About the Pub

This superb pub is situated on the far outskirts of Broadstairs, close to Joss Bay and North Foreland golf course. The present building dates from 1913, although the hostelry dates back to 1704. There is a very fine large external wall sign reminding of the pub's Tomson & Wotton Brewery past. The ales, which change on a continual basis, come from all around the country and include local brews. To the rear of the house is a garden where children are welcome. Children under 12 are not generally allowed in the bars, except on special occasions. It has a separate saloon and public bar; and in keeping with times past when pubs charged different prices between the public bar and 'better' rooms the White Swan is now believed to be the only pub in the whole of UK that keeps up this tradition, with a 4p difference between the public and saloon bars. Long may this continue!
