Late lunchtime. I had a swift half to check this out, I was the only customer unlike the Bell opposite. This has only reopened about 3 months ago apparently after a long period of closure. It is bigger and barer than the Bell, far less cosy. The same tennants have both pubs - but the barman told me that they were “different breweries” - I guess he meant management companies (seems odd, perhaps Mr P can check it out) - both with a full beer tie so no Wantsum ales unfortunately. Smart new sign with wrought ironwork surround - I’ve sent a pic to Andrew.

Decided to check out the beer festival that was advertised in the paper, were slightly disappointed to find only 4 beers on when we arrived! Still the place had a good atmosphere and the beers they had on were all good.

A mate and I were on a 30 mile tour of Thanet so we had to stop in a new pub for a pint en route, this was the chosen resting point. Sat out in the garden on the deck chairs and soaked up the rays. I really liked this pub, nice relaxed atmosphere and a friendly barman.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Okell's - IPA (or Dr Okell's IPA)4.50GoodLight, citrussy and a little malty. Very easy to drink on a hot day such as this.
