SEARCHING for pubs not visited recently on this site and came here hoping for some good beers. There is alot of building work going on inside and its obvious that this pub is closed... at least for now. Some windows boarded up.

We had been informed there was Karaoke, unfortunately this wasn't the case. Still I haven't been here for a long while, not much has changed.

Fairly quiet and the girl behind the bar poured off a pint of Youngs before serving me mine - so top marks there. This is a funny pub I always think. Nice views of the sea but not my favourite place. Can't work out why though. Nothing to do with the staff as they're always friendly so it must be the decor or something.

Pub no. 4 and my last one before heading to Waitrose and then the station. Never been here before but I quite like it. Overlooking the sea front. Nice homely fee to it and with 5 handpumps. Most interest from the clientele was about Charlton losing except one table who talked about their friends ailments.

Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40GoodA very good best bitter. Slightly dusty toasty hop backs up some dry malt in mouth. It is very good and probably the best thing I've had today.

Got here at around 10 and it was really quiet, looked like they were about to close. So we got a quick one in and headed off.

Stonehenge - Pigswill4.00GoodVery fruity with plenty of malt, a little vanilla comes through as well. Quite nice, but not outstanding.

Heaving in here which is really good to see, the beer range wasn't great though.

I came out dressed in my old school uniform and stupidly didn't think to take my ID with me just in case. Pretty funny really, the girl behind the bar ID'd me, but luckily the landlord came to my rescue.

A few people were in and all watching the Olympics on the TV. I ordered my beer and immediately the landlord started chatting to me about his recent beer festival. It seemed it went quite well (he had 12 beers on). He said he usually has a Gadd’s on as he likes to support local produce. A very friendly chap he was and I liked his attitude. I hope he does well.

Mini beer festival was over and they were selling off the remainders for £1.80 a pint. I just hope the festival was actually a success.
