that makes your beer 'lean' to one side. Happy friendly service. Standard pub grub menu. Outside the pub has a large outdoor seating area (picnic benches and tables), this is very popular in the... More

Lots of locals and visitors were there and some were eating. We managed to get a little table at the back of the pub and sat with... More

As per the title, this is the perfect spot for a seaside pint in the sun. The food is good, but stick to the traditional pub food rather than expecting Michelin star quality from the more expansive menus on the item. Would happily return to drink in the sun. Big shout to Tony who makes the venue

The Old Neptune is a really lovely pub and in a great location. We have visited it many times now and hope that the service would get better. The women who serve behind the bar could smile and make you feel welcome. I guess they know the pub will attract lots of people, which it does, so they don't have... More
