Blakes of Dover52 Castle Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A short walk from the town centre and bus station, this pleasant cellar bar can be easily missed.
The stone-flagged room is a quiet haven from the bustle of the town where a good selection of real ales from handpumps and stillage is on offer. This is complemented by ciders from local cidermakers such as East Stour and Broomfield, and a good range of whiskies.
A small courtyard garden provides a pleasant place to relax in summer.
Lunches are available, including excellent sandwiches.
