The pub is found in Ramsgate, Kent, CT11 9DS.

Micropub opened on Good Friday 2013 on the site of the Hovelling Boat pub which closed in 1909 (and re-opened 104 years later). A highly polished Tomson and Wotton tray adorns one of the walls, a reminder of the superb beers that once came from the brewery up the road from this pub. Local closed breweries' artefacts adorn the walls and shelves including a haunting Mr Allbright metal face which would once have decorated a brewery dray. No lager or keg beers are sold here. Other past lives of the building have been as a florist's shop and a fancy gift shop. A menu of the beer and cider on offer is shown on a wall blackboard then your drink is fetched (with table service) from a back room having been served on gravity there.

We have visited this pub 96 times, seen 134 different beers and tried 89 of them.
