user reviews of the Handsome Sam, Whitstable

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Back in Whitstable, our first port of call was this micropub, apparently named after a cat. It's a rather strange place. There is some rather eclectic furniture and digital screens display the ciders, gins and spirits, whilst ales are displayed on blackboards. Rather annoyingly, the brewers and ale names were not listed - just the type of beer and strength. So I've no idea what was what. But I noted an America Session (3.8%), a Four Candles beer (4%), a Winter Bitter (4.2%) and a Cascade Blonde (6.2%). The latter was limited to 6 pints per session! Ciders were Lilley's Mango Cider, Rhubarb Cider, Lemon & Lime Cider & Elderflower Cider, Biddenden's Dry & Bushels, Weston's Old Rosie and a Vintage Cider procured from Morrison's of all places. The barman seemed friendly enough. But this all seemed a little weird. We then sauntered round the corner to the Whitstable Labour Club (not listed on here) for an altogether different experience.

Real ale place with no atmosphere and strange opening times.
