Lovely little bar with good staff with very good knowledge. Would have got 5 stars but there were two beers off at the time, which seems to be a little niggle across the board

We stopped by for a drink not knowing that they also have live music. There were a group of session musicians jamming for the evening and it was wonderful. It is quite a small venue so it was very cozy with a few people dancing. Very nice selection of ales and ciders. Very enjoyable evening.

over the last few years i have occasionally popped into this bar. Most recently i went yesterday 29th july 2016. The refurb is superb and really opens the place up, helps with natural light and makes it generally more accessible, a really good job well done.
However the prices are astronomical.
A pint of "India Electric" (or very similar name) was £4.70! For a pint of draft ale that really is steep, almost on a par with Scandinavian prices. I accept cheaper options were available and i could have left, it's just a shame because i got the feeling the refurb costs have been put entirely on the customer.
The staff were perfectly pleasant but unfortunately the young lady was dreadfully slow even though there were only 6 people in the bar and the young lad seemed more interesting in chatting to one customer than actually serving.
That said both were very friendly and despite the price this is still by far the best place for a proper beer in Thanet

From the outside and from other reviews I had high hopes. But with all but one of the brew dog pumps out, lemonade from a larger super market bottle clearly marked up at 49. That's about as high as I can go. Not impressed.

Has a lovely fire place at the back of the pb. Good priced drinks. Lovely bar tender and a lovely little pub for a chilled night out with friends. You can purchase bottles of wine to take home. Lovely piano man goes every sunday for entertainment.
