Whitstable: Cheap & Delicious?

relizabeth Jul 24, 2009 03:56 AM

We are headed there this weekend. Can't afford The Sportsman, alas. Any other suggestions of where to lunch and dine?

Much thanks!

    There's another recent thread on the board about Whitstable, but my recommendation would be Wheelers - you can either sit at the bar and have a delicious assortment of seafood (potted shrimps, mussels, crab, oysters, etc) or book for their tiny and eccentric restaurant in the room behind - the food is great and it's BYO so makes it very reasonable.

      Wheelers is lovely but you usually have to book way in advance. There's a new one opened above Deco 5 wine bar at the other end of town, opposite the bingo hall, which is gorgeous and has lovely food. Crayfish tails are highly recommended!

        Fair point for the restaurant, but you dont have to book for the front seafood bar at Wheelers - just turn up.
