Warm, friendly traditional pub set in the centre of the fashionable seaside town of Whitstable. The pub has a long history stretching to 1750, details of which can be found on various pictures within the pub.

Ship Centurion Pub in Whitstable, Kent

The Birks family took over this Freehouse in 1996 and the pub has enjoyed success ever since largely due to their blend of traditional English and authentic German beer and food. They have also established an excellent reputation for their cask ales, supported by CAMRA and Cask Marque for many years as well as appearing in The Good Beer Guide throughout their ownership.

Jan Birks is now retired and Armin Birks sadly passed away in 2013, so it is now their son, Roland Birks, that runs the pub.

The pub has a well established group of regulars and is proud to nurture a real sense of community.

An Inn on the site of the present-day pub was first licensed in 1750 during the reign of George II. There is some confusion about it’s name, as the earliest records refer to it simply as “The Ship”, the use of the title “The Ship Centurion” not being found before 1845, in written records.
