Three hand pulled real ales on , as well as a great milk stout by the New Zealand brewery Casseels , which is fabulous . In addition about 10 ciders available as well as great gin selection . Robin who was the bar man is brilliant , very knowledgeable about all the drinks , as well as being more than happy to give you a taster , before u order . There was live music from 8 oclock , a great folk singer called Steve Gifford who played a mixture of his own songs and covers of bands such as tbe kinks , beatles . Steve was excellent and did a great set . This a small cosy pub , with great atmosphere, and superb beers and ciders, well worth a visit if you are in the old part of Margate

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.

Excellent traditional pub, all wooden floors, furniture and a cracking fireplace with a large woodburner. As well as 16 pumps on the go and 8 polypins of a variety of ciders there was live music, what else could you ask for?
