Mid evening visit, good thriving pub but was stiflingly hot and eventually staff opened the separate 2 front doors to create airflow. Sad to see more fizz beer than cask being sold.

First visit to the revamped pub. 2 beers on plus lots of expensive Key kegs not sold in pints but 1/3 or 2/3rds. One stout worked out at £9 a pint. Well it was 13%. Hipster pub, whatever that is?

Closed at end of service today. Pub's Facebook page said: It is with deep regret and heavy heart that as of closing time Saturday 20th May, despite our best efforts, The Ravensgate Arms will call time at the bar for one last time. We would like to offer our heartfelt apologies to all our customers, We are all human and by nature fallible, mistakes are made and lessons learnt. However it has not proved possible to convince authorities that what has taken place here is part of a bigger picture and like all deserve a chance to learn, grow and continue to provide the community with a much needed service. We hope that in the future Ramsgate will find a place for you all to continue building the amazing community that has grown within these four walls and beyond. It has been an absolute pleasure and a joy to provide you with, to the best of our abilities, a place we could all feel a part of. We would also like to thank you all for your continued support and friendship and express how much we have enjoyed our time serving this great community.

A quiet afternoon, some builders/decorators were working in the small bar making some alterations to the pub.

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.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wiper and True - Kaleidoscope 4.00ExcellentFrom Key-Keg. Golden and hazy. Fragrant and spicy hop tastes.
Blackjack - New Deck4.20GoodA balanced, fruity, Golden Ale with a long, bitter finish.
