This pub has now been sold. 5 real ales and loads of craft. Prices up significantly. Friends sent 2 of the beers back. Vinegary. Make the prices too high, you won't sell the beer.

Mid evening visit. Very quiet but great to hear Singing the Blues by Tommy Steele over the speakers, got me whistling. I wonder if the in-house brewery will ever emerge, despite its purpose built (with power and water sources) room on prominent show.

The pub is found in Broadstairs, Kent, CT10 1LR.

First incarnation was a former Pet Food shop converted into a micropub in 5 Charlotte Street specialising in cask ales and ciders. Opened on the 30th November 2012. The casks were visible racked behind the bar behind glass frontage. High tables with similarly high wall mounted bench seating abounds. Plans to relocate to a nearby much larger street corner premise at 11-13 Charlotte Street came to fruition on Friday Friday 5th May 2017 and this incorporates a brewhouse for what will be Broadstairs Town Brewery perhaps in 202??! 8 handpumps and 10 keg beer taps in the new location. Bar billiards upstairs where is some extra seating too. The new venue is too large to be a micropub so best called an alehouse or really just a pub.

We have visited this pub 77 times, seen 136 different beers and tried 93 of them.
