Good surroundings, nice atmosphere. A little limited on the selection of beer but understandable what with covid. Good location. Friendly and attentive staff. Beers came out quickly when we ordered (from our table- no bar service at present due to to covid).

Try putting some beers on. Last I looked was no beers on and owner was absent and doesn't seem interested in this place anymore.

Good pub in the centre of town with a good selection of beers. There was a DJ playing at the weekend and was lively with a good atmosphere.

A revisit for one of our group so happy to accompany him. Bit of a surprise on entry - was it a pub or kindergarten? Well-behaved children from babes-in-arms to toddlers, possibly sheltering from the inclement weather but seemingly comfortably nestled in, was unexpected. Typical micropub style, bit spit-and-sawdust, ramshackle eclectic mix of furniture, choice of ales - but also a choice of lagers & ciders. Confusingly their web site is not for the venue I visited!

Just of the seafront, is this lovely ale and cider house. Cracking selection of ales, ciders and Perry's. Lovely atmosphere with locals, youll always find someone to have a chat with. Local folk nights are busy but great. Lovely snacks on offer, love the cheese board. Real sense of real margate here.
