About the Pub

A traditional 18th-century village pub a short walk uphill from the sea.

There are three beamed rooms surrounding a central bar. Local historical photos adorn the walls and the frosted glass front door advertises the long-closed local brewery, Thompsons of Walmer. In the winter months there's a welcoming log fire in the public bar.

The back bar opens onto a spacious dining/family room, from which there is access to a quiet rear courtyard which has a skittle alley and covered, heated smoking area.

Three real ales feature with the regular ale being Goacher's House Ale. Cider from Kentish Pip is served during the summer.

Home-made food is served in the evenings and at lunch time on Saturday and Sunday with a roast on Sunday.

Events include a regular quiz nights, a guitar club and other fund-raising events.
