The pub is found in Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 5JQ.

By Wetherspoon standards this is quite a small pub with a meandering layout. Situated on the sea front it has good views out to sea. The southeast coastline of England was once known as the Saxon Shore, from the military forts built along it during the late Roman occupation. Today, the Saxon Shore footpath passes along Central Parade and has given its name to this Wetherspoon pub.

We have visited this pub 23 times, seen 65 different beers and tried 25 of them.
