Reconnecting with past and decided to pop in here for a drink. Lovely place, friendly and welcoming bar staff. Loved the decor with all the musical art work. Looked like music was a big influencing factor and had live bands as well. Did try and book a room so we could stay but they were fully booked which speaks volumes...

Best location in Whitstable - right on the high street. Fabulous pub - full of character and with the best beer garden. Bands are brilliant, as is the food. Book in advance as it is very popular and with good reason. Rooms are fantastic and comfy/stylish (says my 13 year old).

If you're looking for posh this is not for you. If you are looking for a good, comfortable bed to sleep in, a clean room,lovely staff and service, and a great breakfast then it is. We stayed 2 nights and would have loved to stay longer. We will definite be going back.

Popped in here for a drink and we had heard music the previous night. Service was quite poor so we only stopped for one I think it must have been a quiet night but at times it seemed a very popular place.

We took a spur-of-the-moment drive to Whitstable on a Sunday. Didn't find too many places to eat anything let alone a pub roast. Got lucky when the Duke of Cumberland had some cancellations in its restaurant, got taken to a cosy restaurant out back of the pub, toasty warm and complete with candles. You get a choice of 6 different...

Very very dog friendly, their Tapas, served from Wed to Sun, I believe, either in their restaurant or bar, is the best. They just keep chucking beautiful dishes at you and if you can't eat it all, they bag it up so u can take it home. ( breakfast or the dogs, haha)

My boyfriend and I stayed here as we were watching a gig in the pub. The pub has a great interior as well as a cute beer garden with bird feeders and plants growing. The staff are all very friendly and helpful too. The room upstairs was well designed and really clean and tidy. They provide tea/ coffee making facilities....

“I would think the noise is the same in most rooms as the roads run each side, noisy at weekends as hotel is a great music venue.”

“In saying all the above we stayed between Christmas and new year so guess that affected the price... All rooms are quirky and different....”
