Early evening visit. I have reached the conclusion that Ramsgate is blessed with some very nice pubs. I’m tempted to describe this one as being a bit ‘Hackney-on-Sea”, but I won’t - I think Andrew's word 'Bohemian' is better.

Late afternoon and a nice crowd in including the owner of a Thanet micropub. I was told that this pub is no longer associated with Late Knights Brewery which explains why none of their beers were available.

Evening. My first visit here and immediately struck by the apparent better organisation and beer quality than at some of Late Knights's London pubs. Cosy inside and playing up, one suspects, to the slow but steady gentrification of Ramsgate.
