Booked into to have the Sunday roast with a group of friends. All staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Thoroughly recommend!

Really nice cute little pub, the staff were really friendly, went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Nice food for a good price. 9 of us had roast dinner and the service was great. Would definitely come again!

Our “go to” pub in Whitstable. Great staff who can’t do enough for you - way above the call of duty! Excellent bands also.

We visited the Inn on 18th August 2018 and the food was excellent. The steaks were perfectly cooked and very tasty. All courses were presented beautifully. The staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The decor was relaxing and definitely visit again...More

We had a lovely drink in the beer garden. A nice escape from the busy beach on a sunny bank holiday only reason it gets four instead of five is because my partner didn't like the men's loo because there was no toilet seat.

I like the look of the pub and the garden but the gin selection is woeful with just Gordon’s. It was £6 too. This is typical of Sheps pubs. 12 taps offers a wide selection and for the same price. It would be nice to...More

Friendly pub, with a decent selection of beers and wine, which really feels like it’s packed with locals. Great open mic nights and a real fresh air find amongst all the bad value tourist traps in other areas of Whitstable. A rare find, highly recommended
