Lighthouse50 The Strand
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.
Real ales from Kent breweries, such as Wantsum, are dispensed from the auto tilt stillage in the bar and even the keg lagers and beers come 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. Once a month the pub hosts a ticket-only event featuring more established bands.
There's plenty of free on-street parking.
Dogs are welcome - the revolving doors can be adjusted to admit the larger or more nervous pooch!
