Lunch time visit. The pub now opens at 16:00 but the guv opened the door and showed us around this newly refurbished pub. Sheps have not done a bad job and most of the original features remain intact. The exterior tiling now looks very smart indeed. A pity that we were too early in the day to get a beer.

Mid evening visit. 1st time here for many years. Although opened out retains many original features. Just locals in on a misty spring night. Traditional landlord and landlady, the former seemed to be finger bandaged after a dog bite (if I heard rightly).

Shepherd Neame - Spitfire Gold4.10AcceptableAt £3.80 I expected something wonderful not wishy washy. Thats Sheps for you.

Long time since I was last here. The beer range was a little disappointing.

A reasonable crowd in on a very hot afternoon. The beach was packed just as it used to be in the sixties, certainly the busiest that I can remember it since my childhood. Some redecoration is planned for this pub soon, I hope that they don't wreck it.

Lunchtime, and a first time in, and with a pal from Buxton down too. Nice, a proper Sheps type pub I thought, friendly bar lady. Impressed. Not listing/scoring these days.

Early afternoon, we sat in the rear bar with the comfort of a real fire on a very cold afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Muddy Water4.50ExcellentBrewed on the Pilot plant for the Broadstairs Blues Festival, hence the name, but I still found it odd to ask for a pint of muddy water. The beer tasted a bit like a weaker version of Bishops Finger.

Peered through the window and saw they had the porter on, don't think I've ever rushed into a pub quicker!

The pub is found in Broadstairs, Kent, CT10 1ET.

Just up the hill from the harbour, a multi roomed pub now opened out, with a lot of character. The bar is ornate and wooden and the pub is in CAMRA's National pub inventory of unspoilt interiors. Closed for significant refurbishment in mid October 2018 upon retirement of long term licensees and re-opened in January 2019 with a significant emphasis on food.

We have visited this pub 28 times, seen 19 different beers and tried 14 of them.
