Popped in today after walking my dog and ordered my drink and lunch at the bar, service was friendly and quick. Sat out in there beer garden which was buzzing with birds and the atmosphere was great. My lunch arrived which was there king prawn salad and it was delicious. . One very happy customer 😊

I popped in here for a quick bite with my parents. It's a strange mish mash of old radios and random pictures. Scruffy furniture and a huge stack of vinyl hiding in a corner. We then had the most amazing BLTs the bacon is home cured by the pub, the bread, salad and chips were to die for. All with...

Stopped here for the night en route to Dover. Clean comfortable room, good quality breakfast and incredibly helpful manager and staff. It's an old building with loads of character and a relaxed atmosphere so don't expect everything to be perfect, but it's good value for money when compared to other places in the area.

This pub had great décor I only popped in for a pint in the afternoon but would love to go back one evening they clearly host gigs here so seeing a local band would be great beer was good too, this is a large pub and needs the support of customers or it will close and become flats like all...

We stayed at this hotel in January 2016. We travelled with 4 friends who had paid for us to stay here so no idea of the cost. The room we had was very spacious and clean and very warm. The breakfasts was of good quality and big enough to set you up for the day. We had a meal in...

Eleven adults and four kids, seamless service and absolutely outstanding roasts. Special mention for the lamb which was pink perfection. Extremely generous portions. Meal at £15 a head and wine averaging £17 a bottle, the place is on the best form I've known in the eleven years I've been in whitstable. For comfortable, unpretentious and high quality food at this...

Visited this place recently for a meal with family and friends. The tapas meal was really delicious and more than plenty served up for the number of folk present. At £15 the meal was good value. We were served whole sea bass, delicious hot prawns,with roasted peppers and salad, steak slices, chicken with broccoli and baby potatoes. We returned home...

Stayed for a weekend at the Duke of Cumberland and loved it. Fantastic location in the heart of Whitstable. The rooms may not be luxurious but are adequate and good value. The full English breakfast is huge - not for the faint of heart. The large bar seemed to be full throughout the weekend with live music on offer a...

We had some very nice fish and chips / Prawn Salad last year. This year I came for a beer and a sandwich whilst the wife was shopping in the labyrinth on the high street. Pint was good but no bar food on a Sunday! I saw diners in on the dance floor (the restaurant) - but they had 'booked...
