I ate at La Trappiste on Saturday evening. Although busy, a table was found for us and the service was quite good. However, I tried to order an ale from the back of the beer menu - I think there were 6 or 7 listed. They did not have the ale I requested, or several others - only 2 ales left. I decided to go with the local ale, as one does - Gallant Ale from Ramsgate. The waiter told me that it was a big bottle - 75cl and actually asked twice if I was ok with that - I agreed. It wasn't until the bill was presented after our meals that I realised the bottle of beer cost £12.95! My fish and chips only cost £10.50! The food was fantastic, but I'd rather be warned about the price of the beer than the size of the bottle as I most certainly would have declined. I have since discovered La Trappiste are charging double the normal cost of this beer. Totally unnecessary and has defiitely put me off returning.
