An unplanned visit but we were walking past and noticed that Cracklewick was on sale so we entered. We were outnumbered by staff and may well have been the only proper customers. Warm and comfortable on our visit today. Pub games included shuffleboard, shove halfpenny (two boards), bagatelle, bat and trap, darts, chess/draughts, darts and others.

A nice pub hidden away and often missed on visits to Ramsgate. Fairly quiet this afternoon.

Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70PoorHazy and lifeless, this is the second time that I have had a Master Brew like this recently and I hope there is not a problem at the brewery.

Mid afternoon just a couple of others in, track and trace details given alas the comestibles consisted of not half price crisps and peanuts unlike the Red Lion.

Busy with a mixture of youth drinking lager and older people drinking mainly vodka and coke or cider. The landlady was very friendly and the pub felt like a city center local.
