Evening visit, my first to the new location. Now just a pub rather than a micropub. Seems more emphasis on keg than real ales now too. Good to see bar billiards upstairs. The pub still has an expectation to set up the brewery but apparently efforts are currently concentrated in getting the delicatessen set up in the old micropub premises just a few doors along.

This is a new pub which has replaced the Thirty-Nine Steps Ale House which was a few doors down the road. A much larger pub than the one it has replaced and now with ales on handpump rather than on gravity dispense, a selection of keg and craft ales (whatever they are) is also available. We found that the high ceilings made the place seem a bit noisy and thought that a few soft furnishings or baffles might help the acoustics.

Two visits to the opening night of the Broadstairs brewery. The queue was way down the street. More like a beer festival. Loads of craft ales and 4 real ales on. A bar billiards table is upstairs. Well worth a visit.
Fuller's - ESB5.50ExcellentGreat beer and at £3 a great price. Went well with the pork pies.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Broadstairs, Kent, CT10 1LR.

First incarnation was a former Pet Food shop converted into a Micropub in 5 Charlotte Street specialising in cask ales and ciders. Opened on the 30th November 2012. The casks were visible racked behind the bar behind glass frontage. High tables with similarly high wall mounted bench seating abounds. Plans to relocate to a nearby much larger street corner premise at 11-13 Charlotte Street came to fruition on Friday Friday 5th May 2017 and this incorporates a brewhouse for what will be Broadstairs Town Brewery perhaps in 2018. 8 handpumps and 10 keg beer taps in the new location. Bar billiards upstairs where is some extra seating too. The new venue is too large to be a Micropub so best called an alehouse or really just a pub.

We have visited this pub 58 times, seen 107 different beers and tried 74 of them.
