Ideally located opposite the main beach, with a flower-bedecked summer balcony offering the famous sunset views. This Wetherspoon is a quiet daytime pub, while on Friday and Saturday evenings recorded music is played. Good-value food and a selection of ales including Kent and regional guest beer are offered. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Its name derives from a large roving mechanical elephant that gave rides on the promenade in the 1950s.
