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

High Street micro-pub with a narrow and unusually dark interior and an eclectic selection of pictures and artefacts (many dating back to Victoria and Edwardian times, by the look of things) on the walls. Another unusual feature was the background music, but this was not intrusive. Five real ales, apparently on handpump but actually served on gravity from the rear cool room: two from Kent Brewery - Session Pale and Black Gold (£3.60) - Gadd's No 5, Black Iris Snake Eyes and something from York.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Black Dog

An interesting little micro this one, a cross between an antiques shop or a period drama from Victorian times. The interior consisted of lots of oak timber work and heritage green wallpapered walls, and a good assortment of bric a brac. The choice of beer was also excellent, Brewsters Rutherkin, ELB Foundation, Gadds Old School Bitter, Triple FFF IPA and Kent Session pale ale. I went for the Brewsters and the Kent Session, both were in great shape. Fellow drinkers were all friendly and chatty, definitely worth spending a bit of time in here. There is also a very good chip shop across the road. We went for the scampi and chips and ate them walking along the street, proper English street food after a few beers.

I like the micropub concept having been in a few now, they attract people with common interests, this and the compact area encourages conversation between strangers, here was no different. As usual, a shop conversion, high benches at rows of hewn tables along each side make good use of the space even if the high benches are not your bag. The décor is colourful to say the least and includes items of interest such as a model of the Hindenburg airship, a vintage ciggy machine, lots of Toby jugs and all sorts of framed artefacts. There is a rifle, handgun and a yard of ale above the bar.
The pub name is from the Led Zeppelin track of the same name, bits of Led Zep memorabilia are around especially in the toilets as well as on the pub feature T-shirts available for sale. The soundtrack on my visit was bluesy and good listening.
The five handpumps on the rear bar are just to advertise what is on, a chalkboard duplicates the information. They are on stillage in a temperature controlled room beyond. Kent Brewery Cobnut, Hopdeamon Incubus, Milk Street Funky Monkey, Kent Brewery Saison plus Session Pale. Food is snack related, sausage rolls, pork pies, scotch eggs, pickled eggs, toasted ham and cheese sarnies. Beer takeaways available in 3.5 pint containers........why didn't I get one for the train home?
An excellent pub, one of Whitstable's must visits.
