We always try to pop in on a Friday night for live music if we're in town!! Always seem to be a good musician / band or group on!! All the years I've been in I've never been disappointed with the act!

Stopped here for lunch on day trip to Broadstairs. Whitebait was delicious and also chips. The 2 ladies behind the bar were very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.
