Mid evening and busy with amusingly loud swearing SAGA louts - and that included the men amongst them! We sat by the fire and enjoyed the raucous atmosphere in here tonight.
Tiny Rebel - Dutty4.20ExcellentHazy and fairly fresh didn't detract from the enjoyment of drinking this earthy hoppy citrus and pineapple broth.

Two cask ales on among the numerous keykegs. Discussion was about why a 4.2% citra was at £3.90 and a Gadds 4.7% beer at only £3.20.

Very short mid evening visit. Barman said no cask ales available as had only been delivered that morning.

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.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - East Kent India Pale Ale6.50GoodA nourishing beer, some slight haze
