My pet hate.... waiting at the bar, bar staff busy sorting out Ice Cream orders, and they don't even bother to acknowledge you.

Lovely looking external - bright, gastro internal - three beers from Shepherds Neame. I know... I had ten minutes to look at the them, whilst holding a £20 aloft in the hope they might swap it for something.

Left, disgruntled, and went next door.

From my time living here in the early 2000, this was a pub which had a board outside taking great pains to point out that the name wasn't intended as a racial slur but was historic. This was a pleasant pub, clearly aimed at those with a bit more money to spend.
I'd return if passing.

An old looking town pub set amongst a few narrow pedestrianised lanes probably once workers cottages but now bijou shops and cafes. The old feel vanishes on entering, the interior is modernised leaving little of obvious character. The ceiling and lower walls are clad in pastel cream and grey boarding, seating is mixed with an unusual circular area divided quarterly in the middle. An outdoor semi covered patio faces onto the street. Lots of chalkboards behind the bar with wine and gin lists, also rather facile quotations. Food looks a big player although not too fancy, snacks such as pork pies with piccalilli are available.
Shepherd Neame beers, only three on, Spitfire, Spitfire Gold and Whitstable Bay. £4.30 for the Spitfire. Service best described as perfunctory. A person on an adjoining table left without her hat so I duly took it up to the bar and explained. When I left a little while later it was still on the counter top.
