I meant to write this review last month after I celebrated my birthday with a few friends here. I had previously booked my meal at another well known pub in Herne Bay who informed me at the last minute that they had double-booked me and could no longer accommodate the amount of people I required. Being that this was two... More

Have been for lunch twice in the last month, both times we had very long waiting times first for the order to be taken and then over an hour to have the food appear. The food was OK, only passable.

Please note: since my dining experience at this Inn I am aware that the management has changed hands so I only hope that this review for a meal some time ago will help the new managers/owners to know what not to do! Although, what I don't know is whether they have a new chef - perhaps the new management would... More

Well worth a visit especially if you're walking from/to Whitstable along the coast path. Spotlessly clean, amazing sea views, delicious beer and coffees.

Definitely worth popping in for lunch if you're in the area. Fresh food and great value with an extensive menu, including options for vegetarians and child portions. We had an excellent roast dinner for 10 of us and had great friendly service. 🍷
