We were looking for a dog friendly pub for a meal after walking our dogs on the beach. I got the name from Doggy Friendly and phoned ahead to check. The warm welcome on the phone was echoed when we arrived in person and unlike some pubs whose actions don't match their words, the pub welcomed us and our dogs... More

I visited here with my family for Sunday lunch as it had been recommended, the food was nice and very reasonably priced, it's a nice little pub with mostly locals. There was a scruffy bloke playing the piano who was pretty good to be fair , what wasn't necessary was a couple of his drunk mates shouting and swearing encouragement... More

We were down at Herne Bay for the day and fancied a Pint, so went into the "Divers Arms". Quite a "Locals" Pub, but we were made very welcome when we went in. The service was good and friendly. There was music playing and the Barman was singing along with a couple of Locals. If you fancy a bit of... More

A very average pub with very average choice of beer and standard pub fare on offer but has been selected for some sort of short list (in the Sun?) as a top local.

Came down to herne for the airshow and popped in to use the loo but thought it rude if I didn't buy a pint . The whole place is outdated and its dirty, and un inviting. I won't get started on the toilets as they were disgusting and grim and dark. Very little eye contact with the staff and I... More

Thank you for visiting our 200 year old pub. I am sorry you did not enjoy the experience but I feel I must point out that you visited on the busiest day of the year, with in excess of a 1000 people passing thorough our small sea front establishment to use our toilets which consist of 1 ladies toilet cubical,...

The landlady, her staff & locals were welcoming, friendly and helpful with local knowledge. Good food, for which you can expect to wait at busy times, but it is cooked to order & portions are generous. Real ales from Shepherd Neame brewery. Live music on weekends.

The roast comes highly recommended so we tried it.....there was heaps of it, lots of veg & the crackling was fab! The roast potatoes were not crispy but I'll forgive them as the rest was so scrummy! No room for dessert sadly. Friendly staff & quick service.

Walked down from Whitstable along the coast to the horror of Herne Bay.(Sorry residents!). We were looking for a Sunday roast and the Divers Arms was offering just that. Though the tables were all booked, the staff spotted a table we could use before the bookee (is that a word, it is now!) arrived. We sat by an open fire... More
