Quiet, which is a shame as it's a nice pub. The barman was friendly and you can control the music from your phone.

Mid evening visit, good thriving pub but was stiflingly hot and eventually staff opened the separate 2 front doors to create airflow. Sad to see more fizz beer than cask being sold.

First visit to the revamped pub. 2 beers on plus lots of expensive Key kegs not sold in pints but 1/3 or 2/3rds. One stout worked out at £9 a pint. Well it was 13%. Hipster pub, whatever that is?
Burning Sky - Plateau3.50ExcellentFine half at £1.50 made it a bargain here
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40GoodGood half

Closed at end of service today. Pub's Facebook page said: It is with deep regret and heavy heart that as of closing time Saturday 20th May, despite our best efforts, The Ravensgate Arms will call time at the bar for one last time. We would like to offer our heartfelt apologies to all our customers, We are all human and by nature fallible, mistakes are made and lessons learnt.

We hope that in the future Ramsgate will find a place for you all to continue building the amazing community that has grown within these four walls and beyond. It has been an absolute pleasure and a joy to provide you with, to the best of our abilities, a place we could all feel a part of. We would also like to thank you all for your continued support and friendship and express how much we have enjoyed our time serving this great community. We hope we can end on a positive note and see you all at the bar over the next couple of days. Peace & love. Team Ravensgate.
