Review of Old Neptune

Old Neptune

To sit outside and enjoy a drink on the beach, watching the sun set, on a beautiful Autumn evening...what could be lovelier? To people that complain that the prices are slightly higher than an average pub, we would respond with...the setting and atmosphere are WAY above an ordinary pub to be found in England!
We will never forget the evening we sat here,with live music filtering outside, the gentle sounds of laughter and the beautiful sight of the sun going down. The customers were a mix of locals and holidaymakers, and everyone was very relaxed and chatted with each other.
The pub itself is simple and authentic, with an atmosphere of years gone by. We loved it and will jump at the chance to return if we get the chance.
We suggest to the reviewers here that did not appreciate this unique experience, that they go to an inland pub and look at a brick wall if they want a cheaper night out. You get what you pay for and this was priceless.

Popped into The Old Neptune mainly to shelter from a downpour.We stayed for an hour or so. The decor was so interesting we were intrigued by it all. I agree with others that it was overpriced especially the food. We decided not to eat there after all. But we liked the look of the place.

What a good spot right on the beach. I had a couple of beers in here Saturday afternoon. Very busy, the food looked average and the bar staff (girls) looked like they needed cheering up, a smile wouldn't have gone a miss. Interesting place with good old pictures and info on the walls inside the pub. I heard that a band was playing Saturday night but didn't stay to see them. Samuel Adams on draught which I hadn't tried before, an American beer somewhere between a lager and a bitter. I won't rush back but would suggest you give it a try.

Sadly this is yet another poorly run pub in Whitstable, its obvious that they do not care,the site is right on the beach and most visiting this pub are tourists who will only ever go once.

The interior of the pub is dirty, it does not look like they have cleaned it for weeks, the gents was a joke, in some respects if it were legal you would be better off going in the sea, at least the tide would take the effluent away One pub to miss this year if you can.

Price guide:
Two Pints of lager and a packet of crisps £10.00 Friday aug 23rd 2013
BBQ Burger for two £8.00 ( no chips or plate or salad), we did not eat there as the burger chef (sic) had no hand wash , except filthy water in a bucket.

When we came back home despite not eating there we were both sick as dogs, NOT recommended.
