user reviews of the Shepherd and Cock, Burmarsh

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

Friendly staff, locals and dog.

Adams and Whitstable on tap. Had the Whitestable which was good.

Pub grub on offer, I had sausage and mash for a reasonable price.

A nice pub for a quiet drink and a simple lunch plus a little chat with the locals!

Been to this pub a couple of times now, not eaten there yet. The beer is very good, Adnams etc, as is the atmosphere and the warm welcome you'll get. Stuck in a time warp, in a good way. A choice of straight glass or jug, no music, just good beer in a good pub. These places used to be the norm, now they are very rare to find.
Check it out, you will not be disappointed.

I would just like to point out that this pub is called the Shepherd and Crook NOT cock but I like this place and agree with the other reviews. Its a time piece, seriously, if you like Allbarone or other chain pubs then avoid this as this is no plastic pub. Its as old as time it self and the quality is still there. Really nice beer, decent sandwich although the food is not much more adventurous than a ploughmans and sitting in the beer garden with a view of a red telephone box and a road with the occasional car passing every 5 mins is so welcome after living in London for so long. Just go in for a pint.

We were led here by TomTom - I've got the CAMRA PoI file and picked this one as a lunchtime stop on the way down to the ferry. Always a going to be a lucky dip without a description but all the more fun for that.

It's one of those little museum pieces. A glance through to the kitchen and a visit to the loos reveals that everything is kept clean, tidy and up to date, but of course the main room has changed little since the 50s, and it's worth a visit just for that, though we should indeed gloss over the signed photo of Enoch Powell (oops I've said it).

Adnam's and Arundel on the handpumps. Driving so I had the Admans which was fine,and the sandwiches we had were pub-traditional, perfect for what we wanted.

I think I was the youngest person present for a while, and I'm 50. Pubs like this are vanishing all the time because both the customers and the people willing to run them are dying out. It's a great shame but times do change. Catch it while you can.

We visited here one Saturday lunchtime in May, having seen it mentioned on another website.Rather like going back in time to the 70's, with photos of a young Ted Heath (boo, hiss), Churchill, and a former leader manque whose name I dare not mention. Politics aside, we found the atmosphere very friendly, with good fish and chips, and Ham 'n eggs, and interesting beer-they're Cask Marque accredited. Adnams is the regular beer on hand pumps, backed up on our visit by Marston's Merrie Monk. I'm sure that this once was really something: now its a seasonal mild, but still of some merit. I found it rounded and malty, and perhaps at 4.6 too heavy for a lunch time. Worth it all the same. Dog friendly pub.
Yes, we like it.
