See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

"This narrow corner pub extends from the High Street to the beach. The middle part was the alehouse in 1798. The restaurant with sea views and upstairs deck for drinkers were added in 2010. Nautical maps and pictures featured on the walls reflect the landlord's interests. (Highlights are the paintings of Rorkes Drift and the battle of Isandlwana.) Biddenden cider is always available and an August bank holiday beer festival is a major part of the Sandgate Sea festival. In 2015, expansion opened up a new room for families and functions. The Amazing Brewery Company started in 2015, Cotter VC bitter and other beers are sometimes available."
