beautiful sunny day on saturday in whitstable, perfect for a brisk walk towards seasalter and then back to the harbour.  on the way back a stroll through the shops, fish and chips from v c jones, and pizza slices from browns delis – perfect to take away and eat on the beach.   for a small seaside town, whitstable has an amazing choice of restaurants to choose from, but you need to plan ahead especially at a weekend and book in advance.

we always choose to eat at our favourite restauarant Jo Jo’s, a good half hour walk from the cottage up to the neighbouring tankerton beach, (or 10 mins in a car), but its great seafood tapas with a slightly moroccan feel – good value and you usually share dishes, just like spanish tapas.  you also bring your own alcohol, which again makes it less expensive than the usual restaurants.   the whitstable oyster  company restaurant is pricy, but offers consistently good food. both wheelers and the sportsman need essential bookings – in fact, i have never been able to get into wheelers oyster restaurant its so popular!  another of my favourite restaurants is salt marsh, though i havent been to their new location, using local grown and available food, it has a simple menu and is very good value.  pearsons has a great sunday lunch deal and has consistently good food.   samphire is good for brunch, and if you feel like something oriental, shangri la offers decent thai food.

  1. I’ll pass this blog onto a photographer I’m working with at the moment, who lives in Whitstable. He relocated there last year from Manchester, so I’m sure this will be a great guide for him. He was talking about Windy Corner cafe today, not sure if you know it, but it comes highly recommended by him?


  2. Excited for next weekend & our much needed couple of days break away from it all at Whitstable. Staying at 98 Island Wall & looking forward to walks into Seasalter – where i spent many childhood holidays!


  3. agree with all your restaurant suggestions but what about muccinis in tankerton its in jo jos old premises excellent italian kitchen saltmarsh in the duke is still great but personally i find jo jos a little too precious no tesco wine allowed !


      1. agree but went to salt marsh twice in august and wasnt disapointed plus the curry house ( whos name i can never remember ! ) opposite whitstable station is really good
