About the Pub

Food now dominates, mainly seafood and fish, with oysters on display. Beers are from Whitstable Brewery, and may be bottled. Stone floor and wooden seating, but the main feature is the large picture windows giving superb views of the estuary. Superb beachside location.

Sometimes closed for private functions (can be booked for weddings etc). Always check website. In the summer, it will probably be open 12-9 every day for food and drink.
