Friday lunchtime - very busy and service slow (as seems to be the norm in 'spoons). No rush though and we sat outside in the sunshine on the sea-facing veranda with about 100 others. Very impressed with the refurbishment of this iconic seaside building. A lot of pumps turned round or "coming soon". Just noted the couple I had plus a couple of more unusual ales on.

4 Guests on, 6 available soons and 9 Ruddles, Abbott and gloombar. When the guests go off they are not being replaced but the regulars are. 90 min wait for food. I had a pint but after I queued 20 mins for another one I was told I had to join a queue though I should have been next. Sophie the young barmaid told me to join behind 7 others. No thank you. Customer isnt always right in this place.

Just back from holiday and had to visit. 18 handpumps in action. But 9 of them had Ruddles, Abbot and Gloombar. 2 sorry not availables leaving 7 beers of which we tried two. Very noisy. Lots of youngsters. I counted 10 bouncers so we should feel safe. Meal deals all more expensive than any other spoons ive been in.

The pub is found in Ramsgate, Kent, CT11 8LS.

This building opened as a Wetherspoon's on Tuesday 29 August 2017 and is probably the largest Wetherspoon's in the country. It was designed as a dance hall by architect Stanley Davenport Adshead in 1903 and in later years operated as a casino.

We have visited this pub 6 times, seen 12 different beers and tried 8 of them.
