Great value for money and affordable for a family. We had booked for a late sitting and yet were not made to feel as if we needed to rush our meal. Far from it the staff could not do enough to help. Sea Bass was great as was the steak. We have visited this pub and restaurant many many times... More

We have been threatening to visit this pub for quite a while and finally got around to Booking a table. There is a small Restuarant area behind the pub area. The menu was varied and plenty of options. I had the sea bass which was from the specials board. It was really tasty. It was a very friendly atmosphere. We... More

We arrived at 6 on Saturday night, we hadn't booked a table but they accommodated us even though they were fully booked. The girls that served us were lovely, really friendly and bubbly and all too happy to help. We had soup and moules for starters, both were delicious. Lamb stew and the Monumental burger for mains.... yummy!! We had... More

Managed to book a table at the last minute on a Saturday evening. Pub caters for drinkers and family dining. Not the quickest service bt the food was of a decent standard.

We booked a table for a large group (9 adults plus kids!) but this didn't phase the staff who were friendly and accommodating from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and they didn't mind the children going outside to play between courses which helped us parents relax and enjoy our dinner too. The food was fantastic, I can... More

Finally managed to return here whilst visiting friends in Whitstable & far as I was concerned there was only 1 place to have Sunday lunch. We was lucky to get a table as they had a couple of large bookings, I'm not surprised. The food was as good as last time as was the service, I hope it remains so... More
