I had never visited this pub before but a pal of mine who knew it suggested we should meet there for a few ales. I'm so glad he did, it's a lovely little bar, lots of quirky curios on display, comfortable seats and great beers, chatting to the barman, I was told they always had sessions pale ale and a Wantsum brew, the sessions was excellent as was the Wantsum Black Pig. We'll definitely put the Black Dog on our list of pubs worth visiting.

Found this friendly whacky pub on our way back to our accomodation - certainly the best Gin in town and fantastic craft beers loved the local people

Waiting for the Guns n Roses tribute band in the Umbrella Centre we stumbled upon this great pub and has a couple of drinks in the bar - 7.45 to 8.30 pm. As I was driving we kept to elderflower cordial and a 0.5% abv Adnams Ghost Ship beer (£5). Plenty of things to look at the bar (and in the toilets). Great barman - what is there not to like and enjoy. I will definitely come here again but this time sample some real ales and ciders!

If you like a place that is warm comfortable with excellent beers and a massive collection curios filling every inch of the walls... this is the place. From the log burner at the door to the zeppelin on the wall this was a cracking find. Dont be put off by the owner he is very friendly really))) as are the bar staff. Dog friendly. Warm. Quirky.. great beer..

Heard good things about the place & was excited to visit. Upon arrival with my wife, our baby and her brother, I bought a round of drinks and had to pay cash because the card machine was not working. I took the drinks back to our table to find the barman had asked my wife to leave immediately as baby’s are not allowed in the pub. There was no offer to refund our drinks and no sign on the door to say “no kids”. She didn’t even have the chance to finish the drink I had just bought. I appreciate that kids in pubs does not appeal to everyone and adults go to this bar to enjoy a craft beer - their selection is very good. It’s just the way we were treated left a lot to be desired. There’s a lot of other bars in Whitstable with a great selection of beers and next time I want a pint I’ll be going to one of them.
