At least that is what OH says, but I like their blackcurrant cider served with a traditional pork pie. Ideal stop for lunch or early evening as it often closes early but at weekends it plays it by ear and can be open later. Great...More

This little pub packs so much in. Wide choice of beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks and the occasional coffee. There is also locally sourced food. Meat raffle on Friday where profits go to local charities. It is situated at the back of the Carlton Cinema....More

Only the Best ale is served here under the watchful eye of the landlord young John Good rustic atmosphere the art of conversation had been renewed here but no politics allowed. Cleanest pipes in Kent = the Best pint .All welcome .

Another great Thanet Micropub. Hidden away down an alley it's worth hunting for. Five real ales and three ciders all straight from the barrel. And you can have a pork pie with it if you want. Small, idiosyncratic, wonderful. Don't miss it !
