Incredible sunset over viking bay so we occupied a table in the window. Can't think of anywhere better at that moment.

Popped out for a couple in the afternoon. We were the only ones in but the barmaid was really friendly and the fire was going well so much worse places to be.

Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40GoodTasted like at least part of the pint had been sat in the pipes overnight but it was still perfectly nice overall.

Myself and my flatmate were bored so dropped in for a pint. Very quiet despite the celtic jam night being on, the people of Broadstairs need to sort themselves out.

Caledonian - Merman XXX4.80AcceptableHad a sourish aftertaste, possibly close to being on the turn. Still drinkable.

Usual Friday night crowd of older folks watching the music. Sat in the corner clapped away like the rest of them.

Still quite content to stick to the same selection of ales in here after a brief period of creativity. Folk night on Wednesdays so dropped in for a couple.

Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40GoodJust a whisker below it's best, lacked a little condition. I'd guess its been on a few days.

Evening visit sandwiched between two to The Chapel. Don't think I have been in here before as in days of yore (after Cobb's) it was uninspirational for ales. A visit in homage to that famous local occasional imbiber here - Edward Heath "Man of Principle"!

Second try at finding an interesting pint of ale in Broadstairs. Decent enough selection but nothing that imaginative. There seems to be some sort of celtic jam night here on a wednesday, it was brilliant.
