Came for a dinner of fish so we sat upstairs in the restaurant. The food was okay. I would love to say that it was excellent but it was just okay. The beer on the other hand was excellent.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40ExcellentTop draw stuff for a Gadds beer that's not one of my preferred pints.
