Built in 1802 by the owner of the local brewery, The East Kent Hotel is embedded in Whitstable history. We are passionate about great food and drink. It’s about the whole experience, lots of little things done right. Our vision is to create a culture of sharing. Food brings people together and our menu does just that. Our Newley refurbished pub offers some of Shepherd Neame’s fines ales and lagers. The bar showcases wines from around the world including Australia. Shepherd Neame is Britain’s oldest brewer. Nestled in the medieval market town of Faversham in Kent, brewing has continued on this site for centuries.
