The Captain Digby is possibly one of the oldest drinking houses in Thanet!
An award winning family restaurant in Thanet, one of the most popular places to dine all year round. Lord Holland originally built it as a ‘Bede House’ between 1763 & 1768. This was a place for drinking and entertainment by Lord Holland’s guests from the impressive Holland House some hundred yards to the south…. But for many years now it has been The Captain Digby, popularly known by our regular customers as ‘The Digby’ a Family friendly Bar & Restaurant catering for all ages overlooking ‘Kingsgate Bay’ along the coast of Broadstairs.
