Evening visit soon after opening and full with a good crowd of customers. Service was good and friendly. We were amused by the banner outside the pub opposite which read (amongst other things) real ale £2.95 and lower down advertising Happy Hour £3 per pint.
Four Candles - Whitsun Bitter4.30GoodA good traditional copper coloured bitter ale.
Four Candles - Plum Porter4.70Not Tried
Four Candles - Citra Single Hop4.80Not Tried

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in St Peter's, Kent, CT10 2AT.

Located in Sowell Street in former shop premises, converted to become one of Thanet's ever increasing population of Micropubs. Like the other Micropubs which are becoming a popular part of the East Kent drinking scene this shop conversion is a street corner former shop building with its entrance front door on the corner itself. The real ales and cider are served direct by gravity from casks in the rear temperature controlled stillage room. Access to the toilet is via the stillage room. First opened on the evening of Thursday 9th August 2012 just in time to benefit from the Broadstairs Folk Week starting the very next day. Although the pub name is prompted by a Two Ronnies TV sketch please do not try buying here any hoes, plugs, saw tips, peas, pumps, washers or even billhooks. Just beer and cider should do. A small in-house brewery installation was subsequently made here.

We have visited this pub 42 times, seen 84 different beers and tried 51 of them.
