Good service, friendly staff, great food. I'll recommend to anyone. Oysters washed down with a pint of Guinness. Excellent cod & chips, All served quickly and professionally, even though the place was packed, the staff was very attentive and accommodating. We will most definitely came back.

This was a fun pub to visit as the only pub on the beach in the UK I believe. The food, however, was pretty basic and average unfortunately. A couple of local real ales on offer.

We visited the Old Neptune in Whitstable on a rather cold Sunday in February with our daughter’s family. Whitstable is easy to get to having a main line railway station within a reasonable walking distance of the harbour and there are plenty of (pay and display) car parks around though at £1.10 and hour (either long or short stay), we...

Do visit for the atmosphere and drinks but maybe... More

Second time here get inside and look at the bar you feel drunk looking at it as the thing slopes to the left great conversation piece .. sit outside at the tables watch the kids and the gentle lap of the waves , nice varied selection of food on offer too at reasonable prices
