I have been here several times in the past and it seems to have got worse as time goes by. We visited on a surprising sunny Saturday in February. Bar service was slow and pretty grumpy. I understand it was busy but being rude isn't...More

The Neptune is a great asset to Whitstable. A pub right on the beach with picnic tables right on the shingle in front of the sea. Inside, the rustic accommodation is charming and comforting on a bad weather day. The bar staff are efficient despite...More

Had lunch here today, friendly welcome, food freshly cooked, and arrived quickly, we had the fish and chips, which was good. Pub clean and tables spotless. We have eaten here before, in the summer, table outside, first time inside. Dog friendly which is a bonus

I'd rewrite the lyrics to include a visit to the Old Neptune - half a bitter shandy and battered oysters. Although bustling with activity the staff where friendly and helpful (brilliant at locating stray foodies). Modestly priced food was fresh, appetising and filling.
