Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Phoenix

Old-fashioned pub on the cricket ground side of town, well away from tourist central. Wedge-shaped building, although the partially opened-out two-part bar is largely rectangular (with the hint of a taper at the counter end). The main seating area is separated from a small lounge by a former fireplace now housing a wood-burner. Mix of furniture and traditional decor, with just about enough room for the advertised live music. Six of eight handpumps in operation, with Musket Fife & Drum and a seasonal selection from other Kent breweries - Rocking Robin Jingle Bell Rock, Wantsum Figgy Pudding, Whitstable Christmas Spirit and Hopfuzz Advent (£3.80) - plus Sprinhead Surrender. Worth the walk if you have a little time.

Close to the cricket ground, this pub has quite a choice of ales on. Appeared to have changed hands recently, but ales were excellent. We enjoyed RCH East Street Cream and Hop Back Summer Lightning. Also had ales from Otter, Skinners and Sharps. There was a pool table and outside seating area.

Town pub with village local feel. Excellant ever changing choice of real ale , good home cooked food at unblievable prices.
