Reviewed August 22, 2013

Beautiful view over Pegwell Bay, Ramsgate. We hadn't pre booked but staff were very accommodating, friendly and made up feel welcome right from the outset. The food was freshly cooked, excellent quality, value for money and very well presented. This was one of the best meals that we have had locally for a long time and will definitely be visiting again

“The best pub in Kent - probably!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

My husband and I together with numerous friends have visited The Belle Vue on numerous occasion. We have enjoyed every visit. The terrace overlooking the Bay is probably the best in Kent.

If you want a traditional Pub, which is meticulously clean (ladies, check out the toilets!), obviously well run and managed, serves excellent food, has excellent friendly staff and has outstanding sea views, then this is definitely the place for you.

It is a pity that some parents allow their children to spoil the tranquility for the vast majority, like a previous reviewer. There are no facilities here for children so get over it!

I hope the current owners of The Belle Vue continue to run their business in the current traditional English Pub manner and resist the temptation that so many others have succumbed to by installing a children's playground.

Well done Belle Vue Tavern.

“One of the few pubs with everything!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Where do you start with the Belle Vue? Fantastic location? Great view? Well kept ales? Excellent food? Brilliant service?
Well they all come as a package at the Belle Vue. I highly recommend it. Don't spoil yourself with the unbelievable views across Pegwell Bay from their beer garden. Eat in the restaurant upstairs and get even better views.
I've lived in this area for 28 years, discovered the Belle Vue about three months ago, and cannot fault it in any way, shape or form.
Give it a try.

“A family friendly pub that’s only friendly if you haven’t got kids”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great food, amazing views, staff friendly but let down by overpriced drinks and the inability to tolerate children, shut them kids up, control them kids, the owner waited till we had eaten and taken our money before commenting though and this is not the first time, the week before some poor couple got a tongue lashing about their 6 year old being noisy once again waited till they paid.
Amazing staff rude owner.
