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

Micro-pub located at the far end of the main shopping street just beyond the railway bridge. Usual sort of arrangement inside, although the suspended Snowman is a bit different and two of the four tables are really single-sided pews. There is a very compact counter in one corner, but the real ales are served on gravity from a cool room in the other corner, together with a selection of ciders. I went for the Rother Valley Hot & Bothered (£3.40, and the remaining selection was Old Hector from Four Candles, Boadicea from Rother Valley and Sharp's Sea Fury.

A double fronted micropub by the railway overbridge as one comes into Whitstable. A shop conversion,light and airy.Eclectic range of furnishings, including those auctioneer's rostrums as seen at the Butchers Arms in Herne. The beer (Kent Pale Ale in my case) is served from some kind of temperature controlled tent affair. A friendly and informative guv'nor interacting with a clientele of a certain age on my visit on a June Sunday afternoon.
Much appreciated.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Handsome Sam

Another excellent micro that's well worth a visit and only a five minute walk back to the railway station. The interior consists of one fairly large front room with a small bar in the far right hand corner, with the entrance to the cold opposite. Five ales, all on gravity, so we went for the Gadds Dr Sunshine, very good too. The pub was busy on our Saturday Eve visit, still we managed to get seated at a couple of judge benches along the back wall. Big silhouette of Handsome Sam over the entrance door.
