See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Formerly the Lord Nelson, this family-run pub has a great position overlooking Walmer Green.
Walk in through the unusual revolving doors and you find yourself in a large room furnished with simple wooden chairs and tables. There's an imposing metal-topped bar on the left, facing the musician's stage opposite.
Outside, the front patio is a great place for a drink in summer while watching life go by.
Hand-pulled real ales are principally from Kent breweries, such as Time & Tide, and even the keg lagers and beers are from local breweries. Real cider is from Kentish Pip.
Primarily a music venue, the pub strives to bring an eclectic mix of music representing the best of local talent and beyond. The pub frequently hosts ticket-only events featuring more established bands.
Other events include open-mic, food pop-up and comedy nights. Their Sunday lunch is proving very popular.
There's plenty of free on-street parking.
Dogs are welcome, and the revolving doors can be adjusted to admit the larger or more nervous pooch!Kent’s Public House Archive: Lighthouse, Walmer
