“Welcoming, warm, cosy and clean”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

I recently visited Ramsgate for the first time to compete in the Thanet 20 mile run. The course passed the Belle Vue Tavern twice – once just after mile 3 and again after mile 7 – and from both directions it look very inviting. Having finished the race my buddy and I hobbled our way back to the pub where we were welcomed with 2 pints of Masterbrew, some serviettes to mop our brows and a big smile. The weather was horrible so the roaring fire was particularly good to see and the locals were all very friendly. I used the gents toilets to change out of my wet gear and was pleased to find them immaculately clean. We didn’t have any food but those around us who were eating were chatting away and looked happy with their meals. We didn’t venture onto the terrace as the wind was howling and it was pouring with rain. The views through the window were nonetheless fantastic and you can imagine the garden being very popular in nice weather. A great find and I will definitely bring my wife along for a visit in the summer.

Reviewed October 29, 2011

An oldie world pub and resturant, great views over the bay ,steeped in history,a wonderful garden with first class furniture.Bar meals or resturant upstairs prices are good ,portions. of food good , staff friendly.
On a summers day sit outside ,take in the view,enjoy the standard of food and drink .on a winters day sit by the real fire, warm your cold hands ,have a hot meal,and relax.
One of the best places to try in Kent, you will not be sorry. Book for the Sunday Roast,as tables go fast.

“Fantastic place for a drink with a sunset view”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

Have visited the Belle Vue numerous times, I'm afraid I can't vouch for the food, but it has to be one of the best places to sit with a drink and watch the sun go down. It's a huge paved and decked 'garden', right on the top of the cliff, with nice tables, well spaced and broken up with greenery. Very nice wine, friendly staff and what's more it's a lovely 30 minute walk from Ramsgate town centre, along the beach or West Cliff. One of these days I'll sample the food, but until then, we'll be going back frenquetly to sample the views!
