Anyone who likes whitstable will know this spot facing the sunset , nearly, and will tell you that on a warm evening sitting at the Brewery bar's beach front is charming. So why would you open this palace of filth to serve huge sloppy oysters...More

Had a great lunch in here, 6 oysters followed by half a lobster. The beer was different but hit the spot. Great service and reasonably priced. Will definitely go back.
