Welcome to The Pilot Inn, Dungeness

The Pilot Inn is the Famous Family run Pub-Restaurant situated a stones throw (and there's a lot of them around) from the sea, in the heart of the breathtaking Dungeness National Nature Reserve.

Steeped in the smuggling history of Romney Marsh, its inception followed the luring aground of the Spanish vessel, Alfresia, in 1633. They murdered the crew and looted the cargo of spirits. The ship was used to build the original Pilot and some of the original timbers remain in the bar today.
