About the Pub

Recently refurbished, this modern bar/restaurant is situated at the foot of the White Cliffs with panoramic views over the sea. The pub has a strong nautical theme from the large window at the front, engraved with the Plimsoll Line, to the porthole style decorations around the pub.

Outside, the terrace and garden are ideal spots to lounge while watching the shipping on the Straits of Dover.

The beer selection features three regular ales and one seasonal from Shepherd Neame.

A wide variety of food is available from sandwiches through to a specials menu with a daily fish selection. Fish and chips takeaway is also available. BBQs are held on the terrace during the summer months.

Be wary of using your mobile as the signal comes from France!
