Good solid friendly pub. Sadly limited selection of cask ale but good food. Pleasant garden with bowling alley. Great big ginger tom cat in window (Usually). Only a little way from the beach. Return visitor.

This is a free house but unfortunately only has big-brand very bland beer from Wells and Youngs (on our visit Young's Gold and Courage best bitter). Could they not consider the fact that there are more than 20 small local breweries in Kent producing far better beers?

Cosy, but disappointed by the beer.

They have 2 pumps but only one was on. Had the Robinsons Dizzy blond at 3.20 a pint.
The food served seems to be plentyfull but not served all day.

Kingsdown is a small place to wonder around and busses run about every hour from Dover.

Second stop of the evening - again GrahamA gets it right! The Castle Eden was was served up in fine fettle, by a smiling young lady in equally fine fettle!

The menu looked good, and the food also looked good - all home made fare by the look of it. Carnivores and Vegetarian alike are catered for - Someone on a nearby table had a Vegetable Korma which looked most appetising - fair praise from a dyed-in-the-wool red meat eater. Definitely good, solid pub grub taher than gastro!

The lighting was rather bright, but at least it meant you could see what you're drinking. Lots of old photographs and pictures decorate the walls, so with the bright lighting, it means you don't have to squint if you're a myopic old fart like me!

The King's Head has the edge, but the Risng Sun is certainly worth a visit, and as such gets 6/10.

If you're going down to the Zetland Arms ( out of the door, turn sharp right down the side of the pub ) take a torch if it's dark. It's an unmade road with "sleeping policemen", potholes and other trip hazards. There are no street lamps on the approach to The Zetland Arms.

Only popped in to buy some beer to take away but the pub seemed pleasant. The Castle Eden bitter was certainly tasty.

There is a beer garden out the back and I believe food is available most of the time - although we didn't try it.
