I had walked by the Racing Greyhound several times during my numerous visits to Ramsgate and Broadstairs. This time, we decided to stop and try out their Sunday Roast (6,95!). Since we have a dog, we were not allowed in the Restaurant but they have...More

Questions & Answers
In response to the 'managers' reply to my review. First off, I am no ex employee, nor a friend or family of an ex employee. Second. My first post was not slander, it is fact. Your staff can do& say what they like to the customers, and they have no consequences, unfortunately what consequences there are, fall on the customers, even when a customer is innocent. I say again, I saw what happened on band night. I saw a barmaid threaten a customer, I saw said barmaid put on her water works, and storm off, to the point she stalled her car 4/5 times out of anger. I also seen the so called owner of the pub abuse and pointing fingers into the customers face. I can name the barmaid for everyone to see if necessary? As well as the owner. I would also like to point out your last comment on my review. You say to return or not to return, you're happy to take my money. This is not a very mature comment at all, and if anything, proves to everyone that you have no concern for your customers. I'm glad you have posted a picture of my previous review, because people shall see how disappointing it is, that not only the staff think it's okay to abuse customers, but so do the owners.
