Real Ale Ray left this review about The West Gate Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

Eight ales and two ciders to choose from on our visit. I went for the Whitstable Brewery Winkle Picker 4.5%, which only cost £2 a pint. So excellent value for a superb pint of beer. The front of the pub has the original timber trusses exposed and the bar was timber frame with old red brick inserts. The pub had good atmosphere from the locals and I much preferred this Spoons to the Ingoldsby the far side of town.

This is one of those Spoons that looks and feels like it might have been an original pub but I could find no evidence to support the theory. It's a much better place than the old school shop conversion in the town centre.
It's small for a Spoons with the bar area on the right and the rest of the building split into various areas. I visited twice, for a pint in the morning and something to eat later in the day.
The bar has ten hand pumps in all which had only one Available Soon and no doubling up. Beers available were the JDW Trio Of Doom, Caledonian Thunder Trail, Hawkshead Cumbrian 5 Hop, Bombardier, Whitstable East India Pale, Wantsum Montgomery and Milestone Boston Bitter. I went for the Five Hop (£2.19) which was in good nick and charged at the standard guest price. This price in itself is cheap for a Southern Spoons and I expected a tourist and student hot spot to be a lot dearer.
I thought this was a pretty good Spoons.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The West Gate Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

Quite a good 'spoons, with various seating areas in an attractive 17th-century listed building. Also has a rear conservatory extension and a small side patio. Ten handpumps available, with several local beers including two from Wantsum and others from elsewhere in Kent e.g. Westerham Hop Rocket (£2.60).
