Plenty of seaside delight in Kent
Just down the road is The Oyster Pearl Pub and Restaurant and when we do venture out we are tempted to pop inside. I always like to try the local ale when travelling and in this neck of the woods Spitfire is the pint of choice, brewed by Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer, trading since 1698.
You cannot help but admire a company that has weathered countless recessions, survived and conquered. Many businesses would like to know its success, I am sure. Over 300 years of experience certainly produces a tasty pint. Accompanied with a splendid and highly recommended home made tomato
soup it is followed by beer battered fish and chips, which we all thoroughly enjoy. “Oh you must try one of the desserts,” recommends our extremely helpful waitress. So we all decide on the poached pear with cream and chocolate. All the food is beautifully presented. It is rare to have the luxury of such a fine restaurant right on your doorstep. It is such a joy to be presented with delicious food that you cannot make at home.
