|We enjoyed the walk from Whitstable, past the merrily-painted beach huts, which tended to be named after places in Britain's colonial past for some reason. I must rename my garden shed "The Relief Of Mafeking" upon my return.|
For all that, this pub wasn't open, so we will have to try again another day. To be fair, reviewers did warn us.
On that point, I tip my hat to their penmanship for this and for other pubs, with a dash of Vivian Stanshall here, a sprinkling of Oscar Wilde there, and a dollop of Spike Milligan by the side. Not that they were so derivative as to hide their welcome originality, and for which I offer my sincere commendation.
Incidentally, the late and much-lamented Mr. Stanshall used to come to Whitstable, for many a Summer as a child, with his Irish aunt, I read.
I can't rate the pub, so I'll give the reviews ten-out-of-ten instead.

|Some great cheese tossed about today so what with a few drops of Leviathan and the odd pistachio it was the dog's bollards. Hoping to see me old mate Jack for a quick bite too but you can't have everything. I was doing my ordinary rounds and missed the ends of Farewell, but the Citra and Coppertop deserved a good licking. You can't beat this pub for a lively atmosphere and for once I don't get patted on the head which is always most annoying. By the way. Whose got my ball?|

|To the BITE user who questioned what they put in the barrels to make the ales taste so great, I have heard so many rumours but Martyn confirmed that it's just the aged old oak barrels they store them in. Luke the barman is a very tolerant fellow, a real charmer and this is very rare these days. I can only say that he was VERY willing to share his previous homoerotic dalliances with us all, and this is a refreshing change for someone so closeted. My partner and I go back as often as we can. I would recommend everyone - gay, straight or transgender, pops in here whenever they are in the area, an open mind is a definite requirement.|
