Always like doing business in a Pub. My friendly Accountant who lives near the Pub always have a drink while chatting about business and old freinds we both knew and still know. Very cosy Pub I used it when I first moved down from London back in 1966. Changed a lot since then but has real Pub character. Nice food... More

Nice little pub had some lovely food there on a couple of occasions then the same dish wasn't as good (different chef). Then had scampi and it was very weird maybe re frozen with water oozing out, I returned it and the service was rubbish got only a few quid off. Never went back because of this shame as had... More

Took my mum for lunch . She only had a ham sandwich and I only had the garlic mushrooms and chorizo. Which was cooked to perfection and tasted delicious. The staff were very friendly and very attentive.

We stopped by on our way home from a Wednesday afternoon in Whitstable as we had spotted the monument before and had been told it was worth a visit. It was pretty quiet when we arrived, a handful of locals in the bar and just us in the restaurant (it was early evening). Food choices were pretty good and varied,... More

A massive thank you to Lara for organising a fantastic time for my daughter's 18th last night. Nothing was too much trouble and she made us feel very welcome. The decorations were fab and thank you to the girls serving behind the bar - Olivia and Taylor along with Lara. The buffet food was fab and will be back!

Visited with my father and his partner. Friendly attentive bar staff but the steak and chips that we all had was awful. The sirloin steak was tough and the chips were terrible. The peppercorn sauce was extremely thin. Only a 10 walk from the house my dad has moved to ..... such a shame. We have no returned since.... what... More

Just got home from a lovely night out with friends for their daughter's 18th birthday. A massive thank you to the girls behind the bar who put up with this bearded idiot gassing on at them all night and using his card for every damn round! 😂 Seriously, good service, lovely location - what's not to love?

Really nice down to earth pub. I have just moved to the area so had to trust Trip Adviser to go out for Sunday lunch. Food was excellent, good price and if you eat in the bar very dog friendly. You wouldn't know you were eating in the bar as the service was excellent.
