Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Ramsgate, Kent, CT11 7SP.

Formerly known as the Shakespeare (and the One Hundred & Eighty) this pub in Margate Road has been transformed into a genuine free house and arts centre. It is owned by an opera singer Scheherazade Pesante (so some call the pub Spee's) and specialises in local real ales and ciders. No keg beers or lagers are stocked here. 4 handpumps plus a massive range of boxed ciders on offer. By 2018 seems to have been converted into The Little Tree bed & breakfast with occasional The Great Tree events held.

We have visited this pub 26 times, seen 47 different beers and tried 27 of them.
