Mid evening visit. Not much has changed here except an extra real ale on and most of the local closed brewery artefacts gone.

No dark beers on as they were exploding in the back room. Read that some vandal broke several windows in York St including a window in the Boat. Scum.

Website.

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). 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 dispense there. Under new ownership in spring 2018.

We have visited this pub 146 times, seen 206 different beers and tried 139 of them.
