The East Quay Building is a licensed wedding venue in Whitstable Harbour with direct sea views. The venue, the original oyster grading room of the Seasalter and Ham Fishery, has a large dining room, dance floor, stage and open-plan kitchen. The venue also has a mezzanine level, also with sea views and a small bar.

When booking the venue for your wedding you have absolute freedom to plan your day and complete artistic licence to decorate. All prices quoted are for venue hire only. We are now taking Sunday and Bank Holiday wedding and event bookings. Contact our team for details:

We can, if your wish, organise every part of your special day. However if you would prefer you can put your own stamp on your day by organising bands, entertainers, decorators etc yourselves. This not only makes your day unique but can help to keep costs down!

If you are looking for a unique venue for meetings and corporate events please see our sister venue the Hotel Continetal (a link is available at the bottom of this page).

2015 Updates & Future Plans

We are planning to close the Lobster Shack @ East Quay restaurant in June 2015 and will be re-opening in the Brewery Bar next door. We will be installing fish fryers so we can offer fish & chips and the extensive seafood menu the Lobster Shack currently offers. These changes will mean we have a restaurant open on a more consistent basis and customers will not have to worry about us being closed for private functions.  Please keep up to date on our twitter page @EastQuay or for more information please call us on 01227 772 157.
