Wheelers

8 High Street Whitstable Kent CT5 1BQ

A tiny place, with only about 16 covers in the restaurant out back, plus room for four or five more perching at the seafood counter in front. The tables are cramped and close together and it’s not licensed (so bring a bottle – there are a couple of off-licences nearby), but the seafood is awesome, by far the best in town. The crab cakes are to die for; the fish fresh and locally sourced, and the oysters, of course are delicious. You can't miss it either, the tall pink building looks intriguing from outside - a fun exterior to the seriously good food served within. For a summer weekend, you’ll need to book months in advance. Cash only.
