Stop 4 on our Ramsgate crawl - this town is superb for a pub crawl. Sat in the corner (main?) bar and didn’t notice any real ales at first. My daughter and I went for a half of the Earl Grey. Getting hungry at the stage and the pub was happy for us to “order in”. The pizza place across the road obliged with a delivery. A lovely building - and I particularly like the little “snug” bar that I only found on the way to the loo.
Marble - Earl Grey IPA6.80ExcellentThis was superb - my daughter described it as “having the nose of a wine”.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 35.00Good

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.
Tiny Rebel - City Of Gold5.50Not Tried

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.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - She Sells Sea Shells4.70ExcellentVery nice
Oakham - Citra4.20Not Tried

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

Saltaire - Unity IPA6.00ExcellentLovely pint at £3.50

Fourth pub and fairly quiet until we arrived. Echoing Phil's remarks regarding Keg vs Cask.
Boutilliers - Sunday Debut4.80AcceptableNot reading the small print (keg) I ordered this by mistake and instantly regretted it.
