Welcome to the Hampton Inn, Herne Bay

Hampton-on-Sea's only remaining building, the Hampton Inn is a tale of survival, stunning views and superb food…



On entering our premises, please use the hand santiser provided and following the one door / one door out route marked.  Table booking is for customers requiring to eat only and is strongly recommended.  As the weather closes in, we’d like to request customers not to turn up for booked tables until 5-10 mins before their timed booking. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions and social distancing, we have very little seating space and cannot accommodate standing customers.

Also in line with COVID restrictions, we can only accept bookings of 6 people or less. We cannot accept parties split over two tables or more as we have found this to be problematic.

Customers that haven't booked or are joining us for drinks only will be asked to complete a "track and trace" form before purchase but please note that drinking tables are very limited but obviously we'll do our best to accommodate you.

We'd like to thank all our customers who have respected and accepted the present restrictions and help us to keep everyone safe in these difficult times.



Many a pub can claim to be the ‘heart of the village’, but The Hampton Inn near Herne Bay is the village. It’s the only remaining building in Hampton-on-Sea - a coastal Kent community that was engulfed by the sea and abandoned at the turn of the 20th century.

For solitude and sea views, not many pubs in the UK can beat this place. With no neighbouring properties, there are uninterrupted views over the ocean on three sides of the pub, and a near-360 degree vantage point from which to savour spectacular sunsets.

It’s not just the unique views that bring people to The Hampton Inn though. A warm, bright and welcoming pub, thanks to a recent refurbishment, this place also enjoys a great reputation for food and drink - with locally caught seafood something of a speciality, and local ales from Shepherd Neame available on tap.

There’s a large garden, and a number of benches strategically placed at the front of the pub - because there’s not much better than sitting with a perfect pint, and watching the world go by.

Dining at the Hampton Inn

With a prime spot right on the coast, it’s no surprise that The Hampton Inn serves up some superb locally caught seafood - with whitebait, mussels and sea-bass all on the menu alongside classic beer-battered cod and chips.  There are plenty more traditional favourites to choose from too, including steaks and grills and vegetarian options.  If it’s just liquid refreshment you’re seeking, you can enjoy distinctive Kentish ales from Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame, along with a range of excellent lagers and wine.
