The pub is found in Westgate-on-Sea, Kent, CT8 8RE.

Another of the new generation of Micropubs. This single storey building is situated close to Westgate-on-Sea railway station in an alleyway between the Carlton Cinema and Coral's bookmakers. The pub has an almost complete collection of Good Beer Guides from 1975 onwards. A mixture of breweriana and kitchenalia adorn the walls and lampshades are made from upside-down colanders. Usually 4 real ales on sale served from a cooled cellar room in the corner which has a viewing window. 2014 Thanet CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year. Changed hands in May 2016 as the original owners Pete and Gwyneth retired from the business.

We have visited this pub 44 times, seen 90 different beers and tried 59 of them.
